In a world where women often unwind with girlfriends, sharing stories over coffee, and connecting emotionally, men have their own way of bonding—shared experiences and activities like watching sports. So, when a wife or long-term partner suddenly suggests, “Let’s try couples or family therapy. Something’s not right,” it can catch men off guard as if the stable ground beneath them has shifted. Family life seemed fine until it wasn’t. While some courageous couples seek therapy, many end up parting ways with divorce papers or entering new relationships, hoping for a change.
