Couple Follow-Ups: Tony and Kelly

Money Troubles
Dr. Phil follows up with Tony and Kelly, whose financial problems were causing them to consider divorce.
When Tony and Kelly first appeared on Dr. Phil, they were $30,000 in debt and had filed for bankruptcy. Kelly said this was due to her husband's inability to handle finances (he had nine failed businesses). She had refused to give Tony their ATM code and was ready to divorce him.

How are they now?

"Dr. Phil said something that was an eye-opener," explains Tony. "He said you can't solve money problems with money. It forced us to look at our behavior patterns and make some changes in our lives. I'm not saying our money problems are gone. But our behavior towards each other concerning money problems is totally different."
"Do you trust him enough to give him the ATM code?" asks Dr. Phil.

"I'm working on it," says Kelly.

"What do you think he's going to do?" asks Dr. Phil. "He can only take out $300 a day!"

"I don't know!" laughs Kelly.
"I tell you what," says Dr. Phil. "I have your ATM code right here. Whenever you're ready to give it to him, I want you to come back, and we'll give it to him on this stage."
