Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger recently tied the knot after a whirlwind romance that would rival that of Elizabeth Taylor and Tim Burton, and they’ve got a fool-proof method to make sure nothing comes between them: marriage rules! That’s right, Avril and Chad are both banned from having any alcohol or going to any nightclubs without each other, no matter how long they’re apart. Because nothing says “loving, trusting relationship” like prohibiting your other half from doing anything fear that s/he might not have enough self control not to cheat on you.
“We don’t drink when we’re apart,” says Kroeger. “Ever. Even if we’re apart for weeks.” Lavigne says that it’s just the responsible thing to do. “We want to protect what we have,” she says.
No nightclubs. “We don’t want to go anywhere that you’re asking for trouble,” says Kroeger. He adds, “I don’t want to be in Europe texting her, like ‘Where are you?’ ” he says. “This way we don’t have to worry about any of that stuff.”
LOL. I mean, listen – if they’re both okay with this, then whatever, everyone Namaste and all that. And there is, of course, the added element of their “fame”, which means paparazzi will make shit up if they see one of them out and they happen to be talking to someone of the opposite sex, even if it’s just to order a drink. Also, if you’re married, I don’t really see why you’d be big into the club scene anyway. To dance? I mean, maybe, but… not really, so I can sorta see the motivation behind this. I still think it’s corny and probably largely based on the fact that Avril cheated on Derek Whibley when they were together (right?). Who even knows.
I think they’ll be divorced within the next two years.
