All Aboard the Delusion Train!

If there's any one way that's pretty fail-safe in solidifying the public's idea that you're marriage is in trouble, it's to post cutesy family photos amidst all the rumors; the end.
No, but seriously, there are lots and lots of silly rumors going around that Beyonce's going to leave Jay-Z after their "On the Run" tour, and that it's supposed to be this big, dramatic thing, but guys -- guys. Think this through for one second: how nonsensical would it be for Jay and Bey to break up -- at all, period -- when their relationship (and professional partnership) is so financially and creatively lucrative? Despite your feelings about either or both of them, It's probably just not going to happen, sorry.
And since Jay and Bey likely realize what we've realized, this is why we're kind of on cute family photo overload, and don't get us wrong: we'd much, much rather experience a constant onslaught of photos like this rather than the extraordinarily uncomfortable alternative, which is watching Beyonce pretending she actually cares about doing that whole surfboard-surfboard on stage with the man she's with -- for something like what, 14 years? -- over the next eight weeks.
Come on. Quit playing games, girl, and just do the damn music. We don't need the theatrics of simulated sex -- it's old hat -- nor do we need to be constantly reminded that you guys have an adorable family. It's a given, and god bless.
Does yours truly personally think that Beyonce and Jay-Z are going to split after "On the Run"? Well, no. But we'll see sometime after September 13th, won't we?
