Hilary Swank: How Long Is Too Long to Wait?
By Dr. Jane Greer
Celebrity stars shine so bright and we look up to them. Yet often we are puzzled when they fall, so Shrink Wrap is here to shed light on all.
Some hollywood starlets seem to cycle through a new relationship each season. In the age of the 72 hour marriage, the public’s expectations are low for a true long term relationship.
But LTR seems to be the name of the game for Oscar winning actress Hilary Swank. She was with actor Chad Lowe for nearly 14 years, including 8 years of marriage, until the pair split in 2006. Almost immediately after the breakup, Swank connected with her latest beau, agent John Campisi. But this week, after 5 years, the two announced their seperation.
So why did it end? While there may have been other things going on in the relationship, reports suggest it could be because he didn’t propose. And with time moving on, Hilary may have felt it necessary to move on herself. Waiting for a partner who is never quite ready to take the plunge is unpleasant and tiring. But making the choice to walk away is painful, and often confusing too. How long should a woman wait for a proposal, assuming marriage is her cup of tea? How does she decide when it’s time to finally throw in the towel, and walk away?
