When Arthur contacted us at , he was perplexed about his wife of 27 years whose personality had changed, her marital demeanor had changed, her sexual needs seemed to require more of an aggressive manner and her choice of provocative clothing was different than her previously conservative nature. She was currently the breadwinner; he was the stay-at-home husband for the last three years taking care of their five children, two of whom were in college and the other three in high school.

Bob* and Meredith* had only been married for a year. While they were dating, Bob had been very sweet and attentive toward Meredith. But after their marriage, Bob was becoming more overbearing.
