On this episode of Marriage Helper Live, Dr. Joe Beam responds to:

  • "My wife reacted negatively to this one situation where I did something that appeared controlling. How do I proceed? We've been separated 5 months, and this just happened one week ago."


  • "My husband is hesitant to return home because he doesn't want things to go back to how they were. How can I work on this issue? We've both had affairs."


  • "Is my wife experiencing cognitive dissonance while she's in her affair? She has become mean toward me, and removed herself from our grown children."


  • "My husband seemed to have positive interactions with me, and now all of the sudden, he still wants to go through with mediation- what do I do?"


  • And MORE!
