Sexpert slams couples who stay together for the kids as it’s their own ‘misery’

It’s never going to be easy ending a relationship, especially when there’s kids involved.

And for many of these couples, it’s a simple reason for them to stay together.

Nadia Bokody, a sex writer from Australia, slammed mums and dads who stay together for the sake of their kids.

Speaking to news.com.au, Nadia says couples shouldn’t accept “relationship dissatisfaction” because of society.

She also urged parents who feel “stuck” in unhappy relationships to prioritise their own happiness.

The sexpert wrote: “We refer to our spouses as ‘ball and chains’, to marriage as the ‘end of the game’ and describe our consequential unhappiness as ‘the end of the honeymoon period’ and the beginning of the ‘seven-year itch’.”

She continued: “It’s also vastly easier than the alternative – acknowledging our accountability for the situation. No one likes to fess up to being at fault. Even I have a hard time coming clean to my partner when I’ve screwed up.

“It’s arguably more comfortable to take on the role of the victim and complain about how s****y our relationship is and how ‘stuck’ we are, in the same way we moan about the environment, the government and our jobs without taking steps toward impacting change.”

For those worried about a divorce because of their children, Nadia also looked into a study which shows how rapidly kids bounce back after their parents split.

She detailed: “What they [children] won’t soon recover from is growing up in an environment with a relationship model that prioritises commitment over happiness, and learned helplessness over accountability.”

The sex writer concluded: “It’s never too late to make a change. Heartbreak heals, kids bounce back, and you can always earn more money.

“But you can never gain back the time you lost publicly arguing over guacamole.”

Last week, the 36-year-old spilled the beans on polyamory relationships and why couples have sex with others.
