Couples may reconcile after divorce, but that doesn’t mean issues don’t come up. Here is a Q&A exploring some of those issues.
Nancy wrote to me asking the following question:
“My husband and I were married for fifteen years. Divorced. Reconciled after nine months and remarried. I am having second thoughts about the reconciliation and I’ve become introverted with no desire to communicate or be close. I feel very protective of my personal affairs and feelings. The more he pushes, the farther away I remove myself from the relationship. I feel the relationship is severely co-dependent. How do we break the co-dependency? What steps can I take to figure out why my need to protect is so extreme?”
