On the June 21 episode of Married to Medicine Los Angeles, Dr. Imani Walker discussed her divorce with Dr. Britten Cole, explaining how she and Phil “had issues for a while” before deciding to end their marriage. During the July 11 episode of The Daily Dish podcast, which you can listen to below, Dr. Britten explained how her friend’s divorce had an impact on her very own relationship.
Dr. Britten said her husband, Mack, has often noted that she can be affected by her friends’ hardships. “Mack says that about me all the time. He’s like, ‘Whenever your friends go through something, I feel like you internalize that into our relationship.’”
“I think a lot of our girlfriends’ problems, we do kind of superimpose into our own relationships, because we don’t wanna be there, so we start asking the questions and bringing s--t up with our husbands and our boyfriends and whoever it is, and it starts to stir the pot a little bit,” said the anesthesiologist. “Not because we want to go in that direction, but it’s the opposite. We don’t want to.”
Dr. Britten explained that another couple’s divorce can cause you to reflect on your own relationship.
“I think sometimes, when you hear divorce, it does stir the pot. It makes you think, OK, what are we doing? Are we going down that road? Are we headed for divorce ourselves? What are we doing that’s wrong? Can we be better people? Can we be better toward each other? So think those things start to kick into gear and sometimes, it can create a little bit of a problem before it gets result, but I think that’s the point of it, you know?“
