As a marriage counselor, I am committed to strict client confidentiality. And I understand why. Couples who come to counseling want to make sure what they tell me isn't going to get out to their friends. And by keeping things confidential, it also ensures couples can talk about the real problems they're having and don't have to hold back out of fear that might get out. For these and other (legal) reasons, I make sure to keep my clients' information strictly confidential.

In an environment where the rich and famous are as likely to have a divorce attorney on speed dial as their agent, it seems a celebrity couple is doomed to inevitable failure simply because they are famous, and divorce is a mere casualty of the job.

Another prom dress modesty tussle was in the news recently as a Catholic high school in Pennsylvania is requiring students to get preapproval on their prom dresses by sending front and back photos to an administrator before buying dance tickets. The dress code bans gowns that are “extremely short, have an extremely low-cut front or back, have any excessively high-cut slits, have overly revealing midriffs or be inappropriately revealing — giving the illusion of nudity.”
