    Knowing When To Leave

    Knowing When To Leave

    If your spouse gets mad and storms out because you don't want to have sex when they have COVID and you don't, is it time to leave? How hard is it to leave when you know you should? For many of us, it's one of the hardest things we've ever done. And so it is with Sven's two guests in this week's counseling episode. Lindsey has been tolerating spousal abuse for years, echoes of her childhood home life. She has come to realize that she has "...a past that doesn't fit my future." In a bizarre story, Megan has moved in with her boyfriend but finds that his ex controls every aspect of his life, using their children to manipulate and abuse him. Megan has tried to help to no avail, and says, "I'm the last person on his list." So far, both these women have decided to stay. Sven helps them face the reality of their situations with compassion and understanding. Explicit content.
