Demi & Ashton, Mismatched from the Start!!

Did Demi & Ashton ever really stand a chance?
Thursday, 29 Sep 2011 
Ashton may have tweeted earlier this morning a link, without comment, to his Spotify account where he was playing the Public Enemy song "Don't Believe the Hype," but the lack of rep response from the couple’s spokespeople and Demi’s own tweets have done little to quash the growing storm that surrounds their marriage.

We consulted Dr Gilda Carle, the World’s Most Famous Relationship Expert to get her thoughts on the couple.

Demi and Ashton, Mismatched from the Start!

There are lots of cougars in happy marriages to younger men, where the age difference is never a factor. Personally, I never understood the pairing of Ashton and Demi, not because of their age discrepancy, but because of their different personalities. It was ultimately Ashton’s inability to handle a mature woman in her 40’s that tore this couple apart. Why do I say that? Dude was cheating with women in their 20’s! What does that suggest about this guy’s mentality? Twenty-year-olds don’t have the breadth of knowledge, or the sophistication, of women in their 40’s. Ashton obviously needed the adoration by younger women who would not challenge him.

Doesn’t he remind you of the 5th grade prankster stuck on performing practical adolescent jokes? Surely, he famously parlayed his fun into MTV’s successful Punk’d. Now he’s all that in Charlie Sheen’s old spot. Professionally, he’s doing very well. But how he’s doing emotionally is another story. Perhaps he thought cheating was still part of his adolescent game playing. Perhaps he wasn’t ready for a full family of 3 step-daughters. Perhaps he really wasn’t the marrying kind. Or perhaps he started out wanting mothering from Demi, only to find that, when he had to uphold a long-term commitment, he perceived the mothering to be smothering. As the Jerry Maguire movie showed us, someone can be good at friendship and bad at intimacy. It seems that at 33, Ashton still has a lot of growing up to do.
