If your spouse has broken your trust by having an affair, and especially if they are being uncooperative or ambivalent, it is time for you to stop crying, arguing or pleading with them to step up. Instead, start listening to this indispensable program. Whether it’s your starting point or your last ditch effort, it provides urgent, usable and at times unconventional advice that can pull you off the dead-end path an affair has put you on.

Has your husband said “I love you, but I’m not in love with you?” Is he self-indulgent, unfaithful or manipulative? If so, stop crying, questioning, and analyzing him. Stop assuming he will spontaneously “come around” on his own. Instead, start listening to this essential program. It provides clear and at times unconventional advice to help you manage this turmoil in a way that can regain his love and maintain your dignity.

If you feel like there are three people in your marriage, you need to stop worrying, speculating and having pointless arguments about it. Your spouse isn’t listening, and you’re only increasing the distance between you. Instead, start listening to this one-of-a-kind program. Its intensive guidance and step-by-step approach can help you navigate and overcome this problem before it develops into a full-scale affair.

Has your marriage lost its warmth? Have the interactions between you and your spouse become argumentative? Perhaps your or their unflattering personality traits are taking their toll. Or perhaps you simply feel like your spouse doesn’t see you anymore. This invaluable program can help you bring some passionate color to your fading marriage and show the world that you’re lovers, not fighters! 

An extramarital affair can be just as confusing and painful for the spouse who has made the mistake as it can be for the one who has been betrayed. If you need some insight and strategies to reconnect with your wounded spouse, and you want to understand more about yourself so you can work through your own choices and feelings, this no-nonsense program can help you figure it all out without patronizing or judging you.

Do you obsess about your marriage problems? Do you over-analyze your spouse? Do you let your emotions run the show, even to your own detriment? Of course you do – you’re human! This empowering program can help you get a grip on your thoughts and behaviors, and is often used to support people as they work through one of Debra’s larger programs (eg. Overcoming Infidelity, Conquer His Midlife Crisis).

From the first word to the last, I felt like you reached into the chaos of my marriage, sat me down and said, “Now listen up, sweetheart, this is what you’re going to do.” And yes, that has made a massive change – for the better – in the way my husband treats me and the choices he is making. I truly thank you. – Cara, Troy, AL

phone sessions

Whether you need some fresh insight with regard to your marriage problem, some new ideas to try, or just someone to act as a sounding board, my one-on-one telephone sessions offer a casual and low-stress way to feel like you’re not fighting this battle alone. Conversations are relaxed, and while frank, always as positive as possible. There is no awkward small talk in a stranger’s office, just a friendly chat from the privacy and comfort of your own couch, desk, car or favorite park bench. So grab a good cup of coffee and let’s talk. We’ll get to the heart of the matter as soon as we can. One hour can make a big difference. – Debra Macleod, B.A., LL.B.

 I can’t imagine finding a more forthright or useful course to help a person get through something like this and come out with a stronger marriage. You have a personal yet sometimes forceful tone, and I needed that. Loved the Q&A’s you included from clients, too.  All those little ‘extras’ (the lifelines, What NOT to Do!!!) were so helpful. – Anika, Sacramento, CA


date nights

You’ve worked hard to save your marriage from broken trust, bickering, or even just sheer boredom. Why stop now? Keep the momentum going and the romance alive with regular ideas – from recipes and movie recommendations to surprise gifts and getaways, and everything in between – courtesy of Marriage SOS Date Nights. This series of fun articles can help your relationship stay afloat in all weather.

After my third pointless appointment with a cheap counselor, I decided that my marriage and well-being were worth taking a chance on something different – your course. Wish I would’ve taken it from Day One (the day I discovered the affair) but better late than never. You are excellent at your job, Deb, and your course is amazing. – Ana, NYC
