Recently I was given the opportunity to use the Marriage Fitness program by Mort Fertel in exchange for an honest review of the program and the opportunity to share it with you. If you’ve been reading our blog for awhile you know that we don’t promote a product or service unless we firmly believe in it and would use it ourselves. So that’s why I’m sharing with you today about this alternative to marriage counseling. But first let me tell you my story.
I haven’t really shared a lot on this blog about my marriage because I firmly believe that the problems between a husband and wife need to stay that, between a husband and a wife. But because I want to help those of you who might be facing the same battles, I’m going to share my background and how my marriage has benefited from this program.
My Story & How Marriage Fitness is Helping Rebuild My Marriage
My husband and I tied the knot back in 2010 and, like most couples, we went through that honeymoon phase, where love is in the air and there’s fairy dust and rainbows all around. Not really, but you know what I mean! The times where you couldn’t wait to get home each day just to spend time with the love of your life. Before long that rush to get home was exchanged for a rush to get out of the house in the mornings so you could avoid an argument and trying hard to find any excuse not to go straight home in the evenings just so that you avoid the other person. Things were not good.
I can’t pinpoint any one moment when things went south but rather it was a gradual thing. It started out as one bad day here and there but those bad days turned into bad weeks and bad weeks turned into bad months. Many of the issues were the result of my husband’s addiction and infidelity and the resulting loss of trust that came afterwards. But there were other situations that put a lot of stress on our marriage as well. We had not been married long when we learned we were expecting a baby girl but our daughter was stillborn. A pregnancy alone can put stress on a marriage but when you factor in the loss of a child it can really be devastating.
With Mort Fertel’s Marriage Fitness program, marriages dealing with any of the things listed below can benefit:
- Broken Trust
- Threat of Divorce
- An Obstinate Spouse
- Emotional Neglect
- Money Conflicts
- Addictive Behaviors
- Emotional Infidelity
- Poor Communication
- No Sex
- Lack of Appreciation
- No Affection
As I was typing that list above, I was mentally checking each one. Yep, that was us, and that one there too, and that one. Come to think of it a lot of the issues listed above were going on in my marriage at one time or another.
My husband has battled many addictions in his life and those addictions have hurt our marriage emotionally, spiritually, physically and financially. We finally reached a point in our marriage that it was either this is going to work or we need to walk away now. We chose to make this marriage work which is where the Marriage Fitness program came into play.
With the Marriage Fitness Program the first step is to complete a series of assessments which help you determine what exactly needs to be done to fix your marriage. These assessments take a look at:
- Knowledge of Each Other
- Giving Patterns
- Decision Making
After completing these assessments we had a good idea of what areas needed to be fixed which made it easy to dive right into the program when Mort emailed us the “7 Secrets for Fixing Your Marriage“. Over 2 million people have subscribed to this free report, arming them with the tools needed to begin repairing their marriage.
I knew I would never be able to convince my husband to go to marriage counseling, no matter how much he wanted to save our marriage. He is not a fan of talking about his feelings and I have to admit I wasn’t to keen on it either! That’s one reason why I was thrilled to find this program. Marriage Fitness uses a step-by-step approach to help you neutralize your problems without dredging up your past and rehashing all your problems. Even if you have an uncooperative spouse and you are the only one wanting to make the marriage work this program can help you. Mort has a “Lone Ranger Track” which is designed especially for those who are in this journey alone.
After we completed the assessments and took time to dig into the “7 Secrets for Fixing Your Marriage“ we were able to start working on our problems. These 7 secrets helped us so much even from the first day. You see, we had a bad habit of bringing up our “problems” and constantly talking about our problems just kept making things worse. This free report was a true eye opener for us. By taking the steps outlined, things started improving immediately. Now, I’m not saying we didn’t run into issues along the way as we were trying to fix our marriage but when we did hit a road bump we were able to take a step back and reflect on these 7 tips.
Our efforts didn’t stop there because the Marriage Fitness program is much more than those 7 secrets. With the 7 week Tele-Boot Camp we received access to a 15 part audio learning system, a Marriage Fitness workbook and journal, a members only website and so much more. We are still in the process of our 7 week Tele-Boot Camp but so far so many things have changed for the better in our marriage. We no longer dread seeing each other because those hostile arguments have turned into supportive, caring conversations. We have been able to set our problems aside and focus solely on reconnecting with each other and building our marriage rather than trying to solve our problems.
If you’re reading this and you find yourself in a marriage that needs some work I highly encourage you to take a moment to sign up to receive the “7 Secrets For Fixing Your Marriage”. It’s free, you don’t have to buy anything, and I can honestly tell you that I think this will be one of the most important things that you can do to save your marriage because it’s made all the difference in the world in my marriage.
