Miranda Kerr Made An Important Choice

For many married couples, divorce is either frowned on, or becomes an essential choice to bring about peace amongst the parties involved. Kerr opened up about her decision to end her marriage— stating that it was all for the sake of her son.

She further explained this comment when she noted that ‘it is better for a couple to be separated, than try to force their marriage, and live unhappily together. While both instances have their bad sides, it’s clear that unhappy parents cannot be available emotionally for their kids, thereby leading to a host of problems in the future.
