On this episode of Marriage Helper Live, Dr. Joe Beam and Kimberly Holmes respond to calls from Canada & New Zealand & MORE!

  • "We're divorced, but still best friends. At what length of time do you give up?"
  • "I just learned that my wife spent the weekend with my friend, and my son was there. How do I tell my wife that it isn't acceptable for her to do this with my son? She doesn't know that I know..."
  • "If you suspect your spouse is having an affair, at what point do you approach them about it?"

It’s important to know whether your spouse is having an affair versus other problematic behaviors. i.e.: Thinking it's an affair, when it's actually a ography addiction.

  • "My husband is in an affair with an old high school girlfriend. When he's drunk, he exposes the issues with his affair partner, and gets mad at her. Should I attempt this intervention? Or should I put up with his drinking."

Drinking is a dangerous habit. We do not advise that she lets it continue. 

  • “My wife denies her emotional affair. How can I get her to confess it?”

  • “Why does my husband reach out to me and then back off?”

On this episode, you'll also hear:

  • If your spouse is in a limerent/emotional affair, logic is the last thing that will work. Every time you try to combat emotion w/logic, logic will win every time.

  • If you made a decision you regret- know that what you did is what you did. Looking back at "should haves" doesn't benefit you in any way.

  • And, what if you're divorced? Don't let your status define what you believe in/what your hope is.
