Here’s a sneak preview into episode 1:
In this episode we meet our three couples and two experts who will be part of the Saving our Marriage journey. Before going into the house, they have to tell their friends and family about their decision to be part of the process of working on the health of their marriages.
When the couple’s first enter the Saving our Marriage house, they meet our experts individually so that Paul and Ilze can understand what their challenges are and the depth of their situation. After which, they take part in a group session, where Paul introduces them to the Apology Conversation which is the first step in their 13 step programme.
This episode ends on a high note, as couples are made aware of what they have done to contribute to the breakdown of their marriage. They are also given a task, which is to go home, and sincerely apologies for all the wrongs they have done.
