If you haven’t heard, Brangelina is no more as of yesterday. Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, and no one was ready.

While we are super bummed about them going their separate ways, we are way more bummed about the people (mostly women) who have come out of the woodwork to call this sad separation karma.
This post on Facebook received comments like:
Honestly, I’m so sick and tired of women blaming other women when men cheat. If your boyfriend cheats on you, it’s not the other woman’s fault. She played a role in it, sure, but again, it wasn’t her fault.
News flash: it’s your boyfriend’s responsibility to stay faithful to you, not hers.
Even if you thought she was your friend, she’s not really your friend if she’s going to throw herself at your man. But, your man is WAY WORSE if he actually takes whatever some women is offering up to him.
When someone is in a relationship with you, barring some other understanding, you all have agreed to monogamy. You two agreed to be together and not to be with anyone else. Essentially, you’ve constructed this house of communication where you both get to live.
Sure, people can see in it, and it’s fragile, but no one gets in there without an invitation. Not your friends, not your coworkers, not random people off of the street. So, if another woman gets into your relationship, it’s not because she broke down some wall, it’s because your boyfriend opened the door. Is she wrong for stepping in? Yes, we would hope everyone would have more respect for each other, but you can’t blame her.
The same thing goes for Angelina and Brad. Brad Pitt did in fact start having an inappropriate relationship with Angelina Jolie when he was married to Jennifer Aniston.
Yet, Angelina is the one who usually takes the blame. Why? Because we just expect men to be dogs and cheat? Don’t give people that pass. Men have the ability to control themselves just like women do.
Angelina and Brad may not have been perfect, but they did do a lot of good. These are charity-giving, UN affiliated, child-adopting, fundraising people who made a significant difference in the lives of others. It is quite sad that these two powerhouses will no longer be united, but we hope nothing but the best for them.
