Love and loyalty are the inevitable traits that hold a marriage together. When you fall in love, you vow to keep the fondness and warmth for each other all life long, such as the sanctity of love marriage. And, when celebrities get hitched, it all plays out like a fairytale romance in the minds of their fans. However, this picture-perfect disposition of Bollywood marriages can be a myth as well. Blame the dark side of glamour, ever prying tabloid glare or the realisation that Cupid can indeed strike more than once, but the fact remains that matches made in heaven do end up midway on earth.
