Debra Macleod’s trusted on-demand audio/video crash course has the game-changing insights and powerful strategies you need to turn your situation around, fast. Press “play” on any device, then listen and learn.

No more endlessly analyzing your husband or guessing what to do. No more feeling powerless or afraid. This assertive, world-recognized online program decodes his words and behavior, and teaches you how to handle him, yourself and the situation with clarity and purpose. That’s what it will take to reclaim a marriage that insulates you from pain instead of inflicting pain. And it’s information you can’t go another day without knowing. (Scroll down for audio.) 

Right now, you may be shocked by your husband’s self-focus and self-indulgence. You may be baffled by his new interests or sudden obsession with fitness, or fearful of his new “friendships” (that means affairs!) with younger women. You may be hearing things like, “I love you, but I’m not in love with you,” or “I don’t know what I want.” You may be hurt by his words and behavior as they become increasingly confusing, cold or even cruel.

He may be re-writing your history, only remembering the bad times and blaming you for his unhappiness or unfulfilled dreams. Or he may be saying how wonderful you are and how he “doesn’t mean to hurt you” (even though that’s exactly what he’s doing!). He may be withdrawing, sending mixed messages, talking about getting his “own place” and living as though the world revolves around him. He may be retreating into introspection or self-pity. He may be moody, impulsive, egocentric, untrustworthy or unfaithful.

Deb, you’re the snake-charmer of midlife men. You knew every move my husband was making and you showed me how to manage him so he couldn’t do any more damage to me or to our marriage. How do I thank the person who showed me how to make my husband fall in love with me all over again? Listening to the course was such a pleasant experience, too.  The instructional aspect was in-depth and indispensable: you have a very take-charge, deliberate approach. For me, it was exactly what I needed to stop my emotional flailing and to assertively and strategically “conquer” his behavior. – Toni, Acton, England

When His Crisis Becomes a Marriage Crisis

As a result of his baffling, hurtful words and actions, your world is sent into a tailspin. Your every thought, feeling and move revolves around what he might be thinking, feeling or doing. You live in a chronic state of uncertainty and hurt. You tiptoe around his emotions, demands or sensitivities. You trudge through each day, trying to get through one of the worst times of your life. Yet it sometimes seems like your husband is having the time of his life, despite the drama and turmoil. It’s all about him and his search for happiness. This set of behaviors, when seen in middle-aged or older men, is generally described by the term “midlife crisis.”

And if you’ve had enough of it, this crash course can help you prompt a big change. It applies to many situations. Your husband may be living at home or moved out. He may be close to having an affair or already having one. He may say “it’s over” or he may say he’s “not sure.” He may be cruel or kind. Apathetic or apologetic. He may be a fitness nut or a couch potato. This course covers a lot of ground. It also prepares you for the various paths this crisis can take so you’re ready for anything and know what to do about it.

From the first word to the last, I felt like you literally reached into the chaos of my marriage, sat me down at your table and said, “Now listen up, sweetheart, this is what you’re going to do.”  I did it.  It worked.  I truly thank you. – Cara, Atlanta, GA

How Is This Course Unique?  Why Should I Choose It?

My course is unique – and effective – for a few reasons. First, it is issue-specific and direct. I provide clear insight and precise, step-by-step strategies to help you overcome the particular problem you’re facing – a husband’s midlife crisis.  I have found that this “bull’s eye” approach works better and faster than trying to implement general relationship ideas or theories. Being advised to “communicate more” doesn’t help you if your husband isn’t home. You can expect more from me.

In the same way, my approach falls on the assertive side rather than the “be nice and wait it out” side.  That kind of advice is easy to dish out – that’s why so many practitioners do it – but it doesn’t empower you and it won’t help you take charge of your life. Plus, it wastes precious time. If your husband has a foot out the door, emotionally or physically, you don’t have the luxury of time. Every moment matters. You’ll also find that many of my strategies are purposefully counter-intuitive. That’s good. You may need to do the unexpected.

You are the voice that every wife who is going through this gut-churning, head-spinning, soul-sucking ordeal needs to hear in her ear.  There were times in this program that I wanted to get on a plane, show up at your office and wrap my arms around you.  Your insight and instructions were my lifeline.  They pulled me out of the desperation and despair, and back to a place of confidence and certainty. I have him back and I didn’t have to sacrifice my dignity to do it. – Becka, Houston, TX

Unfortunately, most resources take a passive approach and pander to the husband’s needs during a midlife crisis.  That’s because some of these men can be hard to handle, and because many counselors and coaches have little training or experience working with couples in conflict. As a result, the squeaky wheel gets the grease. And since the husband is doing the squeaking, it’s all about him; however, this only ensures that his self-indulgence will continue to escalate. It only ensures that the marriage will continue to deteriorate. My background in mediation equips me to balance the competing needs and perspectives of both you and your husband for the overall good of your marriage. You’ll get the full benefit of that background in this course.

I have extensive “in the trenches” experience working with women in your situation and successfully resolving this kind of conflict. I know what behavior on your part is likely to work, and what behavior isn’t. I know what your husband is probably thinking and doing, and what it will take to shift momentum so he turns back to you. I’ve helped real couples navigate the “male midlife crisis” and emerge with a more loving, devoted and secure marriage: a marriage that meets both their needs, keeps their family together and provides a place of comfort and friendship.  Finally, my courses do not contain a hidden religious element. They offer no false promises, no magic secrets, no gimmicks. I don’t need them and neither do you.

This crash course should be required listening at every married woman’s 40th birthday party. It is a rite of passage into middle age.  Had I listened to this BEFORE it all blew up, I could have avoided months of emotional anguish and uncertainty. – Denise, Seattle, WA

I was doing every thing wrong. I was so consumed with the panic and desperation and fear and humiliation. I probably would’ve let those drive me into an early grave if I hadn’t found this course. Maybe I knew, deep down, that so much of what he was doing was manipulation but I was too afraid to do anything about it. That fear only doubled when he moved in with “her.” Thank you for taking me by the hand and walking me into the clear light of what was happening. Thank you for giving me my power back. Thank you for saving my marriage and my dignity. I feel authentic love from him and for the first time in years we are excited about continuing the journey of our life together. – Tama, Perth, AUS
