Enroll Today for a Better Tomorrow

The Marriage SOS Online Crash Course Library contains six premium audio-based programs. For a single enrollment fee, you can choose one, two or all programs, depending on your needs. The Online Library offers content that is exceptional in quality, detail and scope, helping you to solve your primary problem (e.g. an affair) and then go on to resolve secondary issues and avoid future ones (e.g. arguing, loss of passion) so your marriage is stronger than ever. So do it right, starting right now.

I stumbled upon your program less than 48 hours after I found out about my husband’s year-long affair. He was stubborn and refused to end it. I was almost in hysterics, thinking I wasn’t young enough, slim enough, pretty enough. Your voice calmed me down and got me thinking straight. I had my doubts that a program like this would work, but I decided my marriage was worth the risk. I listened to your advice and did what I thought was best. He ended the affair at that point. Your course helped me see there were many reasons the affair happened, and my husband and I are now working together for a better tomorrow. I often re-listen to you to regain focus when I need to and still rely on the material. Thank you for saving my marriage. – Iris

Conversations are relaxed, and while frank, always positive and purposeful. So grab a good cup of coffee, find a private place to talk, and wait for Debra’s call. One hour can make a big difference.

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

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 and you were instrumental in getting us there. – Josh
