          Anatomy of a Marriage
          Erin was prepared to ask her husband Martin for a divorce when their 15-year-old daughter, Alexandra presented the news that she was pregnant. To get through this family crisis, the couple is considering staying together.


          Dr. Phil delves into the emotional weight of Martin’s two affairs and Erin’s control issues.


          Can They Make It Work?
          “As far as saving our marriage, that’s going to take a Herculean effort on both our parts,” Erin says. Martin is more optimistic that they can rebound from the pain and live happily as a couple again.
