As Dr. Paradise began to dig into their relationship, he asked how they met and what first attracted them to each other. Dr. Paradise quickly realized food was a big part of their relationship. So, he urged them to stop eating together and find other ways to bond.

The therapist shifted the conversation a bit and asked what their intimate relationship was like. Amber seemed to shrug off the question before noting that an intimate relationship didn’t really exist between them. Dr. Paradise noted that she seemed to be shut off to the idea of being intimate with her husband and had just accepted it couldn’t happen. Nathan, however, admitted that he wasn’t alright with the current situation and he wanted to be intimate with his wife.
