Get strong. Get attractive. Get a strong, joyful and intimate marriage. Traditional marriage counseling, couples therapy or couples counseling will tell you that a good marriage is based on compromise. Validating feelings. Sacrifice. I tried that for years. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work. That’s why most couples who go through marriage counseling are the same or worse off after. BUT, in my studies in neuroscience at BYU, MD training at UCLA, psychiatry residency, marriage coach training, and most importantly in my own marriage, I finally found what DOES work. Building strength. Spiritual, mental, emotional and sexual strength. Strong is sexy. And, it feels great. As I applied this to my own marriage, I felt better than ever and had more connection and passion than I thought possible. I started teaching this to other men and couples and they were able to transform their marriages as well. This even works for affair recovery and emotional affairs. Now it’s your turn. Get strong. Get attractive. Get the marriage of your dreams.

Your wife is telling you she doesn’t love you anymore.

These days it’s popular to say “I’m working on myself.”

Your wife might even be saying “You need to work on yourself.”

But what does that even mean?

To me, it’s about building up your spiritual, mental, emotional, physical and sexual strength.

It’s also about building up your communication skills so you know how to get to win-win with your wife (and others).

And, with your wife, learning how to create fun, flirting and passion.

But what’...

“Don’t tell me, SHOW me!”

This is what your wife says when you tell her that you are going to change.

Most men go about this the wrong way.

They try to show their wife they are changing by doing more dishes, buying more gifts, or sending lots of text messages saying they’re sorry.


Because they’re not addressing the CORE issues that drove your wife away.

Learn what those core issues are…

How to change them…

A member of The Strong Man System recently asked what to do when your wife ignores your text messages.

It is VERY difficult when this happens.

But, it's also an OPPORTUNITY.

Your response will show your TRUE COLORS as a man and a husband.

Will you respond with ANGER? With DESPERATION?

This will show her that she is RIGHT in creating more distance from you.

That you are emotionally IMMATURE and UNSAFE.

Or, will you respond with UNDERST...

As a man, you think about sex a lot.

But, the WAY you’re thinking about it is causing problems.

Often men think that they can “earn” sex from their wife.

They try to earn sex “helping out” around the house. Cooking, cleaning, taking care of kids.

They try to earn sex by doing the love languages. Spending time with her, saying nice things to her, buying her gifts.

Basically, they try to create a sort of “debt” for their wife.

They think “...

You’re a high achieving man who is used to success in his life.

But now, your marriage is on the brink of failure.

Infidelity. Separation. Faith crisis. “I love you but I’m not in love with you.” Divorce talks or filing. Your wife’s interest in another man.

You want to FIX this and WIN HER BACK!

That has worked so well in many areas of your life…

As high achieving men, we’re used to fixing problems. And we’re good at it.

So, when our wife comes to us to talk about a problem, we naturally want to try and fix it.

And we’re frustrated because she doesn’t want to hear our (expert) advice.

In the book "The Noble Art of Seducing Women" by Kezia Noble, she identifies 3 types of men.

The nice guy.

The bad boy.

And the good man.

For us, we'll call the third the Strong Man.

These same guys show up in marriages.

The nice guy puts his wife above himself in ALL ways, hoping that someday she will return the favor with attention, appreciation and affection (sex).

The nice guy gets walked on. And hopes someday he will be a...

You want to show your wife you’re changing.

But you’re going about it all wrong.

It’s not about maximizing the good and minimizing the bad.

It’s not about making the “pros” outweigh the “cons.”

It’s about DIAGNOSING your problems and TREATING them.

It’s about being BRUTALLY HONEST about your shortcomings to yourself and your wife.

ONLY then can she start to trust you…

The movies, church, and society teach us to “be one” in a marriage.

But, we often misunderstand what this means.

We become TOO blended with our wife.

We become overly focused on “making her happy” and winning her approval (attention, appreciation and affection).

A good marriage is like a good meal.

Pasta and shrimp taste GREAT together.

But if you put them in a blender and drink it…

It doesn’t taste that great any more.

Resentment is a COMMON feeling in marriage.

But, most people don’t know where it comes from or what to do about it.

Overall, it comes from feeling like you are LOSING in your marriage…

Doing things you don’t really want to do…
