In this episode, we discuss a heartbreaking situation where a husband has left his wife multiple times, even after the birth of their child and their baby's stay in the NICU. The wife is in emotional pain and confusion as to why her husband explodes in anger or runs away so much, despite being wonderful about 90% of the time. We delve into the principle that anger is based on pain and explore the possible reasons behind the husband's behavior. Dr. Joe recommends seeking professional counseling and leveraging the Emotionally Focused Therapy approach to address the husband's abandonment and control issues. The discussion also touches on setting boundaries and taking necessary steps to ensure safety in cases where there is physical, intellectual, emotional, or spiritual danger. If you or anyone you know is going through a similar situation, this episode may offer some insights and guidance on how to cope with abandonment and anger in a marriage.
