This episode tackles three relationship questions. The first one is about a new empty nester who is experiencing relationship issues. Even when the kids were still there, the wife was distant and disinterested, and suggesting counseling would only push her away. The video suggests that the wife may be questioning her value and identity as a mother, and it is important for the husband to be patient and understanding, listen to her, and find something that they can focus on together that would make her feel valuable again.
The second question is about a woman who cheated on her husband and has been back in the marriage for eight months but doesn't feel in love with him anymore. The video says that it is possible to love her husband again, but she needs to be careful not to measure it against the same level of excitement and sexual exhilaration she had with the other person. The video explains the scientific viewpoint of love and suggests that what she may be lacking is the feeling of passion, which is a craving for oneness. The video advises her to focus on building intimacy, commitment, and passion with her husband.
The last question is about the Marriage Helper workshop. This person asks if they should try to fix issues in their marriage before they attend the workshop. Dr. Beam explains that it is best to keep things light until they attend the workshop where we can help guide them through each specific issue and provide the tools to start rebuilding the marriage.
