It’s a scene too often played out in current American culture: One spouse offers the other these five little words, now considered a legitimate exit line from what was supposed to be a lifelong commitment. Discarding popular advice to use romance and sweetness to draw a wandering spouse back into the marriage, Dr. David Clarke lays out an action plan based on Matthew 18. It turns the tables on the divorce-minded spouse and guides the injured spouse from becoming mired in devastation to calling the shots–leaving the fate of the marriage in the hands of the person still committed. Doctor Clarke’s beyond-tough-love program isn’t merely theoretical; it’s an approach that he has successfully used with hundreds of couples in his own practice. It’s an action plan that can be used to regain confidence, power, and control–and create the best chance of saving and rebuilding the marriage.
