Another friend said that while Liam supported Miley in her career and loves that she is her own independent person, he also struggled with their unconventional marriage. "There's a bit of him who wants a housewife," the source said. “He loves that she has her own career and focus, but he also wants a wife who cooks and would stay home with the kids.”
Last month, Miley opened up about her 'unique' marriage to ELLE USA saying, "do people really think that I'm at home in a fucking apron cooking dinner?"
"I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married. But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in a place where people would get it. I mean, do people really think that I’m at home in a fucking apron cooking dinner? I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women," she said at the time. "People become vegetarian for health reasons, but bacon is still fucking good, and I know that. I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most. I definitely don’t fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don’t even like that word."
As for Miley's new relationship? A further source told People that Miley's 'fling' with Kaitlynn is her trying "to push Liam's buttons, whether she'll admit it or not," but that it's because she's "hurt."
