In this video, I’m going to teach you how to prevent separation or divorce and save your marriage. This is obviously going to be a huge topic and I’m going to cover as much as I can in this video. So sit tight and be sure to watch this entire clip, because I’m going to teach you things that most couples will never know about building a loving marriage.
“CAN YOUR MARRIAGE BE SAVED?”
Use my free quiz tool to find out!
This video is for people whose husband or wife announced that they’re no longer happy in their marriage. You may have heard painful things like, “I’m just not happy anymore”, “I don’t love you”, or “I’m leaving you.” Or, maybe they’ve already left you. No matter the case, I know how extremely difficult, stressful, and heartbreaking this situation is… and I know how hopeless you might feel at this very moment. So I’m going to start off this long video by telling you that there IS light at the end of this long tunnel. With the proper guidance, help, and attitude, it is possible to turn your marriage around despite how adamant your spouse may be on divorce. I know this because I’ve seen thousands of so called “hopeless” couples turn it around – and I know exactly how they did it.
With that being said, rebuilding a broken marriage is a rocky road. Sometimes, things can get a little worse before they get better, and it takes a lot of devotion on your part to make things better. However, I promise you that if you watch this whole video and follow my advice very closely, you’ll have the best chance possible of rebuilding that marriage you and your spouse deserve.
But before I get into what TO do to save your marriage, I first need to tell you about what NOT to do. The vast majority of married couples that I coach commit almost all of these very damaging mistakes. And I know that some of you might be in a situation where your spouse isn’t willing to work on the marriage, but in a minute, I’ll tell you why that’s okay, and why it’s even more important for you to learn these common mistakes before you go down the road of rebuilding a newer, happier marriage.
Some of this stuff you may already know, but it’s important to remember these mistakes before you cause any further damage to your marriage – and these are tips that will have an immediate impact on your relationship.
I like to call these mistakes my “Big Marital Mistakes”.
Big Marital Mistakes #1 – Initiating needless conflict with your spouse. When you’re trying to fix a broken marriage and you’re feeling desperate, chances are things can spiral out of control very easily… (and I think you know what I’m talking about). You think that if you could just talk to your spouse about all your problems and find common ground, your marriage will magically fix itself and get better. But usually, this isn’t the case.
While communicating with your spouse is important in rebuilding a marriage, what your marriage does NOT need right now is another argument or fight. Even if your partner says something antagonizing or wants to bring up a touchy sticky issue at the moment, do your best to avoid conflict politely. Don’t ignore your spouse or discount any of their concerns, but you need to ensure that the discussion doesn’t end up in a screaming match. You can say something along the lines of, “I know this is a real concern right now and I want to resolve this issue, but can we discuss this later?”
Try and be as non-confrontational as possible – at least for now – until you learn how you can manage how to handle your arguments later. I’ll get to what I call my “Dispute Defusing System” later in this video. If you have any questions or concerns about this common mistake, please be sure to ask questions in the comments section below. I’ll do my very best to get back to you as soon as I can.

The author gets emotional when speaking of the superstar rapper, saying she’ll never give up her bond with Wayne for a man, not even her husband, and admits to hopping out of bed in the middle of the night to be with him while her partner watched. She admittedly wouldn’t be able to put up with that herself, but says the men she invites into her life always think they can handle it until they realize they can’t.
Steffans also shared her thought on Wayne’s current issues with Birdman, saying she actually knew Baby before Wayne and has nothing but love for him. However, Wayne has told her personally that his Cash Money situation feels artistically stifling, saying she can tell that his last few albums have been sub-par compared to his earlier works partially because of his label issues.

Would you like to know How To Stop Thinking About Someone? This video will show you exactly how.
This video is about how to stop thinking about someone. It can also be used to show you how to forget someone you love, or how to stop missing someone, The basic premise is that the reason why you think about someone is because you think you would be happier if they were here. So, how to stop thinking about someone (how to forget someone you love) is to simply ask yourself “Can I think of some times when they were here that I wasn’t happy?”
Another way to say this is, if you want to know how to get over someone you love, what you really want know is how to stop thinking about them all the time. It is the thinking that is making you feel sad and lonely.
The question of how to get over someone you love is very common, and most people think that the answer is “time”. But, you can get over someone you love right now, if you simply discover that they didn’t give you the happiness you truly want.

From One of the Greatest Bands in History Comes a Reminder to Never Give Up Hope. In this long-awaited memoir, complete with color photographs, songwriter and keyboardist Jonathan Cain takes us on an odyssey from center stage with Journey when all America was listening to songs like “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Faithfully,” and “Open Arms,” to his hope and faith today. He tells of the thrilling moments when the music came together and offers an inside look at why Steve Perry left and the extraordinary story of their gifted new vocalist, Arnel Pineda.
When Jonathan Cain and the iconic band Journey were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cain could say he had finally arrived. But Cain’s journey wasn’t always easy – and his true arrival in life had more to do with faith than fame.
As a child, Cain survived a horrific school fire that killed nearly 100 of his classmates. His experience formed a resilience that would carry him through both tragedy and success. Moving from Chicago to Sunset Boulevard, Cain never let go of his dreams, eventually getting his big break with Journey – and writing the songs that would become the soundtrack of a generation.
Don’t Stop Believin’ is an epic story of one man’s dream that takes you from playing old-country songs at an Italian Deli in Chicago and his experiences with a warm, encouraging father who died too soon, to suddenly writing mega-bestselling songs with some of the most talented musicians and performers ever to take the stage of some of the world’s largest arenas. The song “Don’t Stop Believin'” is the most downloaded song of all time, and is one that has been covered by major televisions shows and adopted by a whole new generation.
Through a wonderful retrospective of music that takes us right to the present, Jonathan Cain reminds us of the melodies and lyrics that serve as milestones for our biggest dreams as they call us to never stop believing.
