Music: None - watching the Astros vs. Braves
Based on an article I read on Foxnews.com that basically states that Katie Holmes has abandonned her business allies (manager, publicist, etc.), has stopped projects and has stopped contact with her friends, I would say that she has in effect abandonned her life "Pre-Cruise".
So, let's fast-forward 6 months from now. The "Honeymoon" is beginning to wear off. Katie learns more about herself, Scientology and life overall. What happens when she doesn't share the same point of view on any specific issue with Tom?
A woman abandonning her ideals for that of a man's; does that really work? I know of stories of men who have bent over backwards to win over a woman, even if it means changing religions to satisfy parents. But does it really ever work when it's the reverse? I don't think Cruise has proven to be a good catch for Holmes. No doubt, there probably isn't a woman out there who wouldn't give away her first born for Tom Cruise. Let's face it, though those women have about as good a chance at having Tom Cruise as they do at winning the lottery.
I guess the bottom line is that it is my own opinion that women should never ever chase men. A woman can catch a man without chasing a man. But for a woman to abandon everything she is for a man who has yet to prove himself to her, that only spells problems. If Tom becomes abusive towards her, where will she turn? Who are her allies? She has none. She is abandoning her roots and her identity.
Knowing that this woman is a complete stranger to me, I sincerely hope for the best for her. The best thing for Katie is a family who steps back while constantly reminding her that they are there for her and that no matter what, they will always be there. I have a very strong feeling she is going to need them soon.
I think that the whole world is beginning to understand why Nicole Kidman divorced this man.
