Dr Phil: Kayla & Travis Domestic Violence
Travis slaps his wife Kayla because he said she is a nag and a “lump on a log.” Travis said he doesn’t think there is ever a reason to slap his wife, but he’s the exception to the rule. Kayla said she loves her husband and the father of her child.
Travis told Dr Phil that his number one fear is his son calling another man “dad.” He hasn’t left Kayla because of their son. He has instead slept around with a woman he met in a casino.
Dr Phil: Travis Cheating On Kayla
Dr Phil told Kayla that if she doesn’t do something about the violence and just accepts it, then she doesn’t love herself enough. Kayla wants Travis to change.
Travis complained that Kayla doesn’t let him relax. He has a very strenuous job pouring iron and wants to relax when he comes home. He instead meets a nagging wife at the door. Dr Phil caught him in his own words. If he wants to relax, why does he go and fool around with strange women at the casino?
Dr Phil: Relationship Rescue
Dr Phil believes that marriage is a partnership. He said he thinks that no one ever taught Travis how to act as a parent or husband. He told Travis straight up that there is no reason to ever hit your wife. It is a criminal act.
He told the couple that they either need to sort out their problems or break up. He offered to set up counseling for them. Travis was more concerned that he can’t miss work for the treatment. He said he has Thursdays off, so he can do Thursdays.
