Select one popular celebrity couple portrayed in the media (e.g. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Beyonce & Jay-Z, Victoria & David Beckham, Barrack & Michelle Obama, Chrissy Teigen & John Legend, Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively…). Using interdependence theory and your knowledge of the couple (from popular magazines, social media, television, or celebrity/gossip blogs), create a chart of the relationship that resembles the examples presented
in Figure 6.1 (page 178 in the 8th edition, page 181 in the 7th edition, and page180 of the 6th edition) (2.25 points). Explain why you charted the relationship this way (2.25 points). Using concepts from interdependence theory (e.g., CL, CLalt, Outcomes), explain why the couple has broken up (if they have broken up), or why they will break up (if you think they will break up), or why they will stay together (if you think they will stay together) (3 points). (1.5 points will be given for proper formatting and academic writing, including page length and proper grammar).
