Kendra Wilkinson Baskett recently decided it was time to end her marriage to Hank Baskett. Like many Kentucky residents, the former Playboy model admits that taking this step is difficult, but often necessary. Since Kendra and her future former husband have two children together, going ahead with the divorce may be one way in which they can save their parenting relationship.
Kendra and Hank had a rocky relationship marred by Hank’s infidelity and drug use. Despite these issues, they tried to make their marriage work, but in the end, Kendra says that it just was not meant to last. Even though she is saddened and heartbroken that her relationship has come to an end, Kendra admits that she and Hand remain committed to their children and are both good parents.
This is a significant step, and many Kentucky residents decide to take it as well. Even when the marital relationship sours and remaining married is no longer a viable option, couples can shift their focus to their children. A not-so-good wife or husband can easily be an outstanding parent, and as long as the parties can acknowledge that about each other, there may be a way forward.
Divorce is rarely easy, even when mutually agreed upon by both parties. In order to get through the process, many parents focus on their children. This often helps make every aspect of the divorce less contentious since reducing the stress and impact the process has on the family, especially the children, takes priority instead of attempting to “punish” each other for the fact that the marriage did not last.
