EastEnders spoilers – The experts speak out about the Carters’ relationship

In an effort to ferret out what the Carter’s ultimate fate might be, Express.co.uk has asked experts to weigh in on the family drama.

Relationship advisor Nia Williams said she doesn’t see a bright future ahead for Mick and Linda. “In 2019 on New Year’s Eve, we watched in horror as Linda’s alcoholism reached its lowest point. The truth is that no matter how much you love someone we all have our personal limits and when a relationship becomes too volatile, humiliating and disrespectful, then love alone cannot hold it together.

Mick has endured some excruciating and embarrassing moments with Linda due to her drink issues. If Linda refuses to change and be honest, open, and respectful to her marriage, it will not be sustainable in the long run because quite simply, love is not enough.”

Martina Mercer, Editor at Sunday Woman Magazine notes, “In the first year during recovery, it’s recommended that addicts don’t start any new relationships or make any big decisions, while addicts are also encouraged to change their lives, saying goodbye to old habits and triggers. Will Linda realise that it’s not the pub that’s a trigger but it’s actually Mick? They’ve been together since childhood, but when Linda delves deeper into her own psych, she may discover that dealing with her marriage, and her insecurities surrounding it is what often turns her to drink.”

Relationship coach from Iphie Mottoh said, “Mick and Linda should be heading for a divorce based on all that they have gone through as a couple. However, Mick and Linda aren’t like other couples. They grew up together, they have been best of friends, there is an intimacy between them.”

“With that type of foundation in love, friendship and intimacy, it would be difficult for either one of them to function without the other and with every storm they have already faced, it would be difficult for their relationship to be shaken to the point of divorce.”
