Obnoxious, Controlling and Jealous
Tammy says she has been living in hell for the past 20 years, and she’s sick and tired of putting up with her angry husband, Reynir. She wants him to stop being a jerk and learn how to be a nice guy.
A Sister’s Perspective
“Hot-headed,” “selfish,” “domineering,” “a mean, scary jerk” is how Tammy’s sister, Lori, describes her brother-in-law. Despite Reynir’s objections, she joins the show over the phone and explains why she’s concerned for her sister.
“Not Good Enough”
Tammy and Reynir’s 16-year-old son, Tyler, shares how he feels about his father, and Tammy reveals what has been eating away at her for 20 years.
The Bottom Line
Dr. Phil tells the couple exactly what they need to do if their marriage doesn’t change in 90 days’ time. Can they turn their marriage around? Should Reynir resolve to be a nicer guy, or is it up to Tammy to change?
