“50 Shades of Grey,” a best-selling book dubbed "mommy porn" by some, has been credited for spicing up relationships in the bedroom. But it hasn't been good for every relationship. At least not for a 41-year-old British banker who reportedly filed for divorce from her husband after he refused to play out sex scenes from the novel.

So is the book responsible for Fifty Shades of Divorce?

Not according to Kim Bayne, blogger at “Life By Kimmy.” On a segment for HuffPost Live, she told host Abby Huntsman that the story prompted her to revitalize her own marriage after post-partum depression.

“The whole book itself made me look at things a lot differently. Because their relationship is so intense and so intimate, it made me want to revitalize that,” Bayne said. “It made me want to get that back into our marriage.”

Joining Huntsman and Bayne in the conversation were Irina Gonzalez, blogger at "Mamas Latinas" and Dr. Karen Ruskin, a relationship expert.
