Today we discuss husbands who are abused or betrayed by their wives, and look at the 10 KEY TAKEAWAYS. We’ll hear these men’s first-person stories.
If you’re a woman who thought this could never happen, think again. If you’re a man who believes this could never happen to smart successful men, not true. If you think it could only happen to a man from a dysfunctional home, wake up. GOOD NEWS! These men all found excellent counseling, their destructive marriages ended, and all are very happily remarried today.
