Completely emasculated and isolated

by Sampath Parthasarathy

Financially secure and wealthy. After wife's death remarried fearing loneliness. The current wife of 5 years has completely isolated me, treats me like an idiot (I have a PhD and a MBA), she can't wait to leave home everyday to see and be with her friends, doesn't do any household chores (cleaning, taking care of dog, cooking-never cooked in her life). Blames me for everything. Flirts with younger men. I have lost all the will and desire to live.My second marriage after the death of my wife. This is her 3rd marriage. I am number 43 (!) in her life and puts everyone ahead. She shops and shops and returns and returns. No sense of finance, although she has a MBA and a CPA credentials.

I am so sad and depressed; don't know what top do

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
