Intelligent, thoughtful decision making and action taking for people in crisis.
People come to web sites like this because their relationship is in trouble. Usually something major has happened that has caused a marital wake-up call, and all of a sudden one person is searching all over the Internet for answers about what to do. I created this site for people like you.
When your marriage hangs in the balance – usually because one person has expressed extreme unhappiness or confusion, or a crime against the marriage has been committed, such as an affair or inappropriate relationship, it is absolutely crucial that you find good, reliable information and advice. Without it, couples often fend through the crisis themselves, making snap decisions or demands and taking actions that make a bigger mess than already has been made. In these cases the family almost always suffers greatly, and often permanently. I can’t tell you how many couples divorce or separate prematurely mainly because they don’t think they can stay in the marriage and don’t know what else to do. I understand all of this because of a marital crisis I went through in 1992 that ended in divorce. That experience was so profoundly shocking and life changing that it ignited an intense hunger and passion in me to find answers and learn everything I could about marriage troubles, such as:
- How marriages fall apart.
- How to manage fragile marriage crisis situations
- How to deal with the major issues that caused the crisis
- How to stabilize yourself and your family
- How to separate appropriately with a purpose and plan
- How to get you and your spouse on the same page
- Can all marriages be saved – and should they be saved?
- How and when to reconcile
- How to know when divorce is the best decision
- How to move forward in the healthiest way possible in the post-divorce weeks, months and years
After my own experience I became aware that therapists aren’t necessarily knowledgeable about how to manage a marriage crisis. In fact, most are not. As unbelievable as this is, I felt this created an urgent need for easy-to-find, accessible help for couples throughout the nation and world who are stuck and uncertain and fearful about how to move forward.
I have spent years helping thousands of couples through their marriage crisis situations. I am educated, experienced, and have been through marriage crisis myself. I know what works and what does not, and am absolutely certain that I give solid advice and counsel that you can count on. It is my hope, and the purpose of this web site, that you will find all the information that I needed and didn’t find in 1992. Think of this as a library of numerous resources for those in marital crisis all in one place – video, blogs, articles, important links, books, podcasts, advice, and webinars with me where we can talk about what’s going on in your lives and come up with wise solutions -- all containing the information you will need and find helpful during and beyond your marital crisis.
