In How to Save Your Marriage Alone, his understanding and candid advice--based squarely on concepts from the Bible--can transform a marriage even when only one of the partners learns the principles of building love and applies them consistently.

As Dr. Wheat explains, the key is to have faith in God and to actively, patiently, unfailingly love your husband or wife. And, something that's hard in today's world, you must politely disregard those well-meaning but misguided people who tell you to put yourself before your spouse, so you can later have someone who "deserves you." That kind of thinking only works in the short-term, if even that.
Remember that winning your husband or wife back is NOT IMPOSSIBLE, even if sometimes it feels like it.
The book is a quick, easy read. I read it multiple times. Buy this book, do what it says, and place your faith in God and His teachings. At the very least, you'll feel peace that you did your best; but even more likely, you'll save your marriage.
Here are some bullet point from the book:
If your marriage is in trouble it's because both of you have done things wrong
No marriage is too far gone to be saved
Even if your partner is cheating you should NOT kick them out of the house, as you want to keep them close and not push them into the arms of the one they are cheating with
You should spend every waking moment of your life making sure you are perfect and a clear contrast to the person your spouse is choosing over you at that moment
You should leave notes and gifts for your spouse and go out of your way to make your spouse feel loved
NEVER talk about the "third" member of your marriage because you don't want to bring your spouses mind back to them when it's "your time"
Avoid ALL fights at ALL cost
The list could go on and on, but I think you can see the pattern. As I write this a year later after MONTHS and MONTHS of therapy and THOUSANDS of dollars paid to get REAL help, I ask you this. Can you afford to get this book. I only wish I could go back in time and NOT buy this book. If your spouse is cheating on you it is not your fault.
Do yourself a favor if you find yourself married to a cheater who is unwilling to work on your marriage would give up their "extra activities" and let this book pass by, hire a lawyer and a professional therapist and buckle in for a long road of recovery.
