British relationship expert Andrew Wallas said Kaballah practitioners are likely to be less satisfied in their personal relationships than other couples, Britain’s Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

“All the research is that individuals who have an interest in psychology or spirituality or who practice something like Kaballah (the branch of Jewish mysticism popularized by Madonna) are less likely to have satisfactory relationships,” he said. “A lifetime spent doing self-improvement workshops can just be a case of someone running away from reality.”

Wallas, who married one of his former clients, also believes that an excessively optimistic outlook doesn’t help foster a healthy marriage. The key is to accept your marriage as it is rather than seek some unduly cheerful version of it, he told the Daily Mail.
