Today's Takeaway: You Must Acknowledge Problems To Solve Them
Dr. Phil tackles the four biggest issues in relationships: money, sex, trust, and weight.
First, trust. Lisa says she met the man of her dreams, Johnathan, on an online dating site 15 months ago. After a few months, Lisa says they moved in together with their young children from past relationships, combined their finances, and discussed having more children and even marriage. Lisa says she wasted no time in trying on wedding dresses and looking for the perfect ring, but Johnathan dropped a bombshell, which changed everything: He says he won’t be walking down the aisle anytime soon. Why? Because he is not even divorced from his first wife!
Next, weight and sex. Mother of three Jamie dropped over 100 pounds and transformed herself into a new woman. But her husband of 18 years, Chuck, says his wife’s new figure is a turn-off and he is no longer attracted to her sexually.
And, money, one of the main reasons couples divorce. Chandler is learning that young love comes at a very high price. He says his 21-year-old fiancée, Arynn, has landed them in over $60,000 of debt because she can’t stop spending their money on the finer things in life.
