Number two cause of divorce? A relationship so flimsy that you're worried it can be ruined by wearing sweatpants.

In an interview with Extra, Eva Mendes explained that she doesn't wear casual gear at home, saying, "Ladies, number one cause of divorce in America: sweatpants!"

Sigh. I can't even get angry at Mendes. I just want to wrap her in a big hug and ask her what the hell happened in her previous relationships that made her think that if she isn't always dressed sexily, the relationship won't hold. (I would also tell her that they make some very sexy sweatpants these days.)

Maybe I should give Mendes the benefit of the doubt and assume that her point was that relationships take work, and if you stop making an effort, that's when a partnership suffers. If so, I agree. But a really good partner should also love and support you whether life is easy or difficult, whether things are good or bad, and whether you're wearing a skinny mini-dress or ratty sweatpants. If you're paranoid that looking like a schlub sometimes is a straight line to divorce, there's something wrong with your relationship.
