I don't have a huge problem with those sentences either. I think the first one quoted didn't have the word YET at the end which was cleared up later.
When your marriage has been turn upside down some people need time to process and calmly gain prospective without constant emotional back and forth of opposing view points.
My wife and I saw a marriage counselor and we had joint sessions and individual sessions if she asked me what I discussed I'd usually had no problems telling her because I thought that was the point ...however she rarely would do the same to her that was private. Not sure that's a core issue of her's or ours or just a preference.
