Tatiana says she wasn’t born religious but claims her husband, Robert, a devout Jehovah’s Witness, used her innocence about the religion to pressure her into becoming a member. But four months ago, she left the religion and now wants her husband to leave, too.

To make matters worse, Tatiana and Robert say CPS recently put their children in foster care over what they claim was a misunderstanding. Now, they’re fighting to get them back, but Dr. Phil says their approach is all wrong.

Will Robert leave his religion for Tatiana, and can they get their children back? Dr. Phil offers some advice, but will they take it?
