Name me a time when it wasn't because I'm at a loss. If you're gonna name Billy Jean and Larry Statton, I disagree. That was psychical trauma, stress on the body.

Or a concern that it was a setback to his success in keeping the marriage in tact.

It is a slight possibility but I personally disagree. It was always pretty clear when he was mind merging.
