Barbie and Ken Breaking Up; Ken to Date Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Joe

The Guardian reports that Barbie and Ken are breaking up after 43 years as a couple.
“The couple’s ‘business manager,’ Russell Arons, vice president of marketing at Mattel, said that Barbie and Ken ‘feel it’s time to spend some quality time – apart.’ ”
Arons hinted Wednesday that the separation may be partially because of Ken’s reluctance to get married. All those bridal Barbie dolls in toy chests around the globe are really just examples of Barbie’s wishful thinking, she explained.
In a couple weeks, they’ll run into each other in the same-sex marriage line in San Francisco’s city hall.
