Should Couples Stay Together For The Kids? Tiffney Cambridge Weighs The Pros and Cons

It’s an age old question. Should couples fight to stay together for the sake of their children even though they both believe that their time together is spent? Marrying the Game star Tiffney Cambridge took a stab at the question during a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister.

“It really depends on the situation and the relationship. All children deserve to be in a home that has a mother and a father,” said the school teacher-turned-reality-star.

“If you can make that situation work, then by all means, you should try,” she added.

Tiffney went on to say that she hopes she and her ex-fiancée, The Game, are able to make things work for the sake of their family.

“It’s probably everyone’s first choice to be together with the father of your children—make your family work. I hope that for myself and for other families, as well.”

She also discussed fellow reality TV couples Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan and NeNe and Gregg Leakes and their ability to reconcile.

“I try not to look at other people’s relationship as like a barometer. I don’t compare or gauge my relationship with someone else’s. With NeNe and [the Barneses], they have children together. You’ve been with the person for a long time. I don’t think there’s ever going to be a point where you don’t deal with the person. I think that if the couple desires to be together and make it work and there’s still love there…, people work things out. I think it’s commendable that people want to keep their families together and strong.”

Although she’s an advocate for making it work, Tiffney says that there are some situations where children would be better off if their parents parted ways.

“If you’re arguing in front of your kids and when you can’t come together, it will probably be best to break up. I don’t believe in doing any arguing, fighting and all that in front of children. It really depends on what’s going on and the individual relationship,” she said.

So what do you think? Is staying together for the kids a wise decision?

    I really like her because she is a educated women.But, I feel sorry that she has to downgrade herself & wait on her kids father to want to grow up and be the man she needs him to be.Trust and believe she will resent this man in the long run ( been there done that).She knows what she and her children deserve and this relationship ain’t it.

    she’s right. it depends on the situation. some relationships can be salvaged but some can’t. people know when they are over it and have to move on.

    I guess she is still waiting on the game to marry her…………….. I don’t think couples should stay together for the sakes of the children. Children are observant and pick up things when their parents don’t get along. Parent should co-parent and help raise the children together that they produced. They have to get along when it comes to raising children.

    I’m not sure if it’s a wise decision. I think adults underestimate a childs intelligence. A child knows when a parent is unhappy and sad. Pretending to be happy go lucky doesn’t do a child any good. Being a happy family can be done without two people in the house as long as both parents doors stay open.

      Completely agree

        I think this is the last person giving advice. Based on the show the children look happy

    I agree with her. I chose to stay in the relationship with my daughters father when I knew I should have left when she was born. But you try and you think things are going to work but 7 years later nothing changes and it’s just time to move on. Children shouldn’t see there parent’s sad and angry all the time it’s not healthy. Plus they will always look back on the relationship the parents have. I’m glad my boys were too young to remember anything when I left there father. Because all they know now is that we are good friends and sometimes best friends. Those are good memories for them.
