Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy decided to separate at the recommendation of Bethenny’s therapist, according to insiders. Radar Online claims the ultimate goal of a separation is to try to heal the relationship. A source close to the situation said:
“Bethenny was adamantly against formally separating from Jason because she viewed it as giving up on the marriage, and she just isn’t ready to do that. It was her therapist that recommended the trial separation to give the couple some breathing room, and experience life without each other on a daily basis.
“Bethenny and Jason have been having the same arguments for a very long time, she thinks he is too critical of her, and he thinks his wife is can be a control freak. The one thing they both agree on is that their 2-year-old daughter Bryn will not be adversely affected by this break. Bethenny and Bryn will remain in the apartment and Jason can spend as much time as he wants with her. Jason is a devoted dad, and Bethenny recognizes that.”
That makes sense. If they’re arguing constantly, then some time apart may give them some time to really calm down, without getting riled up again, so they can then work on the issues that lead to the ongoing fighting. Things happened so fast for those two in terms of Bethenny getting pregnant and their decision to get married. They didn’t have a chance to really get to know each other.
