    Katie Price, previously known under the pseudonym Jordan, cuts a lonely figure even when she's not alone.

    The British television personality, occasional singer and former model has been in love and then she's been out of it … Then she's been in love again and fallen out of it … again. It's kind of sad.

    When Price got together with singer Peter Andre, I was quietly pleased for her. It wasn't because I'm the biggest Jordan fan on earth, but because I felt that she needed someone stabilising in her life. She needed someone who genuinely cared about her. Of course, a few years and a couple of years later, that marriage crashed and burned, and she was left single again. She didn't let it get her down, however, and struck up a relationship with professional fighter Alex Reid and tied the knot with him in 2010. Not long after, that marriage dissolved as well.

    There's been a media frenzy with the royal wedding taking place this Friday, and it's no different than the publicity that surrounded the marriage of Prince William's parents, Prince Charles and Princess Diana. In fact, Wills and Kate Middleton's ceremony just might top the 1981 "wedding of the century," which had 3,500 people at the ceremony in St. Paul's Cathedral and approximately 750 million viewers worldwide - but we'll have to wait until this weekend to find out. In honor of the exorbitant wedding talk, let's take a look at the seven most hyped celebrity weddings of the last decade:

  • Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson: Is the Age Difference an Issue?

    By Christie Hartman, PhD for Cupid's Pulse

    After 14 years of marriage, Sean Penn and Robin Wright divorced in July 2010. Now Penn, who's 50, has been caught canoodling with Scarlett Johansson, 26. Yes, your calculations are correct: Sean Penn is dating a woman who is literally half his age.

    Of course, the obvious questions are: Why would Sean Penn go for someone so young? And why would Scarlett Johansson date a man so much older than herself? That's when all the pseudo-scientists come out of the woodwork and start spouting evolutionary theory - i.e. that older men like young and pretty women because they represent fertility, and that younger women like older, not-necessarily-good-looking men because they have the maturity and means to care for her and her young. While there is some truth to these theories, it's only a small part of what drives dating (and mating) behavior. More often, such theory is used as an excuse for older men to chase women who are too young for them, and for younger women to seek sugar daddies.

    Spring is in the air, and so is dating! With the fresh spring air comes a new way to approach dating. The goal for this season? Focus on friendships, which may lead to romance later on when you truly know your mate-to-be. Celebrities like Ryan Phillippe could certainly use this wisdom right now. Phillippe's recent relationship with Amanda Seyfried seems to be on and off, and he was also recently accused of having "innocent sleepovers" with Rihanna. It seems to be a game of celebrity musical chairs in Hollywood these days, filled with all sorts of drama. For the rest of us, who prefer to keep drama-free peaceful relationships, the following tips could go a long way:

    1. Rid your life of toxic people: Keep those who are discouraging and who don't support and believe in you on the sidelines. Your energy field can take a turn for the worst with negative influences in your life.

    Why do some celebrity couples end up as a train wreck, while others seem to withstand the test of time? Different strategies work for different power couples. For some, private time is the glue that cements them. For others, it's a conscious decision to put marriage and family before work or making time for grand romantic gestures.

    There's a new survey out in Britain that suggests the "three-year glitch" has replaced the "seven-year itch" as the tipping point where couples start to take each other for granted. I notice that when I'm asked how long my husband and I have been married, I get a response that is a mixture of surprise, shock and awe. "Ten years? Wow!" The reaction is then followed by a knowing nod of the head and a silly grin, as if we have unwittingly found the cure for cancer or something equally as impressive. That said, marriages do seem to be getting shorter and shorter. 50% percent of first, 67% of second and 74% of third marriages end in divorce, according to Jennifer Baker of the Forest Institute of Professional Psychology in Springfield, Missouri.
