Do you mean like written, on-line advice? Maybe Dr. Phil's web site. He's got his head on straight when it comes to marriage advice.

I'm sorry you're having a hard time. Been there, too.

Sorry you are having difficulty. Not sure of your current situation but wanted to let you know I am a big fan of counseling...period. I've been in therapy for a while - although only monthly now - and my husband and I did counseling while we were working through some major issues.

If you are looking for free advice - and you don't feel the internet is sufficient, check with your church or other organizations who may offer assistance. I'm not certain if you are a religious person but if so, your clergy should be able to at least give you the name of someone who can help.

Best of luck...take one day at a time.

When my hubby and I were separated and having problems I used I got the book Divorce Busting and 5 Love Languages... totally saved me, my sanity, and eventually my marriage.

amazing. great advice. It really helps to get the book (amazon, Barnes and Noble, borders.. all carry it) and read it then the advise and suggestions work.

2 years back together, and I still go back and reread parts of the book and go to the site for advise and to give advice from my experiences. PM me if you need.

I respect everyone's opinion, but think about the advice about Dr. Phil. He is a celebrity and does not follow any of the format of true counseling. He has a show and says and does things to fit into the hour slot and have enough drama to keep viewers. Counseling is not about drama or deciding who is wrong.
Counseling should be available to everyone. Lots of psychologists work on a sliding fee scale so that you can get the help you need. Check it out
If you want to learn about it yourself the local librarian is your next best source.
Good luck.

Sorry to hear you are having troubles.

I picked up a book at the book story a few weeks back and find it most interesting..perhaps it will help you. I find that it has some really good information in it, plus practical exercises you can work on in your marriage. So far it's been just me reading it, but i plan on getting my husband more involved.

I don't know if what your going through, but if you need to reconnect and refocus on each other this may be a good book to check out.HTH
