          Broken Trust

          April 07, 2009

          A recent Reader’s Digest poll ranked trust as the number one crucial quality for a happy marriage. But what happens when trust between spouses is broken? Deanne and Brian have been married for 12 years and have four children between them. Now, due to alleged lies and infidelity, their family is torn apart and divorce is just a signature away. Can and should this marriage survive without trust?


          Brian’s Vices

          Deanne says although Brian has lied, cheated and exhibited inappropriate behavior, she still loves him and is torn about signing divorce papers. When Dr. Phil lays out the charges against Brian, will he accept the responsibility for his actions?


          “There’s something there he didn’t want you to see.”



          Deanne’s List

          Deanne hasn’t been perfect during their marriage either. Brian says she’s a workaholic, has an inappropriate friendship with another man and neglects the family. Will Deanne acknowledge these behaviors?


          “I don’t find anything wrong with it.”



          The Children’s Reaction

          Hear from Deanne’s two daughters from her previous marriage, who have opposing views about the situation.


          Is there hope for rebuilding this family?
