#3 says most men are unable to seek help because of shame, yet #4 says to insist that your husband enter the program. How can I insist, or convince my husband to get help if he refuses?

    Hi Anon,
    This is a great question. One of the things that a wife must do to heal from Betrayal Trauma is learn how to set appropriate boundaries, one of which may be that the spouse needs to be doing recovery work. Check out our Bloom for Catholic Women program online and join our Integrity Restored (wives) Facebook group for help in doing that.
    May God bless your journey,
