In the most recent episode of Bethenny Ever After, we see a crisis looming. Bethenny has virtually no help and is in the throes of chaos. She’s trying to manage her growing brand, participate in and manage the remodeling of her new apartment and trying to help her husband find his place in the world.
It’s an extremely difficult place for the pair of them.
Like all men, Jason is struggling with his identity as a man, since most men are closely aligned with “what they do” for a living, he is somewhat directionless. He hasn’t had enough success in his career to continue doing it and he is feeling a bit emasculated because of the great success Bethenny has had with her business.
In an ordinary husband/wife situation, the husband and wife would simply work as a team, each handling tasks to which they are most well suited. In this case, however, Bethenny is the brand and it’s not a joint venture. Because the brand is built entirely upon who she is and her outlook, Jason would have to be relegated to a junior position to Bethenny.
Ouch. What is a man to do?
I’m sure every wife can relate to his issues and I am equally sure that every woman would be advising Bethenny to not bring Jason into the business because of their rather tenuous situation.
Could Jason working with Bethenny at this difficult time in their marriage possibly be good for them?
Good question. What are your thoughts?a
We’ll see what happens, won’t we?
