Many couples famous celebrities have been lucky enough to avoid the press entirely while they were dating. That is a blessing for many famous couples who would have given everything they own including their fame for some privacy while they were celebrity dating. Many celebrity couples do feel that the blame for their break-up does involve the press and the way that they sniff around a celebrity like some stray dog that needs a bone for the next big made up story.
There are celebrity couples that are happily married and don't let the press or anyone else for that matter drag them down. One couple that is still going strong is Victoria and David Beckham; they have had three children together and still seem more then happy together. There has been rumors of cheating on David's behalf and that story ran for a long time with accusations being thrown left, right and centre and the Beckham's marriage seemed to be on the line but they held together strong and survived the barrage of newspaper stories and are still together today. Of course who has come out of this a better person the women who first ran to the press with this story Ms. Rebecca Loos who now gets multi-million pound television deals. Although she is now more regarded as a Z list celebrity rather then an A list celebrity. Maybe some people see this as the reason that they can run to the press saying that they slept with someone who is famous because then they may become the lucky one who then gets television deals and more money from the newspapers to repeat the same story for them and then the media can spice it up a bit and get more money for this story.
Of course if the media do go to far then they are liable to end up in court facing charges that will look bad to them and their newspaper. Some newspapers do still have their dignity and are respected by some people. There are the newspapers that will print only true stories that are not based on lies and stories that do not have a foundation to them. These newspapers are low and seem to be a dying breed of high quality papers that will treat celebrity's with the respect that they deserve.
