After Beckham Says Marriage To Wife Is Difficult, Expert Speaks, Says They Are No Longer In Love

David Beckham shocked fans earlier this week when he branded his marriage to Victoria difficult.

And now a relationship expert has explained that the frank admission reveals the couple are no longer "in love".

Instead the Beckhams have reached a "calmer and deeper" stage in their relationship after nearly 20 years of marriage.

“I think marriage, marriage is always about hard work,” David said in an interview with Australian TV show The Sunday Project.

“You know your children — they want your time and they deserve your time, and difficult situations like travelling away, being away from each other you know, you make it work.”

"Maybe David’s turn of phrase was not as tactful as it might have been, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with admitting that marriage can be hard work," Dr Becky Spelman - psychologist and We-Vibe’s Relationship expert told Mirror Online.

"In fact, every successful marriage is hard work, and that’s what makes it successful!

"Research shows that the period of being 'in love' rarely lasts for more than two or three years.

"Throughout that period, we typically think our partner is the most wonderful person in the world, we’re always ready to make love, and we still get excited at the prospect of seeing them at the end of a day apart.

"With time, this heady, passionate love starts to change. This is inevitable.

"Living in close quarters with someone, seeing them at their worst as well as their best, dealing with the daily challenges of life, and the simple passage of time all come together to reveal our loved one’s feet of clay. This is where the hard work comes in.

"Over time, the initial passionate love that a couple typically feels at the outset of their relationship can mature into a calmer, deeper, and even more profound emotion, the expert claims.
