What is a Married and Alone Group?

Married and Alone Groups serve as safe havens for women navigating the complex and emotionally taxing terrain of being in a relationship with an intimacy anorexic. Intimacy anorexia, much like any addiction, can create a profound sense of isolation and disconnection within a relationship. The term “married and alone” poignantly captures the essence of this experience, where despite being in a committed partnership, one feels emotionally abandoned and disconnected.

Within these support groups, the principles of the 12-step recovery program are applied to the unique dynamics of being a partner of an intimacy anorexic. Participants are guided through a structured process of self-awareness, healing, and empowerment. The 12 steps provide a roadmap for understanding the addictive nature of intimacy anorexia and offer practical tools for recovery. Our groups work through the Married and Alone Book Series by Dr. Doug Weiss.

Members of our Married and Alone Groups find solace in knowing that they are not alone in having others who are also Married and Alone.. They are surrounded by others who share similar experiences and can offer empathy, support, and validation. Through sharing their stories and insights, participants gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics at play in their relationships and find strength in their collective journey toward healing.

These groups provide a platform for healing, education  and empowerment. Participants learn about the behaviors and patterns associated with intimacy anorexia, as well as strategies for setting boundaries, fostering communication, and cultivating intimacy in their relationships. By empowering individuals with knowledge and resources, Married and Alone Groups empower participants to reclaim agency in their relationships and chart a path toward greater emotional connection and fulfillment.
