Re: If one partner refuses therapy, what does it mean?
My H reluctantly went to two MC sessions with me at my bidding...the aftermath after each was awful. After the first one he broke down and act completely devastated and scared that I would leave him if he didn't "do better" even if he really tried, then the next time he got angry and said the therapist was worthless, and he doesn't subscribe to the pop psychology psychobabble about feelings and compromise. Then he said therapy is expensive and if I wanted to drag him somewhere just to make him feel like crap, we can stay home and do that for free. He refuses to go back. He refuses to "let" me go on my own. He refuses to discuss our problems anymore. He believes our problems are a product of my imagination and/or desire to dwell on the negatives and refusal to see the good.
