Christine Blasey Ford and the art of conjecture

Putting aside all that has been, and can be, said about the obvious and crude attempt by the democrats to derail the Kavanaugh nomination, there is one point that I haven't seen made anywhere.

There are two indisputable facts: (1) Apparently after many years of silence, Dr. Ford told some version of her story (2) while in "couple therapy," a euphemism for psychiatric or psychological counseling for two people in a personal relationship.

Why the story then, after decades, and why in that setting?

Was it to avoid admitting something else about herself that she was unwilling to reveal, using Judge Kavanaugh's alleged misdeed as cover?

It's also interesting that everyone seems to accept the premise that the accusation describes an actual event.
