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?
