Today I’m talking about what to do when your husband tells you, “NOW, I want go to therapy….” after refusing for years and years.
Whoo boy, this is a big one. In fact, it’s more common than you’d think and I have thoughts. SO. MANY. THOUGHTS.
Here’s the scenario:
You’ve been unhappy for a while. Maybe a long-ass while.
You’ve told your husband you’re unhappy.
You’ve asked him to go to therapy with you. Often multiple times. Maybe you’ve begged him to go with you but he’s still said, “No”.
He may even have said, “I’d rather get divorced than go to therapy.”
So you continue to suffer, to make the most of it, to care for yourself and your children, to put on a happy face to the world, all the while suffering inside.
Until one day you just can’t do it anymore. Until one day the switch flips and you JUST.FUCKING.CAN’T.
That’s the day tell him you’re done. And you mean it this time.
And he knows it. He feels it.
And he panics. And he tells you he’ll do anything. He tells you, “Now, I want to go to therapy.”
You cannot fix what’s broken in your marriage on your own. You need help. So today, I am offering some help on this podcast in the way of advice so you know what to do if or when your husband utters those famous words, “Now, I want to go to therapy.”.
Here are just a few of the topics I touch on in this episode:
What to do when your husband says they want to go to couples therapy, after you’ve told him you want a divorce
The credentials and attributes to look for in a good couples’ therapist
Why you feel guilty when you know you’re done and your spouse is pulling every play out of the ‘please don’t go’ book
Listening to and understanding your personal truth
