We kept rolling after Ep. 6 and Clark ended up talking about some ideas that he had for the Addicted to possibly do in the event of a separation to help build some safety and trust for the betrayed spouse. Some spouses choose separation to help provide peace as they heal and it's hard for them to know if the addicted is actually doing recovery work. These are just some ideas he came up with for our unique situation, tailor what you do, to you and your spouse's needs.
