Good Mom, Bad Wife? Bloggers Weigh In On HuffPost Live (VIDEO)

Do good moms make bad wives?

That's the touchy question HuffPost blogger Jackie Morgan asked in a recent blog post about a newly divorced mom she knows who went above and beyond for her kids, to the detriment of her marriage. In a segment last week on HuffPost Live, Morgan elaborated on the good mom, bad wife dichotomy:

"I think sometimes moms can get so self important, like 'The kids can't live without me, they can't function without me... and I have to be perfect and this other mom has to see me as being just as wonderful as she is,' and the marriage or the relationship suffers," Morgan said.
