    Good program. My heart went out to the young single mom who needed help coping. I heard the tears in Jason’s voice when he connected with the brink of a breakdown in his own wife. You are so good, Jason.

    The advice given to the second caller bothered me quite a bit. It looks like his wife is not only walking away but is also having an affair with another woman. Why in the world should he wait patiently while his wife “sorts it out” in her head. Too much leeway and concern is being given to his wife and not enough for the husband.

      I agree with Matt. It seems the reason given was caller’s young age …. The advice should be on principal, not age.
