I certainly hope that the therapist/doctor is not telling her that...in the sense that they shouldn't be telling her that anything specific is the cause. More specifically...others have told me that my wife states to them that her depression is caused by me being polyamorous. She doesn't say this to my face...instead she just says that is going through her "own stuff"...that she loves me more than anything...but, in reality, treats me poorly.
BTW - thank you for your response! I appreciate your support.
