This couple just had to tell over 9 million subscribers that they're breaking up.

In a video that was honestly hard to watch, the couple shared that their daily vlogging took a toll on their relationship and their sanity.

They've been vlogging since 2009 every single day and as for yesterday, they couldn't take it any more.

This vlog made me think about the couples that I know who vlog, and how they can possible sustain a healthy relationship.

Just like this couple said in the video, how can you tell when you're doing something "for the vlog" or when you're doing something because you genuinely love the person.

Its a really fine line.

Interracial Couples

Blogs like Rachel & Jun or MyKoreanHusband capitalize on the fact that they're in an interracial couple. While Rachel and Jun actually post really valuable advice on living in Japan, MyKoreanHusband makes me SQUIRM.
The title of the vlog says it all, she's selling the fact that she has a Korean husband since Korea is "trendy" right now. I can't imagine that makes the relationship easy...

The Prank Couples

This is actually the same couple as the breakup video. They made daily prank videos and to be honest, I wouldn't be able to last a week of this. Even if you're pissed off and tired of it, you have to keep the pranks going :/

Power Couples

What happens when you're BOTH successful vloggers?
For example, Sarah (who has 350k followers on her vlog devoted to her baby) and Joe (nearly 3million followers on his guitar vlog) are the ultimate social media power couple. They, however, keep their work as separate as possible and the closest they come to sharing their relationship was this wedding video and anything Sarah might share with her baby vlog.
There is also ThePointlessBlog/Alfie (3 million followers) and Zoe/Zoella (10 million followers) who are also super vloggers. Zoe was known for having panic attacks about people talking about her relationship with Alfie...

So, seeing the different kinds of couples on youtube:

Do you think that vlogging will ruin their relationships or do you think couples that are meant to be together will be together no matter what?

Would you ever start vlogging?

I don't like watching couple's vlog, it's weird, i can only focus on one person at any given time, two ppl just seem to fight for the spotlight. I enjoy the anonymity and value my privacy too much, so vlog will never be my thing.
yeah, I feel like daily vlogs would be super time consuming. when do you actually have time just for each other? weekly vlogs sound so much more doable for sure.
To me it depends on how you start out vlogging, or if you're just doing it for the followers. If you're doing it just for fun, like I know one youtuber who vlogs about her time in Korea, BUT she's only doing that because she wants to share her experience with other people and her family back in the U.S. Sometimes she'll do videos where she's answering questions from the comments, but that's all she does. Those kind of people, if they ever have a boyfriend or husband that does the same thing, shouldn't habe problems in my opinion because then they wouldn't have to worry about acting for the sake of having followers. I think I would struggle with having a relationship if 90% of the stuff we do together is only for the sake of vlogging, but I wouldn't vlog about it and post on youtube for the world to see 馃槀馃槀
I think that couples who want to be with each other will stay together. Maybe the vlogging was too much and they just needed time to themselves which they never got. Thus leading them apart. I think that space from constant vlogging is necessary.
@jordanhamilton yeah! a couple I follow do a weekly vlog that just sums up their week. It seems like a little journal that they can look back on, and if you want to watch with them you can. Daily vlogs on the other hand would suck the life and love out of a relationship REAL fast.
