Greg and his spouse Kai attempted to go to Marriage Counseling after they briefly broke up in early 2016.

Events

Greg first mentioned marriage counseling in his "I Betrayed My Wife" video, uploaded January 26, 2016 to Speaks. In the video, he explains his spouse Kai broke up with him after he told Kai he cuddled and had given a naked full body massage to Kai's girlfriend, Billie, when Kai was not home. At the end of the video, a black screen and white text revealed Greg and Kai were going to therapy together to save their marriage. ($ource)

In an UhOhBro video uploaded two days after uploading "I Betrayed My Wife", Greg included a clip where he talks on speaker phone with a therapist. It seems he received the call while recording the video and left in the beginning and end of his conversation with the therapist.

Afterword, Greg would bring up attending marriage counseling occasionally in videos. An example of this was in his where he took a personality type test, mistaking it for a personality disorder test. At the end of the video, he says he probably does not have a personality disorder because when he and Kai went to counseling, the therapist did not bring up that he might have a personality disorder.

On July 31, 2016, Greg and Kai uploaded "After Our Near-Divorce Experience (Onision & Laineybot)" to Kai's channel. Greg announces he and Kai went to marriage counseling a few months back. Greg asked Kai what he learned and Kai responded, "that marriage counselor's a [bleep]" and Greg responded "woah". Greg says he felt like he learned to open up a little bit more to Kai and Kai said he was glad. When Greg asked Kai if he remembered that, Kai shook his head. When Greg asks if Kai feels like after marriage counseling, their marriage got back to where it was, Kai responded that he felt like it was better. Greg asks if Kai means their marriage is better than ever and Kai responds, "yes, but not due to marriage counseling." Greg says they are making this video to share their experience because he once heard a comedian say if you're going to marriage counseling, you're relationship is already over or someone dies. He says they think that's funny because it's not over until you say it's over. Greg reveals after their second counseling session, they realized this lady was not going to help them and they would accomplish more by talking to each other. Greg credits counseling with "getting the conversation rolling, then we were good to go." He says now they are more open and blunt with each other. (Source)

In the December 2016 LaineyBot video "Will Our Marriage Survive?", Kai makes a comment that their counselor told them to listen respectfully when they disagree with each other, but says they didn't do it. ($ource)
