Em Rusciano admits that she and husband Scott Barrow have been 'struggling' with their marriage

Australian comedian Em Rusciano has admitted that she and husband Scott Barrow have been ‘struggling’ with their marriage in recent weeks. 

The 40-year-old former radio host took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a sweet snap of herself with motivational speaker Scott, admitting that they’ve been seeing a counsellor. 

In a lengthy post, Em said that the pair sat down with their counsellor and admitted that they weren’t ‘happy,’ but have been trying to work through their issues and are now in a better place.

She shared a snap of herself with Scott, saying that the snap ‘would not have happened a week ago, Scotty and I always struggle in December.’

‘We had to sit down last week and hash it out, we sat opposite each other and said (with our counsellor in the room) “I’m not happy at the moment and this is what I need from you to make things better for me.”

Detailing their issues, Em said that she wanted him to listen more, while Scott wanted her to not react right off the bat.

‘I needed him to listen and not solve, he needed me to not react straight away to things he said that annoyed me (which was every second word..!).’

Assuring fans that they’re now okay and ‘good,’ Em admitted that relationships take work.  

‘Relationships are hard, that doesn't get said enough. Get help if you need it, and everyone does – at some point in time – need help.’

‘Both of us make a living encouraging others to look after themselves, be brave and do good s**t, so we’d be massive hypocrites if we didn’t apply the same principles to our marriage.’

She finished by telling fans to be nicer to their partners and loved ones over the festive season. 

One fan praised the refreshingly honest post and wrote: ‘And here I thought we were just being our usual dysfunctional selves… good to know others are doing the exact same thing, thank Em much needed reminder.’

The pair have been married for 19 years. Last year, Em admitted that her marriage was once ‘broken’ and ‘completely unfixable.’

After David Beckham said on The Sunday Project that his marriage to Victoria Beckham was ‘hard work,’ Em posted to Instagram to say she agreed with what he was saying. 

‘I agree with @davidbeckham long-term relationships are bloody hard work and let’s not pretend otherwise,’ she captioned it.

‘Saying it out loud isn’t disloyal or wrong – it’s freeing and helps other couples!’

‘Personally my relationship goes from total love and adoration to silently rage whispering “go f**k yourself” in the blink of an eye. Doesn’t yours?!’

In an accompanying blog post, Em – who shares three children with Scott – said that the pair went their ‘separate ways’ a few years ago, claiming they were ‘done.’ 

‘We were broken and I thought completely unfixable. Then after a year apart we decided to work on our relationship and managed to put the pieces back together,’ she wrote.

‘It’s not perfect, but it’s getting there; ultimately we are stronger together, and making something strong usually takes, say it with me, oh yeah you know what’s coming: Hard. Work.’

Em said it’s actually refreshing to know other seemingly perfect couples are struggling too.
