In your opinion what seem to be the real issue? Review questions and discuss within the group. Akbar and Sajda came to me for counseling. Their first comment was please help us save our marriage.
We think we have come to a road block. Both of us want to stay together but the arguments are becoming unbearable. Both Akbar and Sajda are professional and between the two make over quarter of a million dollars per year.
Both are financially independent and pitch in on a percentage basis in the home expenses. They maintain their own bank account as they felt there was no need for a joint account. I realized that there is something else that they are keeping from me.
I decided to talk to them individually instead of as a couple. My next session was with the wife and she once again talked about the issues that we had discussed before. She went on and on with all the life problems and how she has struggled to reach this status.
She has seen tough time growing up and had to support herself and siblings. Her father had anger issues and was not supportive of their mother or children. That resulted her being very protective of what is hers and did not trust anyone including her husband Akbar.
When she told him about the dream, he according to him jokingly said that he was and he is seriously thinking about a second wife and that he is seeing someone. That flared Sajda so much that they have not talked to each other with a straight face for months now.
The husband assured me that he loves his wife and that was only a joke. I also found out that despite the fact that they were only married for two and half years their marital relations were not healthy. According to her she allows him to have the marital relation but she is frigid and shows no response or emotions to his approach or during the course.
Her mind wonders about all the negativity and bad things that have happened in the past and presently between them. He on the other hand was a passive person, especially when it came to defending his wife.
His family members would take a jab at his wife, or pass negative remarks towards her and he always would ignore saying they are just joking. That time and time again would bring back horrible memories to Sajda of her childhood the treatment of her father toward her mother.
How can they resolve their marital issues? What is your advice for the Sajda? What is your advice for the Akbar?
What are the real issues?
Can their marriage survive without loving marital relationship between them? How can they bring sparkle in their marriage?Case Studies Case Study I.
