In the world of Tinseltown two people who often take to Twitter to declare their undying love have been laying low, Tweeting ambiguous chirps, or simply dodging the question. Is this marriage of Demi Moore to Ashton Kutcher, who is15 years younger than she is, on the rocks? Or are we seeing an example of the forgiveness factor as depicted in Psychology Today: Low Infidelity, Shock Statistics, and the Forgiveness Factor? The Washington Post said yesterday: “One week after rumors of a split began plaguing Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, this is what we know for sure: nothing.”
But here is what we do know:
The tabloids are churning out stories, but no word officially from either Moore of Kutcher about the state of their marriage or his alleged cheating in a hot tub with a party gal.
Moore’s Tweets were interesting as reported on September 28::
First there was the nude self-photo that Moore sent around Twitter last week. But even most telling was a Tweet on Sept. 23, in which Moore quoted Epictetus, a Greek philosopher saying,
“When we are offended at any man’s fault, turn to yourself & study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger.” Ashton Kutcher & Demi Moore: Are They Splitting?
But not to be outdone, aplusk ashton kutcher wrote this to his followers:
“When you ASSUME to know that which you know nothing of you make an ASS out of U and ME” 29 Sep
The two reportedly attended Rosh Hashanah services together. Can this be make-up time again for a man who seems to stray, but whom Moore seems to reel back in? Let’s not forget that she whisked him away to Israel after gossip about his playtime last year with hottie Britteny Jones.
Gossip Cop weighs in
“While acknowledging that the couple appeared together at Rosh Hashanah services after the alleged scandal first broke, Us points out that there have been no comments by either star’s representative, nor has Kutcher stridently denied the rumors as he did last year when a tabloid linked him to a woman named Brittney Jones.”
The forgiveness factor
Only time will tell. But Moore seems to have a forgiving heart. And we have learned from experts such as Michele Weiner-Davis, www.divorcebusting.com, and Dr. Ruth Westheimer that even with infidelity, marriages can be saved.
