Tommy says that for the last 10 years, he has suspected his wife, Rachel, of cheating on him. He also says that last year, he believed that his wife of 31 years hired a hitman to kill him. Rachel denies both claims.
 
Tommy and Rachel both agree that his accusations are causing Rachel to drink to excess, and the drinking and allegations are negatively impacting their relationship.
 

On Friday's episode of Dr. Phil, Dr. Phil tells Tommy that he doesn’t believe Rachel hired a hitman to kill him nor that she’s cheated on him. He encourages Tommy to write down his thoughts and beliefs and test them against rational criteria. Watch the video above to learn the four criteria for rational thought.
 
This episode, "'My Wife Hired a Hitman,'" airs Friday. Check local listings to see where you can watch.
