When faced with your spouse’s unfaithful, untrustworthy, uncooperative or ambivalent behavior, you need to cope with your feelings – but you also need to keep thinking, and thinking smartly. What are the best, and worst, ways for you to handle what is happening in a practical sense? What words and actions are most likely to motivate your spouse to prioritize you and your marriage, given what is happening? Debra Macleod’s Marriage SOS™ provides specialized and accessible resources that can help you properly manage this marriage crisis, reconnect with your spouse, and save your marriage, starting now. Because if not now, when? You’ll know it’s right for you if any of the below points resonate:


In a matter of minutes, you could be listening your way out of misery and conflict with these immersive “crash course” style online programs. They deliver essential, streamlined insights and strategies to help you turn your situation around as quickly and painlessly as possible, and at a fraction of the cost it would otherwise take to obtain this level of top-tier marriage-saving guidance. Private and powerfully effective, they are your secret weapons in the fight for your marriage.

If your spouse has had – or is having – an affair, this essential program delivers urgent and at times unconventional strategies to pull your marriage off the dead-end path an affair has put it on.

If you feel like there are three people in your marriage, you need to stop worrying, wondering, and having pointless arguments about it. This crash course can help you turn things around.

If you’re losing your husband to a midlife crisis, it’s time to stop analyzing or tiptoeing around him. This program gives you more effective ways to reclaim his love and respect, and your marriage.

Whether you succumbed to an affair or a stupid mistake, whether you do or don’t care about the other person, this program can help you think clearly, restore calm, and keep your marriage intact.

Has your marriage lost its warmth, good humor and intimacy? This crash course is a must-have resource for anyone needing to inject some passion and peace back into their marriage.

Stop letting your fears, emotions or obsessive, over-analyzing thoughts get the better of you! Stop letting them prevent you from doing what you know must be done to save your marriage.


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.” I am still surprised by how precisely your program mirrored what was happening to me, and how fast things changed once I wised up and started using your strategies. I truly thank you. – Cara

One-on-one telephone sessions with Debra Macleod are a little different. Instead of trying to book ongoing sessions, Debra tries to offer usable insights and brainstorm key strategies in a single session, thus bringing you closer to that all-important pivot point in your marriage – the point when things can start to change to your benefit. While phone sessions do move rapidly, they are relaxed and friendly, with a plainspoken and purposeful style that many people prefer. So if you’re struggling with your spouse’s (or your own) emotional or physical affair, overly close friendship, midlife episode or other challenging behavior, book a session with Debra. One hour can help you turn an important corner.

You’ve heard the expression, ‘physician, heal thyself,’ right? That’s why it took me six years to realize I couldn’t fix it myself. You have a direct and confident manner – I probably wouldn’t have tried anything you recommended if you didn’t. Thank you for your outstanding services. – P.R.
