Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher married last Saturday, in a private Kabbalah ceremony at their Beverly Hills home. The happy news may chagrin the cynics who thought their romance was a media stunt from the get-go, but ought the newlyweds worry that their honeymoon will mark the end of all the great publicity? In 2003, Demi-Ashton skeptic David Plotz weighed in on their then-rumored relationship with a short history of celebrity dating  and a how-to guide for the career-focused Hollywood player. He advised against taking vows: "It is generally considered a bad career move to allow celebrity dating to progress to marriage. When a sexy actor marries, it dims his hot image. When a sexy actress marries, it's even worse. The story gets boring for the public."
