Why did I decide to review Mend The Marriage?
I found out about Mend The Marriage via a friend. She couldn’t stop talking about it and suggested I give it a shot. The program had helped her and her husband so much, that they had even renewed their vows.
I was interested in journeying through the Mend The Marriage after her trustworthy feedback of the digital program. At times it was tough because Mend The Marriage tells couples home truths — many that you may not want to hear.
I certainly didn’t want to hear them!
But if you stick with the program and complete it in its entirety, you will come out the other end a better person and hopefully a better partner.
I’m human, which means I’m flawed. And admittedly it’s hard for me to take responsibility and not place eternal blame on my partner. It’s about letting go of always being right and learning to be balanced in my perspectives.
Several months after taking Brad Browning’s program, I believe my marriage has been saved, and it’s made me a better person to live with too. I no longer become outraged about every little thing my partner does because I spend a lot of my life these days (due to Mend The Marriage) focused on my own self.
Thanks to Browning’s advice, I’m focusing more on self-improvement now. I workout five days a week, I meditate and I eat clean healthy foods.
Because I feel so good mentally and physically, I am a much better wife to my husband. I am there for him emotionally and sexually.
In a nutshell, this relationship-stuff between my husband and I is really working!
I am grateful I got to put Brad Browning’s valuable relationship advice into practice. It was confronting at first and often I wanted to throw in the towel. But thankfully I stuck with it and passed the finishing line.
But I’m not the only one who is happy I completed Mend The Marriage — my husband is elated. He no longer finds himself the target of my anger or agitation. Our days are harmonious.
What is this online course about?
Mend The Marriage was created to reverse divorce. It’s a manual for both men and women who are navigating unions that no longer work.
The online course covers sex, intimacy, anger, jealousy and so forth. It teaches couples how to recover from these symptoms that are often the result of a stagnant relationship.
The ‘ABCD method’ on which the course is built around teaches couples how to push through resentment and negative memories via four stages.
Learning how to forgive is another paramount section of the course, which Browning focuses quite intently on to aid a couple’s recovery.
Below is an introduction to the ‘ABCD method’ which is the basis of the Mend The Marriage program:
Accept the situation
As simplistic and self-explanatory as this stage sounds, one would be amazed at how many individuals are in denial about their relationships.
Browning teaches couples that acceptance is always the first stage before they will be able to move forward. This means letting go of blame and taking responsibility for your part in the breakdown of the relationship. It means looking after yourself, so you can be your best when talking to your partner, (or former partner).
During this stage, Browning talks about healthy living, positive thinking and not beating up on one’s self.
This means getting quality sleep, good nutrition and cardio.
If you are unable to look after yourself — you will have little chance of being able to ‘look after’ your relationship. People often go on angry emotional rampages during relationship breakdowns — which is the worst thing they can do.
Browning instructs couples to step back, take a deep breath and make a smarter choice.
Commit to change
This section of the program is about sticking with the positive instead of returning to negative thoughts.
It’s easy to practice healthy habits short term but these changes need to be long-term in order to receive positive benefits. So it’s a continuation of stage two.
Human beings are drawn to positivity. Be a positive person, get some new hobbies and be the person your ex partner wants to get back with.
Dedicating yourself to the task
This stage is about upfront honesty, not playing mind games and continuing to be your best self throughout this painful and uncomfortable time. Come clean, admit your errors and tell your partner what you want.
But once you’ve laid your cards on the table, it’s time to step away and let them come to you. You can’t enforce another to feel how you want them to feel. You have to be open to letting go if you don’t receive the desired outcome.
What does the program include?
The Mend The Marriage online course consists of a 200+ page eBook, a four-hour audio course, a 7-part video series, worksheets to assist couples PLUS 3 free bonuses. It’s what I would call fully comprehensive — there is very little missing. It covers the full gamut of mending your marriage.
The extra bonuses
Money Matters Guide
There is nothing that ruins marriages more than financial problems.
How many arguments in a marriage are about finance? It can be so draining — both emotionally and sexually.
Brad Browning uses this guide to help couples with festering finance issues, so you don’t hate each other, so you don’t stop being intimate and so you don’t lose your sanity.
The Infidelity Survival guide
Trust and faithfulness are the bedrock of marriage, or so they say.
But let’s be honest, in a world full of options, fidelity and faithfulness are not easy for either sex. This guide is the ultimate must-read for those who find both problematic.
Browning teaches couples not to assume their other half is having an affair, as you could be dead-wrong. He also reveals that most affairs overall go undetected, so you may think you’re in a happy marriage when you actually aren’t.
Facts are indeed facts!
And finally, just because your partner cheats on you sexually, doesn’t necessarily mean that he/she doesn’t love you. Often a loss of intimacy in relationships can lead to adultery, which doesn’t have anything to do with you as a person.
Children and Divorce eBook
Divorce is really tough on kids and can affect them through adolescence and adulthood.
This thoughtful eBook takes couples through the stages of divorce and how that correlates with the emotional impact on children. Brad also talks about how parents can often play out victim scenarios.
No parent wants their divorce or temporary break-up to psychologically affect their children for life. Browning teaches couples how to avoid that tragic outcome.
- Unlike many relationship courses which are targeted towards women, this online course is designed for both women and men, as it should be!
- It comes with a 60-day money back guarantee
- The course is easy-to-read and easy to put into practice
- The online course in its entirety includes an eBook, videos, audio and a bagful of bonuses.
- It outlines every possible marriage hurdle you can think of and urges couples to become aware of their failings in the relationship
- No need to fork out thousands of dollars and see a shrink
- This online course is only available in a digital format which is really unfortunate for people who prefer to read tangible books or people who don’t have access to the internet or aren’t tech savvy
- Some of the advice offered by Browning is often generalised and laid out in simple terms. Great in theory but perhaps not in practice. Many marriages have layers of deep-seated issues. I don’t know if Browning’s advice would be helpful for more complicated issues.
Does Mend The Marriage Work?
Mend The Marriage will help couples who are willing to put the work in. There’s most certainly some interesting insights in this online program which could help you change damaging behaviors.
The program is also good at making individuals take responsibility for their own actions which I believe is incredibly useful for long term relationship recovery.
Miracles certainly started to occur in my own marriage when I was journeying through the program because I was no longer playing the blame-game and identifying as a victim. Victimhood is a very dangerous narrative as Browning continuously points out.
Being a victim literally gets you nowhere.
Implementing changes within relationships and sticking to them can be hard but if you’re committed to improving your relationship for the better then Browning’s expert advice can no doubt assist.
Mend The Marriage demonstrates narratives which often unfold in unsuccessful marriages. The online course examines ways to fix problems that arise in a relationship. Browning’s advice is a mighty weapon for men and women trying to mend their brokenness.
The online course may not be the same as having a one-on-one session with a counselor or a relationship psychologist but it’s still a worthy addition for any marriage that is slowly tearing apart.
The two-month money back guarantee ensures the purchaser of the course is covered, if they don’t like it or it personally doesn’t work for them.
Obviously no book, online course or session with a psychologist can ensure your marriage will be saved. Sometimes relationships really are irreparable and it’s intelligent to move on.
But if you do feel that there is still a shred of hope and you’re up for trying with your partner — then Mend The Marriage would be a great course for you.
