          Why Dr. Phil Says Couple Fighting Over Prenup May Have Issues That Run Deeper


          December 16, 2016

          Ian says he was ready to walk down the aisle with his fiancée, Mel, whom he had been dating for six years, when his father advised him to get a prenup. After he heard rumors about Mel’s partying, drinking and possible cheating, Ian says he had an agreement drafted and presented it to his fiancée five weeks before the wedding. Furious and feeling ‘betrayed,’ Mel called off the wedding, and now the couple wonders if their relationship can survive.

          In the video above, Dr. Phil explains why he believes their issues run deeper than their disagreement about the prenuptial agreement.

          “This prenup is not your problem,” Dr. Phil tells Ian. “You have trust issues with her.”

          To Mel he says, “He does not believe that you sober and rational would make any decision that would threaten this marriage. But he does believe that when you go out and get into an altered state of consciousness, that you suspend good judgment and that might put you in a compromised decision that he would have a difficult time living with.”
