I am an international marriage author & conflict specialist who offers modern Western-style relationship help to Indian spouses. I specialize in situations where one spouse is more motivated to save the marriage, perhaps because the other spouse is being stubborn or is involved with another person.

Modern Marriage Help

Indian couple at odds.Today’s Indian spouses often find themselves struggling to balance the “forever” idea of traditional marriage with the problems that all modern couples face – personal technology and social media, more personal relationships with the opposite-sex, changing gender roles and expectations, cultural and family pressures, life transitions (i.e. career, children, midlife) and so on.

Whether your marriage was arranged or a love match (or somewhere in the middle!), you will face marriage problems and you will have to decide how you will handle them. Will you just learn to live with it? Will you get a divorce? Or will you try to make things better, even if your spouse isn’t willing to do that yet? Only you can answer that question.

I have worked with many Indian wives and husbands who have decided that they are going to try to save their marriage, even if they have to take those first steps without their partner. These spouses have decided that my unique professional approach is exactly what they need to help them solve their problems and go on to have a marriage that is better than ever.

An Effective Approach

It is common for an unfaithful or uncooperative spouse to refuse to get professional help, especially counseling. They may not like the stigma or they may be worried about someone finding out. They may find that counseling is too inconvenient, doesn’t work fast enough, or doesn’t offer practical advice. Or maybe you’ve tried counseling and found it only made matters worse as you and your spouse only argued in front of the counselor! Indeed, couples counseling does have a low success rate.

My online “crash courses” and my consults are your secret weapon in the fight for your marriage. Your spouse will be surprised by the change in you! I have a background in marital conflict resolution and have spent years researching my marriage books – I know what helps couples reconnect and stay connected. My approach is free of judgment, preaching, guilt and pressure. It is full of usable insights and practical strategies that you can start to use right away.

My courses can teach you how to overcome conflict with clarity and dignity, and how to rebuild your marriage on the foundation of a romantic friendship.

So if you want a “forever” marriage but you aren’t willing to bow to social pressure by “suffering in silence” through problems, my online courses can help. They are trusted worldwide for a good reason.

If you value your privacy and wish to obtain the very best marriage-saving insights and strategies as quickly as possible, you have come to the right place.
