Britney Spears has filed for divorce from Kevin Federline, and Kevin says he has been "blindsided". Britney secretively filed for divorce, sending an apparent shock to her husband as he was photographed reading a text message delivering the news. According to Federline, the marriage suffered because he spent too much time with his children. While Kevin Federline parented his children, Britney was having serious emotional health issues, leading to psychiatric treatment. Unfortunately, both Britney and Kevin may face health challenges as the result of all the marital turmoil.

Federline is taking the brunt of the couple's marriage woes, but Britney Spears emotional health surely contributed to the Spears, Federline split. Kevin Federline clearly shows emotional maturity, saying, "There's nothing more that I want than for her to be in the best health and doing what she loves to do." However, experts agree, better health comes from happy marriages.


Britney Spears has not displayed optimal emotional health, but Kevin Federline still seems open to making things work. In an interview with People magazine, Federline said, "I was trying to work stuff out with her, and she didn't even talk to me or anything and went behind my back and filed for divorce. I was completely blindsided." Despite the adversity Federline has faced in dealing with Britney Spears emotional health, he remains a constant in caring for his children – not so with Britney Spears.

No marriage is perfect. According to the University of Maryland, couples succeed when people "are satisfied with the amount of affection demonstrated in their relationship". It is obvious that neither Britney Spears nor Kevin Federline were satisfied. Their divorce is newsworthy, because we can all relate to marital struggles that can affect physical health.
