Ask A Counselor
We offer this free service to help guide your next steps. We don’t engage in one-on-one or couples counseling.
Sometimes we can directly answer a simple question but usually, the counselor will suggest with of our books or that you take the course for women, or men.
Our founder, Paul Friedman, founded TMF after a successful career as a divorce mediator. Our mission is to teach marriage, how to be incredibly happy and enjoy the joy that comes with the right knowledge and right effort.
Those who are learning our principles and are taking personal responsibility to fill their marriage with ever-increasing happiness, and ever-expanding love will succeed in ways never imagined.
We do not believe in nor provide traditional marriage counseling. It is our experience and firm position that the western psychology-based approach harms marriages by teaching destructive ideas (like confrontation), and wastes time and money through its ineffectiveness. Many of our course clients came from marriage counselors.
Is Your Question Already Covered?
When you write A Counselor
If your question is still unanswered, please use these criteria when writing your question:
- Ask a question. Be short and sweet. We don’t need “histories”.
- Frame your question in a positive way. We want to help you improve your marriage.
(e.g. How can my spouse and I cultivate more harmony?)
- Ask about our principles, or products, which you can find under Products or Learn in the menu above.
(e.g. Asking about points discussed in the recent podcast is fine. Asking how to confront or change your spouse, or for us to agree with your condemnation of them go against our principles, and you won’t receive a response telling you what you want to hear.)
Please understand that if you are not familiar with the principles we teach from reading one of our books, taking a course, or consuming many of our free articles, videos, and podcasts, then the most likely recommendation you will receive is to read a book or take a course.
We appreciate any support for this service by way of a donation or the purchase of a product, but neither is required. We do not prioritize those who can contribute to our work.
