People need to understand that it requires TWO people to make a marriage work. Almost any problem CAN be worked out, but only if BOTH parties are willing to do the work. When I got married, I intended it to be forever. I worked HARD for a VERY long time to repair our problems. He, however, wasn't willing to work on himself. I found myself in a situation where my only options were to live in a toxic and unhappy situation for the rest of my life or leave. So I left. It wasn't easy and I didn't take it lightly.I was emotionally traumatized by his uncontrollable cheating habit,he lied to the point i was seen as a BAD wife,all thanks to 'hackingloop6@gmail . c o m' for their investigative and hacking service that helped me gain access to all his phone activities remotely and expo0sed all he was doing behind my back.It really takes two positive minds to make marriage work.

wow thats wot i love about dr. laura fearless ready to take on ANYONE in this case girls mom to call her out on her bullshznit...tho its true lot of women settle for guy with big wallet n worldly success over attraction but women attraction completely differs from men what men r attracted towards.. men r physically attracted while women are emotionally attracted. Do we wanna mess that up? i m just raising a point.. love dr. laura tho..

Thinking this truth may also apply to my hi-functioning schizophrenic son who's 47, on welfare, single, & refuses to get back on medication for this. Functioning well & regularly as a reliable volunteer in the community until four years ago, he's now more agitated & argues with anyone who suggests medication will help in all his relationships. Family is uncertain & unsure -- does not want to be around him now

I love proper care and feeding of husband .. There's another book written by a man can't remember author name called how to have a new husband by Friday.. Same premise.. Women have the power.. If hubby is becoming distant or too involved with work.. We can reel them in.. Don't become the nagging wife

Yes ma'am... I'm going to be sad they never became decent people... I have the exact issue with my mom and brothers... I will be relieved to have a release from the torture.

So true... My mom did this my entire life.. Avoiding asking my brothers for help instead asking me... When I finally said no she threw a tantrum and totally cut me out of her life.. It hurts but now I know I was never more than someone she could use.

I Agree in this situation... I have the opposite issue with my mom.. I try to keep it respectful always while my mom humiliates me in pu lic is rude and disrespectful.. I'm 54...but...she has always been that way from when I was a child she has always said she prefers boys and wishes she had all boys... So I feel she treats me as competition.. With my dad... My husband...my kids... She ignores me pushes my feelings aside etc... But she has used me for all I can possibly do for her while refusing to ask my brothers for help with the excuse they have their own lives to live... As if my family life isn't important... I've had to walk away... But that is on her... Not me... She overstepped the boundaries and while I tried with the honor thy mother.... I cannot... For my sanity

Let them go... I had to let my mom go after years of being used... You are already seven years in.. You will lead a happier life without them.. It's only been a couple of months for me and my husband keeps me strong.. It's not that I grieve our relationship... I grieve the relationship I wish I had.. She prefers my brothers and only needed me... Never loved... Just needed... I finally figured it out.

This fit me and my mom although she is not an alcoholic she is a user...user of time.. Money... Emotions.. She connects better with siblings who are also users... When I had to say no.. She cut off contact completely and has tried to turn my children her grandchildren against me by telling them I treat her badly.. It is sad to be out of her life after all I've done for her.. But I just couldn't be used one more day.. If she can't handle no and must throw this type of tantrum I must walk away for a healthier me.. My husband has been begging me to say no for years and I finally did it... The weight of guilt has been lifted.

one of the best things my father did for me when he was diagnosed nosed with cancer is he wrote us letters for milestones in our lives. 16th birthday wedding days graduations. your daughter will cherish those letters in her life if you aren't able to be there.

ok hmm full blame on parenting is valid? im not so sure.. if ur 18 yr old decides to drop outta highscool.. what really can u do? other than advise him against it cuz legally he isnt minor...if u threaten to kick em out...being rebel kids are at teenage yrs..they may run away n do furthermore harm BUT at same time u don't sit idle n watch em drop out... something needs to be done where parents can have more leverage..so their ADULT teenagers make right choices n family stay entact n on correct trajectory of life.

the man who consoled everyone all of sudden found himself needing consolement becuz he was used to be in environment of consolement.. it became his oxygen..once no one left to console.. he felt suffocating... his anchor will be revived with charly coming into his life..i say we need to stop being too attached to anyrhing that perishes.. n attach to one who never perishes, that is Allah.. lord of universe. his is the dominion his is the power everlasting, for he is source of everything..all glory to the most high, the most merciful, the compassionate.

amazing lesson.. live in now..past is done.. look at future.. thinking of past errors can paralyze us..n become obstacle in our path to move fwd.. so profound dr.laura thank u... ahh the last minute brought tears to my eyes as i sensed an image of a 70+ old lady passing on her wisdom to the young 10 yr boy n he received it so well.. tears becuz this is life manifestation.. we live we die we pass on the wisdom to the next... lets volunteer n share/teach wisdom to young ones with love.. lets stop neglecting young ones as insignificant.. every soul is precious.

excellent handling dr. laura touchy subject for men indeed seeing a girl changing into woman n potentially attractive one... dad is probably trying hard to avoid her. reminds me of my time at work, i use to avoid a co worker who i had massive crush on..to avoid any chance of conflict.. men n their ❤ are weak upon coming across beautiful faces.. satan n his tricks n tactics..god save us all from temptation n sins n forgive us.

Thank you for this podcast. It validates what I was saying to others about Kindergarten "graduation"...its nonsense but I do agree that it's an academic accomplishment.
