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."
