The 50-year-old musician behind hits such as Right Here Waiting and Hold On To The Nights has announced his split with actress and singer Cynthia Rhodes, 57 – best known for her role as Penny Johnson in Dirty Dancing.Actors Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor have announced they are separating after 17 years of marriage and at least three movies together, his representative confirmed to USA TODAY.In a joint statement provided by his publicist Liz Mahoney, the couple said, "With tremendous love and respect for each other, and the 18 years we spent together as a couple, we have made the decision to separate.

Take their therapy money and use it for your vacation. It's far more important that you eat at the same time, even if one of you has a full-on meal and the other sips tea, even if your kids are making normal conversation, um, elusive. This will prevent throwing upsetting issues out there at the wrong time. Ironically, I still feel like that's not all that much; those older and wiser than us have so much to teach us. Remember that what you think is the "right" way is simply "the way you're used to" and may, shockingly, even be "the wrong way." So keep an open mind.
