Is Jessica Alba’s Marriage to Cash Warren in Trouble?

Posted by sparky on February 8th, 2010

Jessica Alba, who is starring in the upcoming comedy Valentine’s Day, made some cryptic remarks about the institution of marriage in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan magazine.  She’s been married to Cash Warren since 2008.  But her comments suggest that there may be trouble in paradise.  She says, for example,

“I had a hard time agreeing with marriage at all because I feel like its been warped. Originally, it was two families coming together to make a stronger family. It was about survival — not love or soul mates.”

I’m not sure what to make of this.  Jessica isn’t entirely articulate here.  She’s not saying that marriage is crap, as has been suggested by another website.  But she seems to be saying that there is an idea of marriage that doesn’t match what goes on in reality.   This is supported by another comment that she makes.

“And now the way they market marriage — even as a kid through Disney movies — is that it’s all about Prince Charming sweeping you off your feet. There’s this mentality that you need the big dress and the big day — the day every girl gets to be a princess. I didn’t agree with any of that. This tradition of obeying your husband like he’s your king? It’s a load of crap. Love and honor, yes. But you should love and honor yourself too, and all your friends.”

So is she happily married?  I’m not sure.  When asked why she tied the knot with Cash she says, “I chose to get married because, essentially, you’re given a deck of cards in life. The hand you were dealt with is your family and you can’t choose them.”

Do I hear bitterness?  Maybe she’s MiserAlba after all!  And maybe guys you still got a chance!
