I caught a re-run last night of a Dr. Phil show that was about emotional affairs titled "Affairs of the Heart."
The couple has been married for about 12 years and she has had multiple EAs, including one with a psychiatric patient she was caring for and she got fired. The husband found out about all of this and it's a major problem for them as it seems she doesn't stop, it's affecting their kids.
Dr. Phil told her she had to stop being "emotionally promiscuous" and either commit to her marriage to stop.
He told the husband "The good news is this is not about you. The bad news is this is not about you."
He told the husband that eventually, if she didn't stop or change behaviors, he had to be willing to walk away and protect their children.
The husband said he's not a "quitter" and would "fight for his marriage."
And it made me think... Dr. Phil is right... if she won't stop, he either has to live w/ it or walk.
Just something to think about.
