5:20 This show features two emails Dr. Marty got during the last week.
7:38 We start with the first letter, from a woman who is very upset about her husband leaving her. After that, we have another letter from a woman who thinks her husband might be cheating on her.
8:50 We hear from the first woman’s letter. She has signed her letter “Worried”. Her husband is walking out of their marriage after 20 years. She asks about the “crossroads stage” – something she read about on YourMarriageCounselor.com, and how it relates to her situation.
10:20 We talk briefly about a “date formula” for successful conversation.
10:53 We return to the letter, and learn that the woman believes she and her husband are bored in their marriage. She believes her husband has emotionally withdrawn, may feel lost, or is in a mid-life crisis.
11:47 We hear Dr. Marty’s response to “Worried”. We hear three clear suggestions on what to do in this situation.
21.50 Dr. Marty talks about the second letter. “Marie” is worried her husband may be having an affair. Dr. Marty talks at length of the dynamic of how an affair starts, and what kinds of danger signs a partner can look out for, and when a person may need a wake up call about the status of their relationship.
