Impact of Intimacy Anorexia on Marriages Examined at Lifetree Café
A glimpse into marriages suffering from Intimacy Anorexia will be shown at Lifetree Café on Wednesday, April 10 from 6:30-7:30pm.
The program, titled “Intimacy Anorexia: The Dark Secret That’s Killing Marriages,” features a filmed interview with Dr. Douglas Weiss, a licensed psychologist and an expert in the field of Intimacy Anorexia.
Weiss explains Intimacy Anorexia is the intentional withholding of emotional, spiritual, and sexual intimacy from one’s spouse and is a condition that affects both men and women.
“A common symptom is being married to someone, but feeling like you have a roommate more than a spouse,” he says. “If you feel married and alone, you’re probably married to someone with intimacy anorexia.”
Lifetree participants will learn the common symptoms of Intimacy Anorexia as well as practical treatment options.
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located at the Bachwell Center, 116 N. Washington Street, Van Wert, OH. Please enter on Court Street and park behind the Courthouse.
