Find out if a union can survive infidelity and how you know when you should call it quits.


          A Wake-Up Call for Mom

          Lancine wrote the show because she and her sisters want Dr. Phil to talk some sense into their mother, also named Lancine. The daughters say their mother is wealthy and owns three homes with her husband, but she’s left him and now lives in a tent with her much younger boyfriend!


          “I thought she had lost her mind.”



          Is There Something Wrong with Mom?
          Lancine says she’s just trying to live her own life, but her daughters are concerned about her future and her well-being. They say their mom often makes bad choices when it comes to men. And, Megan says she’s suspicious of the motives of her mom’s boyfriend. 


          Dr. Phil has a stern warning for the elder Lancine.
