          Relationship Rescue Retreat

          August 11, 2004

          Infidelity

          Six couples on the verge of divorce continue their work with Dr. Phil to save their marriages. The participants acknowledge their wrongdoing, and ask for their partners’ forgiveness.

          “Forgiveness is a choice,” Dr. Phil tells them. “Don’t stand there and wait for some miracle to wash away the anger and bitterness and the hurt.”

           

          Get caught up with all of the couples.



          Guilt and Shame
          Dr. Phil guides the couples through an exercise to get past the feelings that hold them prisoner.

           

           


          What are they ashamed of?

           



          Living With Bitterness
