Yale-educated former football player Eric Johnson gave up going to business school to be with Jessica Simpson — which is a totally stupid move!
Here is the number one lesson in all relationships: never become completely dependent on your partner!
Take Jessica Simpson and her new boyfriend, Eric Johnson, as a prime example of what NOT to do. The former New Orleans Saints player gave up going to the exclusive Wharton Business School in order to stick by Jess’ side like a puppy dog. This situation sucks for a few reasons: #1, because Eric gave up something for Jess, he can always guilt trip her to do whatever he wants — and she’ll basically have to do it unless she’s the worst girlfriend in the world. #2 Eric, 30, is going to be bored as heck all day just following Jessica, also 30, around the world — and lord knows, when a man is bored, he can get himself into serious trouble. #3 Hello, Eric — but wake up and smell the coffee! You’re letting Jess be the only ‘breadwinner’ in the family? Don’t you feel emasculated letting her pay for absolutely everything?
Inevitably, this situation is headed downhill. Although Jessica loves that she’s supporting her man (this is probably her version of being a feminist!), when he doesn’t act exactly how she wants him to, there’s going to be hell to pay. He’s essentially a kept man!
In summary, never, ever let your man give up something as big as a job, or his friends, or his family, for you. Things might go your way temporarily, but down the line, in the not-so-distant future, there’s going to be hell to pay for your relationship!
