According to a relationship expert, Melania and Donald Trump may have been living separate lives "for many years now.”
The Trumps have been the subject of divorce speculations for some time.
Melania did not attend the Super Bowl party this year, which further fueled the divorce speculations.
Relationship experts believe that Melania and Donald may be living separate lives, with Melania seeing her official public role over as she begins to make the "life she wants."
Pascale Lane, a Therapeutic Relationship and Life Coach, founder of the Surviving to Thriving program and author of How to be Happy in Life and Love: A guide to living the life you Deserve told the Daily Star: "The marriage of Donald and Melania Trump is one which has been widely documented over the years and has been the source of many debates. Is she in-it just for the money or is there a connection there which we are not privy to?”
"Ever since his inauguration back in January 2017, speculation has been rife about the state of their marriage and whether this is one of business or love,” she continued. "Melania certainly has had her fair share of unhappy looking pictures and given the press coverage of her husband's attitude towards women, (let alone everything else), it's little wonder she is snapped looking underwhelmed."
"My guess would be that divorcing a man like Donald Trump would leave Melania without the opulent lifestyle she is accustomed to. Let's not forget that she married this man in 2005; their history goes considerably further back than his presidency. There could well be an opportunity now for her to say she has 'done her bit' but I suspect Melania is one lady who does her own thing in her own way, regardless of the status of her husband. I would presume they have led separate lives for many years now,” she added.
Emma Davey, Relationship Expert and Founder of MyTraumaTherapy.co.uk, told Daily Star: “Most people understand that being in a relationship where you’re not happy, where you have no control, is a very lonely place to be.”
"We have all seen the way Donald Trump has addressed the world with his one-sided views and questionable decisions. He shows many narcissistic traits, such as always wanting to be in control, having a very God-like persona, always having to be right and not listening to the opinions of others - even when they’re leading experts,” she said.
“Being in a relationship with someone who has narcissistic traits like this can be very exhausting and has a huge impact on your mental and physical health. While no one knows what’s gone on in their relationship, other than the couple, the time may have come for Melania to take back control and start living the life she wants,” Davey added. "We might start to see the pair living very separate lives in the near future.”
