    Why bother getting engaged, just get married already and make the 6 kids happy.

    I swear, if I were Robin Gibb, I would want people to stop praying that I keep on going. My wish would be to move on. I, honestly, think that people's prayers can keep you earthbound....even though I am not particularly religious.

    About Angelina and Brad getting married, I am a fan of the saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Marriage can have a way of imploding things. For their sake, I hope that is not the case.

    Because they want to?

    This afternoon while I was out running errands, "Stayin' Alive" came on the radio. The DJ said something about Robin. I thought it was pretty crass to play that specific song when Robin is likely dying.

    I read something today from the "Gibb's Mom" she feels like her family is cursed much like the Kennedy's. I can not imagine losing so many children so young and to be facing it again.. No parent should ever have to bury their children and she has buried two and probably will be doing it one more time. I can NOT imagine the heartache

    I agree...the Gibb family has had more than their share of heartache.

    We don't know the whole story, but obviously he wasn't happy with Jen and he is happy with her. I always heard he wanted a big family and he has what he wanted.

There were reports that Brad and Jen's marriage had been in trouble for a long time before he did the movie with Angie. Whatever happened, that's their business. I'm not going to pass judgment. Sometimes things happen and we don't always act the way we know we should. Sometimes we do. We can't know what really happened. All of the parties involved seem happy now, so I say good for them.

    I know I wouldn't want my life splashed over the tabloids. I fear I wouldn't fare any better than some of the celebs, even though I think I'm a good person. I'm human and so are they.
    Exactly! And it is the media who won't let it die. My God, we can't even talk about them getting engaged 7 years after they got together without Jen's name being thrown into the story. The sad part, for the person above who mentioned them being pushed in our faces, is that the evidence out there is that when one (or more) of them are on the covers of a magazine, circulation goes up. So while there are plenty who don't want to see or read it, apparently there are still more who do - which is why the media stoops to making stuff up to keep them on the covers. I mean seriously, before this, how many times have they been engaged and a wedding imminent? And how many times has Jen been pregnant? Just sayin'!

    A million dollars for an engagement ring seems indulgent. They intend to marry this summer, so I really don't see the point- jmho
