My Husband Has Left The Bedroom


Summary: In this episode Neil responds to a woman who is at a loss about what to do to get her husband to engage. He won’t initiate conversation, no longer sleeps in the bedroom, and will follow instructions, but that is unsatisfying. Neil goes back in time to imagine how the relationship began and how it became so disengaged. Neil anticipates that this is causing serious emotional problems for this woman and advises her to focus on her own mental health prior to trying to understand and make sense of the marriage. Neil challenges listeners to see how their attempts to solve relationship problems can often be part and parcel to the problem itself. Have a question for Neil?
