30 years ago today My wife and I got married.

Ups and downs aplenty in 30 years but more up than down.

Dark days 7 years ago in 2005 when I discovered her affair. Years since then mostly good, filled with love. Empty nesters now as well as the last 2 of our kids moved out of home this year.

We would have been dead without Dr Harley. If you learn and apply the methods and principles here you can recover from anything. There is always hope.

Congratulations to you and MrsKahuna!

Wow, congratulations, you guys!


If you are serious about saving your marriage, you can't get it all on this forum. You've got to listen to the Marriage Builders Radio show, every day. Install the app!

Many a good man has failed because he had a wishbone where his backbone should have been.

We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot.
