Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ recent nuptials in South Carolina may have felt sudden to some, but for Patti Stanger, their I do’s came just in time.
“In a way, I feel like I owe Blake and Ryan a big thank-you for stepping in and clearing up my power-couple breakup blues,” the Millionaire Matchmaker confides to People. Along with the rest of us, she mourned the end of Heidi Klum and Seal’s marriage, as well as Amy Poehler and Will Arnett’s not-so-funny split. “I needed a new super couple to turn my frown upside down, and Blake and Ryan couldn't be more super. Here's why I think this couple is so amazing.”
For one, Patti adores a man willing to take the plunge. “Look as his track record, and you'll see that Ryan is not afraid of commitment,” writes the love master. “He sees a woman he wants and he goes for it. In an age in which commitment phobia is as rampant as mono in a freshman dorm, men who can commit are worth their weight in gold.”
And about that 10-year age difference? It’s just right by P’s measurements. “While the decade between these two may feel like more than just ‘a bit,’ remember that Blake is no typical, fresh-out-of-college twentysomething. She got her first break when she was 18, in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and has been working nonstop since. The two of them actually have comparable careers, despite his extra time in the business.”
