He's mad at you!?!? I'd get out of that relationship quick if he doesn't stop trying to make you feel bad for needing to talk to those you can trust.
To the suffering marriage partner: You just got yourself more wisdom from this therapist, in one response, than you might in seeing someone less qualified for an entire year. Take his advice to heart.
I appreciate your advice and agree with it. I've had multiple friends who were given the advice to not talk to anyone about their marriage struggles and they suffered in pain and silence while trying to pick up the pieces of the aftermath of shattered covenants, or wondered how to proceed with a difficult situation. I think women aspecially need emotional support often times from other women who understand and you described perfectly what I feel is most helpful carefully sharing with a select person or group who is emotionally safe and healthy. I think this advice could've helped a few that I know of not feel so alone in trying to navigate the emotional rapids of a difficult time in their marriage and help them find clarity instead of confusion and lesson their feeling of abandonment.
