Every January 1st, as we welcome the next year with a steaming headache and eyeballs that hurt even when we think about them, we are each faced with the impossible task of trying to predict for our own bemusement what crestfallen love affairs shall crumble before our very eyes in the months to come.
Trying to peer into our own ridiculous crystal ball of a brain is usually as pointless as planning that exhilarating 5 mile jog for New year’s Day; nothing can come of it; nothing ever does.
And yet, that’s part of the fun, isn’t it?
Part of the joy of being alive is whittling away at the days to come and having a go at fortune-telling and predicting who will fall in love this year, who will be busted for being a slight pervert, who will rise in the name of love, and yes, who will stumble beneath it’s heft.
Then, next year, we can look back and see how freaking wrong we were. And our jaws can drop one last time as we consider just how unexpected and surprising some of the past year’s turn of events proved to be.
Who could have thought that 2012 would spell what it spelled for so many couples?
Who could have known that TomKat would end so suddenly?
Or that the American President and a big guy from Jersey could have such a powerful bromance?
Life is crazy, ain’t it?
So, join me as I look back at some of the past year’s biggest stories involving couples…or former couples, as the case may be.
