The public puts too much pressure on celebrity couples according to author and trainer Rosalinda Randall, who was speaking after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt. 

Jolie filed for the divorce on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences. Robert Offer, her lawyer, claimed Jolie's decision was "for the health of the family". Reports have claimed the star is asking for physical custody of their six children, and visitation rights for Pitt. 

Randall, who offers coaching on civility and etiquette, believes pressure from the public might have impacted on their marriage.

"Why do we put so much pressure, and have so much expectations for these couples?" Randall asked. "They're just like everyone else, except they have no privacy whatsoever.

"The immense pressure on the relationships is like having that horrible mother-in-law lurking around every corner waiting for something bad to go on.

"I do think most people that are in a marriage want it to work and don't deliberately do anything to sabotage it," she explained. "Those little things start happening. If you allow them, things really do start drifting apart."
