Shubhangi Atre on separation from husband
The Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai fame said that her husband and she tried a lot to save their marriage. However, despite all efforts, they couldn’t sort out their differences, Atre said. She said she and Peeyush have decided to focus on our individuals lives and work.
Speaking with the Times of India, Shubhangi said, “We have not been living together for more than a year. I understand mutual respect, trust, companionship, and friendship are essential for a strong marriage. We gave each other space after things didn’t work out and we decided to focus on our individual lives and work.”
The Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai fame remains on cordial terms
Shubhangi revealed that she continues to remain on cordial terms with her husband because of their 18-year-old daughter. The actress shared that her family has been her priority always. She said, “My family is my top priority, and all of us want our families around us. But some damages are beyond repair.”
Atre continued, “When a relationship of so many years breaks, it’s bound to affect you mentally and emotionally. I was also affected, but we had to take this step, and I have come to terms with it. Mental stability is paramount. I have always believed that adversities teach you a lesson. She (her daughter) deserved love from both her mother and father. Piyush comes on Sundays to meet her. I don’t want her to be deprived of her father’s love.”
For the unversed, Shubhangi and Peeyush got married in 2003 in their hometown, Indore. The estranged couple are parents to a young daughter, Ashi.
