In an interview with people, Robach said-

"This was not something I would wish on anyone's marriage, but I think it was especially hard on a newer marriage. All of a sudden I felt like I needed him in a very needy way, and that's not my personality," she says. "When I had my crisis I completely crumbled. It threw everything up in the air. It was rough for several months."
