One of my clients called yesterday and said: I dont know what to do. My husband lost his job and is depressed. I still have mine and am feelng good… so far. If he is out of work too long, we will start to fall into debt. Then not only will I not feel good, I am afraid I will start to resent him and go into attack mode, ruining the marriage.

The above story is happening all over. As part of a unit, you sometimes have no control over what affects your life. I told my client to have a long talk with her husband and tell him her fears. Then ask him what they can do about it together. My client decided that so long as her husband was trying to get a job, she was not going to resent him. If he stayed depressed though and got really stuck, she was going to insist that he go to therapy.

Are you ready for the inevitable crisis when your mate gets stuck? Do you know how to deal with it and avoid a marriage crisis?
