I was drawn to this episode because author and psychotherapist Esther Perel’s TED Talk is truly amazing. This interview with her is equally interesting.

Podcast: Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People (Episode 10)

What a fantastic story! There’s so much depth to it. What a great guy, father, and husband. My feelings shifted between being convinced his wife had a lover and believing she was simply done being physical with her husband. If she’s open to couples therapy, they should just go ahead and try it on. Try just one session as it could be the catalyst for opening the lines of communication, which is obviously what is lacking here. And wife, one piece of advice…watch the TED talk below and follow the Nike philosophy –  Just do it!
