Communicating that you might need space was one of the topics on the table for discussion.  

“If you’re just seeking more space in your relationship I think one of the bigger mistakes we often make is that we express what we want but we don’t explain why we want it,” Shetty said. “If you just go up to your partner and say, ‘I want space’ or ‘I need space,’ they don’t know why you want it and so now they’re confused, now they’re filling the text of going, ‘Oh maybe he or she doesn’t like me.”

Pinkett-Smith soon chimed in to respond saying, “I think that’s true because if you say to somebody, ‘I need space,’ sometimes that’s a trigger for one step towards divorce. And it doesn’t necessarily mean that. It just means, ‘Hey I need two hours, please.” 

Red Table Talk airs on Wednesdays on Facebook Watch at 12 p.m. EST.
