Dr Phil: Should Andy & Sue Divorce?
Andy and Sue want guidance from Dr Phil. Their relationship is clearly toxic. Sue is afraid of disappointing Andy. She doesn’t want to provoke his anger and Andy doesn’t understand why Sue can’t be a better wife. Sue wants Dr Phil to make her a better wife because she believes she is a horrible person. Dr Phil’s advice for this couple should be to split up. I can’t see how they should stay together.

Dr Phil: Interview With Sue & Andy
Sue is noticeably afraid of Andy. During an interview before the show, Andy and Sue were talking and Sue began to withdraw physically. Dr Phil was concerned about how Sue made herself smaller when sitting with Andy. Andy said he doesn’t understand why Sue does this. Sue said it’s because she is scared of Andy being mad at her.
Dr Phil said this is all anxiety, depression, withdrawal and disassociation. He said that when they notice this all happening they cope with alcohol. Sue said it’s been worse since 2006 when they tried to divorce.
Dr Phil: Sue’s Tone Of Voice
Sue’s behavior is very confusing. She went from shrinking back into her seat to yelling in five seconds. Andy was being rude and said that he didn’t understand how Sue couldn’t hear herself. He wanted Sue to change her tone of voice, and Sue decided to show him how he yells at her. I’m not clear on how a woman can go from this afraid of her man to bold and yelling in no time.
