One of our live callers asks: How can I respond to my wife? She is in an affair, but when she speaks with me, she seems confused. These are the conflicting messages I hear:
-She says I’m perfect.
-She wonders how she can heal while spending time with me.
-She says that she is not capable of loving anyone.
In response to this caller, Dr. Joe Beam explains the importance of listening. Dr. Joe Beam also clarifies what our Marriage Coaches teach: to not do anything that makes the other person feel manipulated, controlled, or pressured.

With this in mind, Dr. Joe Beam says it’s also okay for this caller to be honest about his feelings. For example, saying, “I understand how you feel, I accept how you feel, and I hope someday you may feel that about me.”
When you have these conversations, consistency is key. Over time, being consistent shows your spouse that you have made lasting changes; you are a safe place.
