It's that time again! Dr. Phil checks in with past guests to see who has changed, and who's back for more! Marlon and Shamika are newlyweds who say their marriage has been on the rocks since the day they said "I do." They return for round three with Dr. Phil! After their last appearance, Marlon says Shamika was in such a rage, he feared she was going to pull a knife on him. They filed for divorce, but Shamika regrets it. Dr. Phil puts them through his divorce readiness test. Is Marlon ready to call it quits, or is he still in love with his wife? Then, remember the mom who wouldn’t let her daughter play with unattractive children? Has she changed her thinking? And, Jackie called herself a "monster mom" because she yelled at her overweight daughter, and called her ugly names like, "fat bitch" and "rotten witch," among others. Big changes are happening with this mother and daughter. Join the discussion.

 

Find out what happened on the show.

marlon and shamika

It's too bad Marlon and Shamika filed for divorce.  Dr. Phil was really trying to help them.  I guess whatever issues or differences they had to overcome were just too much.

It just seemed to me that no matter how hard Marlon tried it was never good enough for Shamika so of course Marlon is eventually going to give up she was always putting him down and was never happy with what he did and really tried I mean on the last show he was talking about all the things he had started doing for her and she still wasn't happy so she was just the kind of person who obviously couldn't be satisfied she always needed something to complain about...  I would have given up too..

Wondering..

If they went to counseling,Individual first, then later on together?  Good Luck. 

  

  

There are supports groups out there.  Overeater's anonymous, Food addicts anonymous.These are free,  TOPS  Very reasonable. 

  

BT-DT   Been there,done that. 

  

Also you have to burn more than you eat.  Exercise. Start walking, and after 1-2 months make a sweat. For at least 20 minutes a day.  Chk. With Doc First. And all the other usual stuff, eat right, water, etc, etc.

Shamika and Marlon

I just watched the follow-up show with Shamika and Marlon, and I'm glad you did that for them. My husband and I are kind of going thru the same thing, so Dr. Phil, if you are not in the process of writing a book about how to know whether you're ready for a divorce, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE write one; it would be beneficial for this country and all couples everywhere.

That was how I saw that couple too.  I wasn't surprised that Marlon decided to get out at all-the only surprise there was how long it took him. 

  

However, today I am surpised to see that Shamika was willing to admit her problem and be humble enough to ask for another chance.  I don't know if anyone but Dr Phil could have done that.

there is hope

At the end of the show, I could see there is still a lot of love buried under the bitterness.  But, just like any other couple, you have hope if you follow what Dr. Phil says.  Just set yourselves free and let the love flow.  You do not have to set high expectations for each other because if it is not fulfilled you will t feel disappointed.  "love is like a bed of roses "every rose has thorns, you have to learn how handle the thorns in order to enjoy the rose".

Maybe I'm being Ugly but...........

I don't think Shamika is grieving the loss of Marlon so much as she is grieving the loss of a comfy life style.   She couldn't honestly think that Marlon was going to put up with her BS indefinitely.  My husband and I have certainly had disagreements.  Last Saturday night we had all out war, but we never resort to name calling and pettiness.  I don't understand doing things that poison your marriage if you do indeed love your spouse. 

Marlon is very handsome successful  and not to mention a nice guy.  I hope he finds someone that will appreciate him. 

Because lets be honest there are women, even on this board, that would love to find a good man.
