    Bless you for stepping out on the edge with airing of these questions.

  2. Dear Jeff, now this is a twist, the majority of affairs are usually men but we should never be deceived because women have affairs and issues as well. You guys have been married for a very long time and she’s been having an affair for a very long time and you seem to be okay with that, no wonder she continues to go back and forth. I’m sorry you’re going through this but Jeff, please get some counseling for yourself to help you better decide and know that what your wife is doing is not right, she is disrespecting you and using you like a tool. I pray things change for the better for both of you, if not please make things change for you. AND FOR THE RECORD, YOU ARE NOT STUCK…

  3. I am appalled at SOME of the advice the show gave to Jeff today, the guy that’s been married for 20 years and his wife has had and is having an affair for over 5 years. I mean, really. If counseling doesn’t help this time it means that your wife is not ready for change and does not want change which means you need to move forward with the divorce and your life. She’s fully aware of what she’s doing and she’s using you (husband) as a crutch and excuse to continue getting her pleasures fulfilled. So not right. Please work on counseling and after this attempt, please get on with your life.

    • I agree. The advice given to Jeff was weak. I believe they should have questioned his desire to remain in this hurtful relationship. Seems to me the problem is somewhere there in his inability to take action. The woman has declared her position in the marriage. The counselors would have blasted a man as unloving for doing this type of thing. Definitely went easy on the cheating wife. Jeff needs to step up his man card and move on with his life.

  4. I will be honest.. it annoyed me to see so much time spent on talking about possible motivations, hurts, emotions of the woman who was consistently cheating, as if she was some vulnerable and helpless victim. I don’t know what the caller may have felt on the other side of the line, when there was so much empathizing and sympathizing of his wife who he thought may have been cheating. This would not have happened with a man who was cheating, the hosts would have been quick to brand the man characterless and lacking in integrity.

    Funny thing is, if Dr Jill & Dr Sherri were on the show, they would have been much more tougher as opposed Milan & Dave.

    • It sounds she doesn’t want to be tied down anymore, and is going through a second childhood. She probably feels apathy with nothing left in life to look forward to. Jeff didn’t sound like much fun, as I felt by his monotone voice. She probably is chomping at the bit to have fun. If he is the stern boring father type, it’s no wonder she is restless.
