Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy are splitting after 40 years, and this is why it's horrifying

Calling it quits after 40 years is no simple statement.
  • By now, you’ve probably heard the news about Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. After 40 years together, they are calling it quits, as was announced in tweets from both twitter accounts.

  • So… why? I mean, clearly there are not real reasons for a divorce to occur seeing how Kermit and Miss Piggy are, in fact, not real.

  • This incident highlights some very concerning things about our culture regarding relationships. Why is it that we, as people, are so obsessed with other people being sad? Why do we care when celebrities divorce, but are so casual about beautiful occurrences in the lives of those around us – a child being born, a day-to-day successful marriage.

  • We’ve become completely casual about tossing off relationships like they don’t matter or are things we can’t control, that even our fictional childhood Muppet heroes are encouraging this mindset.

  • So please mourn for the famous Muppet couple, but also tell the people you love that you love them - even if you think they already know.
