Any person needs an assurance in a relationship before they can be sure whether they want to go ahead and get married. What right do we have to say that the minute they start dating each other, they have to let the whole world know about it? Most of the times, two celebrities who are fully committed and know that they will marry confess to the media that they are in an affair. So we cant say that they always lie to the public. I would say that it is unfair to say such things about celebrities. Even they are normal human beings who have their freedom.
Why we poke into the affairs of others. We should concern ourselves only to that part of others life which are supposed to be public. Like that of the acting part of the actors or public utterances of politicians etc. We have no right to intrude. Even if they are having affairs or not should not bother us. It is between the concerned persons, if any.
What we know on these matters are on the basis of media which as Lakshmi Ramdas stated need not be factual. It may simply be gossip. In the case of actors she/he may have to interact with many persons of the opposite sex. Does it mean that all these are for any affairs only? It could be something to do with their professional or social activities.
Good media should publicise only verified facts on on the basis of guess and gossip. Unfortunately, just as we are showing interest in others private life, media try to publish what they feel to publish. Since they have the immunity as the public media, no action is easily possible against them.
