me and my ex husband have been going through alot but now are currently trying to work on things, well, as i was googling marriage counseling, i came across this site that sends videos to your email if you sign up for it that are supposed to help people see their marriage more clearly. i thought i would share the videos. these are just 2 of the videos, its all ive gotten so far.

the site is strongmarriagenow.com



Question: after watching these 3 videos, do you think they are a good start to fixing a marriage?

     I think there is a lot of good advice/points made in the videos IMO.

    I can't view them at work but wanted to thank you for sharing, I am currently separated from my husband and we are going to try and work on things maybe these video's can help too.

     May I make a suggestion?  I read a book called the 5 Love languages and it really helped us with our communications etc.  Just a thought.

    Thank you! That seems to be one of our big issues right now.

    Thank you so much for this. The timing is perfect. *sigh* Not that he'll even watch or heed anything she says, but it's worth a try I guess.

     The hardest thing for me when my DH and I were having issues was admitting that some of the things I was doing was counterproductive.  I'm not saying what you're doing is wrong because I don't know your situation but my point is this:  My DH was not gonna watch a video etc but...when I worked on me, he seemed to change as well.  I firmlly believe it takes two but sometimes someone needs to take the first step.  If he doesn't watch the videos, you watch them anyways.

    Yeah, I've just tried everything and as soon as I think things are going great...well, let's just say their names start with C, M, D and W and they're female. *sigh* Too many times i've had to read all the messages to other women and see that regardless of what I'm doing, he's off doing something else.

    I'm still not sure I'm ready to give up though.

    I put maybe because there are so many different situations that lead couples to divorce or to the point of needing counseling.  I guess these two videos are a good start, I'm definitely curious to see the others.
