An Online “Crash Course” Available in the USA & Canada
Tired of feeling like there’s three people in your marriage? Stop having pointless arguments with your spouse about it. Start listening now, from any device, to my online audio/multimedia crash course. It’s your secret weapon in the fight for your marriage.
Are you worried about the friendship your partner has with another woman or man? Maybe it’s a new co-worker at the office or an old flame on social media. It could be anyone. Regardless of who it is, those red flags are waving. Your partner is telling you they’re “just friends,” but their secretive behavior and the way they seem to protect this friendship, even prioritize it over the marriage, has left you in a state of worry, fear, hurt and frustration.
Well, it’s time for all of that to change. I’ll give you usable insights and strategies to manage what is happening and turn things around as quickly as possible. Most importantly, I’ll show you how to motivate your spouse so that he or she wants to end the friendship and recommit wholeheartedly to you and to your marriage.
This course can change the course of your marriage. After many years as a marriage author and conflict specialist, I am confident in my no-nonsense method.

As a practitioner, it frustrates me that spouses in your situation are getting advice that works against them in the long-term. You deserve better and I sincerely want you and your spouse to reconnect in a loving, lasting way.
When I listened to the course, it was already to the point where I felt like they were married to each other and I was the annoying outsider who couldn’t take the hint to leave them alone. Talk about degrading. Worst part was, my wife knew exactly what she was doing to me. She was doing such a damn good job, though, that it took this course (hard to listen to at times, Deb, but so necessary) to make me clue in. Thank you for that and for giving such clear instruction. It’s one thing to know it’s happening and another to know what to actually do about it – you did it all. – Terry, Lakeville, IN
PLAY AUDIO INTRO:
This empowering, effective program is worth thousands of dollars in private sessions with leading marriage author and conflict specialist Debra Macleod, B.A., LL.B. It can be streamed from any device: cell phone, computer, tablet. Many marriages end in divorce because people either hesitate to get help or don’t know what to do when their spouse won’t participate; however, with this online course, getting top-tier help has never been more accessible, convenient or affordable. Course enrollment is for a one-year period.
I read one of your anti-opposite-sex friendship blogs a couple years ago and thought you were crazy. Yeah. Then I saw the picture my husband’s “work out buddy” sent him. Her toned tummy and, yep, everything south of there too. All the predictable stuff followed. The downplaying, saying I was overreacting, and then eventually admitting that he found her “amazing” and was just so drawn to her. Ugh. I am indebted to you for saving my marriage and my self-respect. Your course was equal parts inspiring and instructional. With a good kick in the ass for good measure. – Kay, Miami, FL
When You’ve Had Enough of the Threesome…
You know something isn’t right. Perhaps your partner is locking or guarding their phone – it’s never more than an arm’s length away, and they get defensive if you ask to see it. Or perhaps it’s gone beyond that. Perhaps you’ve seen the intimate things they’ve been saying or sending to each other – declarations of affection or desire, private revelations, or even explicit pictures.
You feel angry, sad, betrayed and second-place to this other person; however, every time you express yourself, your spouse finds a way to shut you down. They downplay the friendship or say you’re overreacting, insecure, jealous or controlling. Or they accuse you of not wanting them to have any friends. Or they get angry or give you the silent treatment. Regardless, you’ve had enough of biting your tongue or trying to explain – always to no avail – why the friendship is wrong. You’re tried of feeling less important than this other person and having to suppress your own fears and feelings.
To me, the course was like being sprung from jail. You broke me out of my victim role. – Adrian, NYC
Enough is enough. It’s time to take back your first-place standing in your own marriage. But you have to do it correctly – you can’t complain, threaten or issue an ultimatum. You can’t drag your partner kicking from the friendship. Your partner has to want to reject this person and re-embrace you with renewed passion and devotion. And the sooner you can motivate them to do that, the better – because the last thing you want is for this friendship to transition into a “love triangle” affair between your spouse, their friend and you. If it gets to that point, you’re in for a whole new level of pain and drama, and divorce becomes a real possibility.
Yes, you can reclaim your partner and enjoy a more loving, stable marriage – the kind that insulates you from pain instead of inflicting pain. That’s the goal of this program. In it, you’ll learn to tackle this problem in a realistic, proactive and comprehensive way. You’ll learn to assess the friendship and your situation, and then formulate a step-by-step plan that encourages your spouse to end the friendship. You’ll learn how to decode your partner’s resistance and difficult words or behaviors. And then you’ll learn how to strengthen the foundation of your marriage so this never happens again.
Were they in love with each other? I’m not sure. If they weren’t, it was getting there. She was almost obsessed with him. 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, Shelbyville, TN
I spent a year of my life second-guessing myself and feeling my stomach sink every time my husband leapt from his chair to text her back. That whole year I was either on the verge of tears, panic or rage. Your course gave me the knowledge and the fearless attitude I needed to break free of that. I never would’ve thought so (especially in the thick of it) but he dropped her fast once he knew he couldn’t have it both ways. It actually made our marriage better. There’s no doubt he values me more now. – Hina, Provo, UT
