‘This Family Is So Dysfunctional As To Be Criminal,’ Dr. Phil Tells Guests
Betty and Philip say that after 25 years of marriage, their relationship hit a slump, so they decided to have an open marriage to spice things up. Now, Betty is in a relationship with another man and says when her divorce is final, she’s going to marry him. Philip says he wants Betty to give him a chance and work on their relationship.
Two of their nine children say their parents’ relationship is toxic and that it seems like they’re not interested in being parents any longer.
Dr. Phil doesn’t mince words with Betty and Philip.
“This family is so dysfunctional as to be criminal,” Dr. Phil says. “You are trying to have your cake and eat it too. You’re trying to maintain some semblance of adherence to these vows you made, this contract before God, and still go out and do what you want to do. That’s absurd.”
