Description

They have three kids and their volatile marriage has fallen apart. She still hopes to rebuild. He can't get out of there fast enough. Two weeks before COVID-19 forced New Yorkers to shelter in place, they filed for divorce. Now they feel trapped. If he goes he risks not seeing his kids for weeks. If he stays he worries it will thwart his plans to finally leave. Esther urges them to think about this present time together and not about what kind of future they will have apart.

It was hard to listen to a couple bicker with each other instead of listening to each other and listening to Esther. It seems like they didn't really want counseling but just to unload their feelings. The sessions with couples who actively listened and engaged with the therapist, and where some NEW understanding emerged as a result - these were more emotionally satisfying.
