          Extreme Marriages

          July 19, 2004

          Two million couples are part of gay, lesbian and transgender marriages, with one spouse being straight. Dr. Phil speaks with couples trying to deal with some extreme circumstances.


          Mixed Orientation Marriage
          Brandon confessed to Raquel that he was gay one week before their wedding. Now, three years and one child later, being true to themselves may destroy their marriage.


          Can they make this work?


          Married to a Transsexual
          With the support of his wife Nancy, James had a sex change operation and became Jamey. Jamey is now at peace, but the rest of her family is conflicted. 


          How can they explain it to the grandchildren?


          Extreme Age Difference
          Ben is 28 years younger than his wife, Julie. They want to know how to deal with everyone’s assumption that they are mother and son.
