Save the Marriage Vital Information
Save the Marriage is a “marriage repair” and “relationship development” program that relies on a deep understanding of the intricate dynamics between couples. That is, you’ll learn the relationship principles working behind every interaction you have with your partner with the intention that this understanding would help you deal with these situations in a more positive and constructive way.
Save the Marriage is authored by Lee H. Baucom, Ph.D. Lee’s academic and industry credentials include two Master’s degrees and a Ph.D. in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy; as well as more than two decades (as of this writing) of marriage therapy practice. He also has a background on Community Building together with Personal and Life Coaching. Other than those self-listed accolades and credentials, there’s not much researchable information on Lee. This isn’t normally the case for someone who has been allegedly in the industry for this long with supposedly many successful clients. In that sense, we should assess his credibility with caution.
Save the Marriage Insider Look
Moving on to the program, the introductory chapters talk about the flaws of typical marriage counseling and couple’s therapy. Lee explains the approach that most couple’s therapy practices take and why those particular approaches are fundamentally flawed and unable to solve the core of the marriage problem.
Following that is Lee’s take on marriage counseling – that it’s an issue between two individuals who haven’t successfully moved from a “You & Me” mindset into a “We” paradigm. The rest of the program is about helping move you and your partner from the former to the latter.
For starters, you’ll be shown the recipe of a successful marriage in a form of a Venn diagram. He explains the 3 main elements of a marriage and how these elements interplay to result in a successful relationship.
The next chapter talks about finding, understanding, and committing to the “purposes of your marriage.” Lee emphasizes that it’s different for each couple; and that the most important thing is when you and your partner are clear on your particular relationship’s purposes and are committed to fulfilling them.
You’ll then be provided with some simple marriage secrets and tricks like giving up on arguing without dismissing communication, making progressive decisions, keeping a positive momentum, and how to handle the “lack” of emotions.
After that, you’ll learn how to understand and work along your partner’s viewpoint (i.e. “paradigm”), setting and respecting each other’s boundaries, and practicing a sense of gratitude and forgiveness.
Once you have gone through the “marriage tricks,” you’ll go back to some relationship concepts. Concepts such as the stages of intimacy, relating with your partner on a “high mood,” and living your relationship on the present are opened up and discussed in some detail.
The next topics involve issues of sex and money, both of which are considered by Lee as areas that represent a couple’s struggle for power. Lee then guides you on how to approach these two key areas and use them as tools to create a more harmonious marriage.
The whole program closes out with notes on how to continuously grow and evolve in your relationship, as well as some final statements from the author. The last sections include information about Lee’s several other products and marriage counseling services.

Our Save the Marriage Conclusion
Better Products for Your Consideration:
Save the Marriage would’ve been a great “marriage repair” program. It’s built on solid relationship principles and is created by an experienced practitioner in the industry. However, several key factors make this program fall short of reaching the “must have” resource for marriage repair. In that regard, we give this product an average 3 out of 5 stars rating.
Save the Marriage covers an impressive array of marital issues. That alone makes Save the Marriage worth a serious consideration. The program doesn’t just talk about sparking the romance (although it does) or resolving conflicts (although it also does). Critical issues regularly encountered by couples such as handling finances, making significant decisions together, and the meaning of committing to your relationship’s purpose are things discussed in this program that are often missed by others.
However, this program tends to focus too much on theoretical and conceptual information; to the point that it doesn’t offer much in terms of practicality. That is, you’ll get a keen understanding of how marriages should work, but you would still end up clueless on what you actually need to do. Knowledge and constructive paradigms are good, but marriages can only be fixed with concrete actions.
Regardless, if you and your partner want to be “on the same page” with the relationship, this program is a good place to start. As you and your partner gain a deeper understanding of how relationships work, maybe the both of you can jointly come up with how to fix the issues – possibly helping with strengthening your bond.
Our Final Suggestion: Try Before You Buy Save the Marriage

Wow! Glad I took the risk. First, this was the most straightforward piece of information I have read. Definitely not technical; and very practical.
I also got a free call from one of the coaches. My biggest complaint was it took 2 days before I could get that set up. Still, it was free and very helpful.
Oh, and about those emails - Dr. Baucom does free training every week (podcasts), and he does let me know about those trainings. That is how I found him, anyway. Just read the reviews while doing my due diligence. Every now and then, he sends something about another resource. If I'm not interested, I just delete.
Me and my husband are doing much better now. I don't think that would have happened without this resource.
Thank you very much for sharing your positive experience with this program, Yo. We are glad that this program was able to help improve you and your husband's relationship. More power to you and thank you for supporting our website.
Definitely glad I purchased this. It has provided immediate help for me. I cannot compare it to other programs, whether it is more technical, practical, or what. But it has definitely helped me understand my feelings AND provided practical courses of action that I can take immediately.
Thanks Bob for providing your take on this program. We welcome all different perspectives as this could only help all of the supporters of our site with regards to making intelligent buying decisions. We are also glad that you are doing well with the product.
The whole presentation seemed very convincing, yet somehow there was something that made me feel like it was a late night infomercial. This one review is all I needed to not purchase this product, especially if there really is no support team on the other end. It angers me that there are people out there who claim that they want to help you and pull on your emotions in a difficult time such as what I am having, but are only after your money.
Hi Craig, we are so glad to hear that our review for this product helped you make a wise purchasing decision. We do agree that there are a lot of snake oil salesmen out there, but there are a lot of quality products as well. The purpose of our website is to help you and all of our readers determine which is which. In any case, we thank you for your continued support and wish that you would be able to find the solution to get through the difficult time you are experiencing.
If I could give this a minus 1, I would. The material (e-books) contain the same information you can find on any infidelity recovery sites. Once purchased and signed up, you will get DAILY e-mails trying to sell you another product - a friend of the Save the Marriage program who has their PROVEN method to win your boyfriend back, how to make someone fall in love with you, how to stop the affair.... with the warning at the end of each one - do this or you will end in DIVORCE.
Is this really necessary during a very painful time to receive e-mails like these? They just want you to pump out your money 20, 30, or 40 dollars at a time into worthless information & they use scare tactics to do so. This is not the type of support I need at this time in my life!!!
Greetings Beverly, it pains us to hear that you have to go through such a hurtful relationship situation in your life and it is unfortunate that our bad review of this product was not able to stop you from buying this subpar package. There are lots of products out there that really do provide helpful relationship recovery information but we do agree with you that this is not one of them. We really want to thank you for having the courage to share your story and experience with this product; your review would be valuable to helping out our other readers to stay away from this program.
