Are you tired of arguing, crying, or speculating about your spouse’s affair or inappropriate friendship? Is a midlife crisis tearing your marriage apart? Do you spend your days bickering and your nights sleeping back to back? Enrollment in Debra Macleod’s Marriage SOS Online Program Library gives you access to six of her most popular “crash course” style programs that tackle some of the toughest marriage problems head on, focusing on solutions instead of filler or theory. These audio programs are ideal for no-nonsense people who require a bank of usable information to draw from, allowing them to manage their situation quickly and confidently in a real-world way. Don’t wait for an uncooperative partner to join in. You start.

 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

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.

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

Affairs and the post-affair period can be an emotional and complex one. There may be all kinds of variables and circumstances to contend with. Yet as often as not, I see people overcomplicating the simple—but not necessarily easy—things that need to be done once an unfaithful spouse’s affair has been discovered. If you’re a spouse who has broken your partner’s trust, and if you truly want to rebuild, these 10 Rebuilding Blocks are a great way to start.

Were they in love with each other? I’m not sure. If they weren’t, it was getting there. She couldn’t go more than ten minutes without checking her phone, and if I said anything – look out. The fight was on and it was always my fault. I feel like I caught it just in time. The most surprising thing to me has been how ending that friendship has given us a new beginning as a couple. There’s a more mature and united feeling to “us” now. – Josh
