LAURA'S LOVE LIFE ADVICE: NEVER Let Your BF Quit His Job Just To Be With You Like Eric Has Done For Jessica!!

Thu, September 30, 2010 7:23pm EST by 6 Comments

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!

Sadly, I must disagree. He does have a job and it isn’t 9 to 5. It’s 24/7. Keeping Ms. Simpson happy is work! This interlude will look great on his resume in the future. And think of the book (tell-all) he can write! The guy knows what he’s doing!

ha my husband has quit jobs and not discussed it with me. He moved across the country to be with me too. 5 years later we’re still happy as can be. So its not always a bad thing if things weren’t working the way they were before.

Another thing, this Hollywood romance is Jessica Simpson’s….sorry, but what’s her success rate in that department? Financially supporting a man…’buying love’ doesn’t usually work now does it?

OT: I heard she’s the judge for the finale of Project Runway…now look at the K-Mart ensemble she’s sporting and tell me what that’s about?

Excellent advice for real people Laura, but lots of Hollywood celebs and or reality TV stars may not fall into that category.
This guy is in it for:
1. money
2. Celebrity life and attention
3. sex with Jessica Simpson

He’s in love and wouldn’t have his mind on his work if he went to school anyway. I guess he can always go to school later…maybe not to that school though…he may have blown that chance but now he wants to live the celebrity life and I can’t blame him. This particular school may have been a once in a lifetime chance but so is dating Jessica Simpson.

while i agree with you in the real world, i don’t see how or why this guy would bother with wharton if he’s going to be the spouse of a celebrity. it’s a demanding school where he’d have to give up his fun times with her for two years, and then he’d start a demanding job where he’d also not have flexibility to spend much time with her. he needs something more flexible if he wants to run with her, in my humble opinion. i don’t disagree with you about all of the problems this could cause though- but his business school world, and long hours thereafter, weren’t going to fit in her world anyway.
