My wife and I have been together for 7 years, spent the past 4 years in constant turmoil, and the past 2 years with 3 different marriage counselors. We have spent literally thousands of dollars trying to get a grip on our relationship, only to watch it plummet faster.

Mort was able to accomplish in 1 1/2 hrs what 3 marriage counselors failed to do in 2 years. The assessments made us realize that maybe it wasn't ALL "their" fault after all, and the straight-forward but gentle approach in the tele-conferences lit the path to a recovery that we didn't think was possible.

I followed the program as the lone ranger. I listened and used the suggestions. It now seems so simple. In the beginning I was very leery. I just wanted you to know that everything has turned 180 degrees from “I love you but I’m not in love with you” and my wife wanting a separation to see below: Last night my wife bought me flowers and double stuffed oreos (My Favorite) She sat down and told me she loved me very much and was sorry she had not contributed her share to the relationship She told me I was a wonderful man She told me she could not imagine me not being in her life married to her.

This program is amazing. I think the people who have problems are the ones who aren't putting their all into trying to repair their relationship. I never buy anything on the internet with the idea of getting a refund. I bought the CD's and this changed the way both of us respond to eachother. With anything you get to help your relationship you have to take what you agree with and use what works for you as a couple. Our relationship is so much better because we both put the effort into this program. We would advise anyone to try it. Start with the book if you're not sure if it's for you!

Marriage Fitness Saved My Marriage!!

The Marriage Fitness Program works! When my husband said that our marriage was over, I was sure that nothing would be able to change his mind. But here we are 2 short months after our fateful “divorce conversation” happily planning our 8th wedding anniversary thanks to Mort Fertel!

Just reading the responses by those that posted a single star makes me understand why they failed. I personally went through it and it was amazing to me how predictable he made her responses out to be. He was practically on the money in how she would react if I changed my outlook and believe me that was hard on my part. So without sounding like a shill for the program, you gotta have something to get you out of what a divorce does to you - become negative, manipulative, vindictive maybe... all those negative emotions will never help to heal ANY relationship. So listening to Mort Fertel's seminars helped me over those feelings of self doubt and it seems to have succeeded where other things have failed. This was my third marriage and I didn't want to lose her. But it's an on going thing. So take it for what it's worth - I feel it was money well spent.

Today makes one month that my wife has been home after three months of separation. Thank you so much for your Marriage Fitness program. Not only did it change our marriage, it changed our entire way of life. After two affairs and an emotional affair, I thought I had lost my wife forever, but thanks be unto God, we "found" Mort Fertel. Just as when one becomes a new creature in Christ, old things pass away and all things become new; such was the case when we completed the Marriage Fitness program. Our old habits, fears, insecurities, and the manner in which we treated each other passed away; All things became NEW! We learned to put love first and to make our spouse and our marriage our highest priority. We strongly urge anyone needing help in any way with their marriage to enroll in the Marriage Fitness program.

It will change your life forever. It did ours!

I never imagined myself resorting to an internet self help program. But I tried everything else with my failing marriage and Mort’s program seemed promising. I realized that I had some HORRIBLE habits that were killing my relationship and I was totally pushing my husband away. Things now are on the mend and on the upswing and my relationship is slowly transforming into something new and infinitely more positive.

thank God. thank Mort!

My wife made a complete turnaround because of this program. not only did she decide not to file for divorce, but she's working on us now. and we're getting a lot better. thank God. thank Mort. i am so relieved. i was so scared.

at first my wife wasn't interested in us or in doing the program. so i joined the lone ranger track. after doing the lone ranger track for about 5 weeks my wife became interested in me and in doing the program with me.

Pros:
  • i saved my marriage
  • Cons:
  • you gotta do what he says for it to work.

    I can't believe it

    I really thought there was no chance. My husband went crazy, started behaving like I've never seen him before, and I found evidence of him being involved with another woman who was after him hard. He told me he just didn't want to be married anymore.

    I decided I wasn't going to just sit back and watch my life ruined. I decided I had to do something. So I joined MOrt's program, which based on my research was the most successful. Obviously, I did the lone ranger track. ONce I started listening to the cd's and teleconferences I started to feel better. At first, nothing changed, but at least I felt better. But then, after a few weeks, I started to see that what I was doing was making a difference. It took a couple of months and a lot of ups and downs, but basically as I look back I can see that what Mort told me to do in the program had exactly the effect he said it would and it worked. My husband stopped talking divorce, I could tell that the other woman was history, and he started treating me better.

    I feel we're out of the woods now and even starting to reconnect.

    I could have never done this without Mort's Marriage Fitness program. I feel lucky to have found the program. I decided to join the program because of some reviews I read online so I thought I would write one for others to read.

    Pros:
  • saved my marriage
  • Cons:
  • none

    I am beginning to succeed on reconnecting

    I did mort's program after my husband told me that he had a few affairs 0ver the last couple of years, and that he didn'T WANT TO BE MARRIED anymore. This hit me like a ton of bricks because I still love him, and realized I did not want to lose him. what a wake up call. i realized I ignored him for years so I decided to win his love back. Im started mort's program about 7 weeks ago, and said i would become the best wife possible... I am beginning to succeed on reconnecting with my spouse, and reconciling our marriage, and I am feeling good that we will feel the love that has been absent for almost a decade. NS.

    Pros:
  • all good
  • Cons:
  • no problems

    worked for me

    I first heard Mort Fertel interviewed on a NYC radio station where they were talking about marriage and divorce. I was encouraged to hear that he was advocating for marriage, even in tough situations. Mine was a tough situation. I looked into him further, signed up for his emails (they're great...he gives you a lot for free and you can learn a lot about his approach), and then when I realized that my situation needed all the help Mort could give I signed up for his main program, the boot camp. What can I say? Not only did being in the program calm my insanity, but it worked and really changed my life. My husband and I are doing well now, much closer, we go on dates, spend time together, talk, and he retracted the divorce papers. I'm very happy and I don't think I'd be here without the advice of Mort's program.

    The Best Marriage Help out There

    The Marriage Fitness program is the best marriage help out there. I should know. I wasted a lot of money trying everything.

    Counseling was a bomb. Wasted so much time. So many questions, but no answers. And then my wife bailed out of the process and the counselor then said there was nothing I could do. I learned in Mort's lone ranger program that that's not true, there was a lot I could do. I got answers and they were the answers I needed. I did what Mort recommended in the program and even though my wife didn't care at first, in the end, it really worked.

    I did most of the other online marriage stuff too. But all the other stuff and the video thing was bogus. A lot of these people love to talk, but I found that a lot of what's discussed isn't practical or relevant to my situation. But when I listened to MOrt's cd's and teleconferences I felt that he was talking about my situation exactly.

    Pros:
  • works
  • Cons:
  • nothing is perfect

    big help

    My husband grew up in a dysfunctional family. His brother and sister's marriage both ended in divorce. But his brother tried Marriage Fitness and said it was the best thing to try of anything out there. It didn't work for him so he got his money back. I figured since there's a guarantee I would give it a try. For us it worked. It's a long story, but Mort's program showed us how we were being dysfunctional and how to behave better, in ways that bring a happy marriage. At first it sounded a little unbelievable, but what can I tell you the stuff he says to do really works. I'm happy that my kids now we see us in a functional marriage.

    Recomended by covey

    This program was recommended by stephen covey. Anything recommended by the covey organization I trust. So I bought it. I was not disappointed. It worked miracles in my marriage after years of trying other things failed. The approach really is different than anything else out there. I would know, I tried it all.

    Pros:
  • Highly recommended by third party sources

    thankful and relieved

    just like mort says, it takes some time and it's not easy, but i have to say that his advice paid off. my husband came around just like mort said he would.

    i also have to say that it was refreshing to work with mort's office staff. very professional and helpful. i scheduled an additional private session which i needed due to a crisis. the combo of the program with the private session did the trick.

    i'm really thankful, and relieved.

    repeat customer

    I bought the Marriage Fitness program 2 years ago when my marriage was in trouble. Shortly after I bought it, I thought things between my husband and I got better, so I returned the program and got my money back. But I later learned that things in my marriage were not ok, we just put a bandaid on and didn't really solve our problems. So I got the Marriage Fitness program again. This time I really used it, went through all the materials, and did what Mort said to do. He really has great advice. YOu have to stick with it, but if you do it works. My husband totally responded. Not only was the advice helpful, but it was also really helpful to hear MOrt explain what to expect. It was amazing how he's able to predict what will happen in my situation; I guess he's seen the same things over and over, and it really helped me when it did happen because I was ready for it.

    My husband and I are good now...thanks to Mort's Marriage Fitness program.

    oh, I also tried the 5 cd set, but found that that wasn't enough... if you need serious marital help get the boot camp, that's what I did, I needed the full program.

    Marriage Saver

    I couldn't afford the program so I just bought the book and subscribed to the emails. What a difference in 2 short weeks. My wife was ready to walk out the door. She was done! We had barely spoken for almost 2 months and now we speak every day, touch everyday and spend all our free time together. She has not looked at the book but I have read it twice and I see a huge difference in how we interact. I have told her she can read the book anytime or if she has questions I would happily answer them but she seems happier with what I'm doing now. I know she will eventually read the book and join me completely in my efforts to put love first, give presence, move from me to we and save yourself. I can't thank Mort enough. I know without his help we would have been on our way to divorce after 28 years. You have to try it, it's work but it does make miracles happen. Kepp up the great work Mort and thanks again.

    Why pay $399 for a rewrite of MB!!!

    Wish I had found these comments before my husband bought this crap. It's certainly interesting to see the most recent review by Tasha's has the same Capital "O" keyboard problem that one of the other reviewers mentioned as indicative of fake reviews. Sure sounds like a lot of bullcrap fluff.

    As far as the program itself, my Husband ordered Mort Fertel's program, and we started the first week yesterday. I thought it was unreasonably expensive and honestly there appears to be nothing in it that MB didn't have (for FREE on their website...probably where Mort found it too), except a set schedule for implementation. (Fertel's concept that your Official Marital Problems exist largely because of a lack of intimate emotional attachment and connection, not vice-versa, is pretty much chapter and verse Harley gospel!) I guess the only thing about MB is that, as I recall, there isn't a schedule for people to gradually build new habits week by week; you had to figure that out on your own. Not sure the "scheduled implementation" approach is worth 399 farking dollars, though.

    I~We will actually try it for a few weeks as I'm hoping to get my husband to do something for our marriage. But, if I can talk my husband off the ledge without hurting his feelings by criticizing his purchase, we will be returning it in the 30 day window and telling Mort where he can shove it.

    Like the others who bought this marriage fitness course, mort fertel and his staff also refused to honour a refund when it didn't work for me as a 'lone ranger', which is what one of his staff told me that most people who sign up are. Their terms do make it impossible to use and return within their time period, especially for someone like me who lives in another country. I didn't realise they would be so rigid and unbending in my situation, but they have been. It took 2 full weeks to arrive, they require you to use it for a while, then have the 'laser session' before you can return it, which they kept me waiting for for quite a while, and in my case, I would have had to do all of that in about one day and then send it back the next day in order to get a refund. This guy is only interested in the money. I suspect he isn't as busy as he wants people to believe he is, and is also not the kind of person he wants people to believe he is. It does have a lot of religious references, as another person mentioned, which this guy clearly doesn't adhere to in his business practices, and while on the surface it seems like a good thing to try, I really do believe that it requires the participation of both spouses who have a commitment to wanting to repair and restore their marriage. Mort fertel says himself that he and his wife decided together to put their problems aside and work on their relationship together the night before his wife was going to see a divorce lawyer. This is a very expensive course, more so for me due to bank charges, customs and related charges, and it didn't work at all, it just made things worse. My husband had already moved out several months before I found this and doesn't want to try to work things out. When I finally had what was supposed to be the 10-minute laser session, which was totally useless, it took me 3 international phone calls, the first 2 because I got an answering machine, then when I finally did get a person I was kept on hold, and when I told mort fertel himself that it wasn't working and I wanted to send it back for a refund, he fobbed me off with telling me that was an administrative thing that he had nothing to do with. It is his business, after all. This guy has turned out to be a major phony, just in it for the money, luring a lot of desperate people into buying something that has little or no hope of working for them in a situation that has deteriorated to the point of one person moving out and staying away and adds insult to injury. Just listening to all of the Q & As, most of the people are in pain and this has not been working for them. When I spoke to fertel, he blamed me for it not working. I have also been left in a desperate financial situation with my husband's departure, could ill afford this, and mort fertel and his staff don't care whether it works or not as long as they get your money, which they have no intention of refunding under any circumstances. This guy has lost all credibility with me, and I also have lost the initial respect I had for him. If you are on your own and your spouse has already left you, the odds of this working are slim to none. They give you a lot of false hope and empty promises, and then you lose your money as well as your spouse. This was the approximate price as applying for the initial divorce decree, which I had hoped doing this course would prevent. Now I'm going to have to pay out the same amount for a divorce.

    correction to my last post

    When I wrote the review, the site asked me when I had puchased the product. I erroneously entered the wrong date, by a long shot. Don't see anyway to login and edit my own previous post and I hope that the site operator doesn't remove my post. I dug out the receipt and the correct purchase date was 1/15/08, the price was $415.99.

    Writers aren't professionals

    Welcome to the internet where self-help writers just do a little research on marriage, apply a little common sense, wrap it up with some slick graphics and self-aggrandizing testimonials (generated by commission based bloggers) and you've got Mort Fertel's Marriage Fitness. He's only 47 years old (in 2012) and published this material in 2005 when he was what, 40? Married how long, 15 years tops? It appears he apparently decided to research marriage when him and his wife had troubles in their marriage after the tragic loss of several children. Sad and horrible but as far as I can tell, he has no experience personally let alone clinically with infidelity (his largest most desperate target market). Yet he claims he's "a world authority on the psychology of relationships". How?....because he said so???? Until 2005 the internet had never even heard of the guy. He's not a counselor, therapist or even a psychologist (let alone a clinical psychologist). IMO, you are better off taking advice from your sister than this guy and if you are fighting for your marriage due to infidelity.....his advice not to expose the affair (because doing so is wrong and/or too negative) is just plain idiotic. In addition, he doesn't advocate a faithful spouse telling the affair partner's spouse. In my opinion, the other person's spouse is entitled to the truth about their life and Mort's advocating secrecy only protects, fuels and unnecessarily prolongs adulterous relationships. Why promote enabling behaviors? Because it makes for good sales by appealing to faithful spouses whom commonly and desperately fear taking [necessary] action. My peer advice...find a real life MARRIED counselor or minister/pastor with experience AND a history of success (before you hire him/her ask for referrals of success stories and check them out because a bad marriage counselor will make things much worse) or, at least make sure the online author you take advice from has credentials, a good marriage him/herself AND clinical experience. I made a mistake buying and reading this book 3 years ago...but faithful spouses rarely complain because their unaware that the advice (if they made the mistake of following it) really made things worse. It's not like the book made my wife cheat. I just wish had my money back (and he didn't have it to further promote this crap)

    Pros:
  • Mort's picture gives the appearance of authority
  • Cons:
  • He is an authority at convincing unsuspecting desperate spouses to give him their money

    WARNING - Shameful & Dishonorable Business Practices

    I called to return the program and they said it must be back in their office within 30 days. So first of all, it's not a true 30 day money-back guarantee where you get a full 30 days to review the material. Then I said fine I'll overnight the material and I liked to schedule the required 10 min apptmt to get my money-back. They then told me his schedule was too full in the next 2 days before my 30 days was up so I was out of luck. His money-back guarantee is totally shameful. You don't treat people that way if your honest. I'm glad he helped some of you but his business practices our dishonorable. He should just say you can take my program but if you don't like it, there is no money back guarantee and at least then he would be telling the truth.

    Pros:
  • He has some positive points about helping your marriage like focusing on the good vs the problems to gain positive momentum.
  • Cons:
  • To me his ads came across like the one program could be the solution to your problems until you actually pay for his bootcamp. Then every session he's constantly pushing his private one-on-one sessions that are $500 per hour or his home visits that are even more.

    This program has potential for people in a marriage that have some interest in making it work. Like others have said, they have no consideration for the fact that you are already in one of the worst stages of your life, then they simply dismiss you and hide behind their terms. I did return it, but not within 30 days of my order, but of my receiving it. I did do the 1-on-1 session. It is next to impossible to follow the advice of the program and schedule that "laser" session so that it will be of any use and then still have time to return the materials if you decide it is not for you. There is also an unadvertised, religious leaning that seemed inappropriate, if for no other reason than secular customers might choose otherwise if it was known before purchasing.

    They also did not ship the materials overnight as promised. My label is clearly chosen as 2nd day by them.

    I am a Lone Ranger Track. My husband has an emotional affair with another woman. When I was told by my husband about his affair, I was so shocked. I found Marriage Fitness from internet and signed in January. After attending the live seminars and Q-A conferences, all of sudden, I found out there are lots of small things that I never pay attention to that have done big damage on my marriage. I tried the ways you taught in the seminars. After weeks of effort,when I almost gave up, my husband finally opened his heart to me and told me what went wrong in our marriage and what lead him to seek comfort from outside of marriage.

    Thanks you for everything. Now there is hope.

    The Marriage Fitness program has saved my marriage too! Me and my husband have been separated for 5 months and were heading to a divorce. Then I had the chance to do Mr Fertel's brilliant program which can change what everyone else thinks is impossible to change! I can honestly say that I feel privileged for living in the same era with him and for being able to do his program from Greece where I live. I wouldn't have been able to save my marriage without his help.

    Mort's Program Works!

    The strategies and techniques that Mort teaches in the Marriage Fitness Program are practical and effective and the money spent on his program is well worth it. Before I found Marriage Fitness, my situation seemed so hopeless. But after going through Mort’s course, I learnt how to get over past hurt, rebuild the trust in my relationship and love my wife like never before. Thank you Mort Fertel!!!

    It is certain that his program works.

    When we started the program, we only did it to prove to ourselves that we had done everything we could to save the marriage. Justin had already decided to end the marriage. I was desperate to do whatever i could…we then, at that point, started searching for help and each time, we left feeling worse. There was no intimacy at all.

    Mort’s program stopped the battles and taught us a new way to look at things. It was the first time we felt like there was really some hope. We were so tired and confused; we barely had enough mental strength to go on. Mort’s program gave us that strength.

    We both gained new insight to who we were individually. We learned to be patient, and open to the fact that we were changing. Mort showed us how to respect and learn each other's need for individuality and how to give each other the space we needed to grow.

    Our children have learned that marriage is not to be taken for granted. It is precious. They are so proud of us. As yet, our marriage is not perfect, but it is stable and for the first time in yrs the lines of communication are open so we can solve situations rationally.

    Mort gives you the tools you need to rebuild your relationship. Thanks so much Mort.

    This is the only program that works!!

    I second John R.’s post!! It is pretty clear why the people who posted the single star failed..…In order to get long lasting results in your relationship, it only makes sense that you have to invest time and effort.

    The Marriage Fitness Program is the best and only program you should to try if you are having trouble in your marriage. Previously, I have tried traditional marriage counseling and many of other marriage help products and programs that are available. But none came close to Marriage Fitness. Within weeks of beginning the program I began seeing positive changes in our relationship and now my wife and I have developed a loving, intimate and fulfilling relationship. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone going through marriage trouble- this program is heaven sent!

    Upstanding and Outstanding

    not only did Mort's Marriage Fitness program save my marriage after my wife had an affair and threatened divorce, but i have to say that he is a consummate professional and a genuinely wonderful man. i had a chance to talk with personally during my "laser" session and i felt he really cared. this is a man on mission to save marriages and he does a fine job. mort fertel is a modern day Ghandi. more people should approach their work and conduct themselves as he does. i, for one, am going to try.

    I know there are many things I could change in my marriage to make it work. However, as time passes by reality and dreams widens. I need help from the outside. It's timely that I found Mort's marriage fitness program. It has been my shining armor ever since.

    Pros:
  • The program is easy and anyone can get hold of the essence with flying colors.

    lone ranger track really works

    I first found mort fertel online after i discovered my husband was having an affair. i was desperate so i read everything on his site and signed up for his emails. i'm glad i did. at first, i didn't want to to buy the whole program because it was expensive. so i bought the book. the book is good, but it wasn't enough. it's really just an intro to mort's whole plan. i finally bit the bullet and bought the whole program. i'm so glad i did. it was the best money i've ever spent. you can't compare it to the book. i really needed the lone ranger track and that's not in the book it's only in the program. it took a few months, but using mort's program and practicing what he preaches brought my husband around. his affair ended (just as mort said it would) and we started reconnecting. eventually i switched to the duo track (my husband joined me in the program) and we used the program together. it really helped us rebuild trust and love.

    Pros:
  • lone ranger track of the program works
  • Cons:
  • just the book is not enough for serious problems

    I did not participate in his program, but did buy his book. This is no scam but sound advice on how to connect with your partner and an insight in to why most couples disconnect. He also states, quite rightly, that marriage councilors focus on the negative which makes the experience unpleasant in the long term. His approach is to move forward and repair, which is much more positive. It may even work.

    I would recommend this program

    I would recommend this program. Mort says that a marriage doesn't get into these messes overnight. In my case, it was messed up for years. But we knew things could be better and so we hung on. There wasn’t a week though without multiple fights. I was angry, frustrated, and felt hopeless. We loved each other but just couldn’t show it. Eventually my wife moved out. I was pissed. I thought we should try counseling or something first. She said she would try counseling but that it would take a miracle. I searched and didn’t find anyone that I thought could help us. Then I found Mort’s Marriage Fitness program. First I signed up for the free emails. I was impressed with what I was reading. My wife signed up too. I wanted to find out more about the program so I bought the less expensive 5 cd program. After listening I believed I found the person who could deliver us a miracle. At that point I bought the main program. I asked my wife to jon me. She said “yes!” I’ll warn you that it’s not always easy to follow the program. It takes work. Mort even says that his advice is not easy, but it works. He’s right. It’s not easy. But it does work! Our results have been unbelievable in 7 weeks. We haven’t fought in three weeks. May not sound like a big deal, but for us it’s a miracle. Now we’re spending quality time together, we talk, we can’t leave each other alone. It feels like we just got married. My wife and I agree on one thing for sure now—Mort is the smartest person we’ve ever met.

    Marriage Fitness

    Great book, has been VERY informative for me. As to the return policy, that I can not speak about. But I can say this, if you are on the fence about buying the $400 program. Go the route I took, buy the $10 book! Same info for $390 less. It is much easier to decide that the program works for yourself at a $10 investment. If you want then you can buy the whole package. Mort is NO SCAM ARTIST.

    Pros:
  • Great information
  • Easy to understand
  • Can begin to work on your problems right away
  • Cons:
  • You have to be willing to do the work as it's not going do it for you

    Sage advice

    If I were putting together a group of life advisers Mort Fertel would be on the list. This guy is like a sage. I never met someone so wise before. The advice I received in the program not only saved my marriage but changed my life.

    my wife and I weren't talking

    My wife And I Were Not Talking

    Last year my wife and I weren't talking. We basically decided to live together without love or intimacy. When I read Mort's first few emails I said to myself, "I"m not making the first move with my wife." I always made the first move to mend fences...I was done with that.

    I read Every Word Mort wrote in his emails.

    Then I bought the program, listened to the CDs, listened intently to every word on the teleconferences and I got it! He speaks the truth. I knew it but I got off track somewhere somehow.

    Then I asked my wife if she would go out to dinner with me. I think she was expecting me to hammer her like I used. But I followed the program's advice.

    Long story short, we're back on track. And she tries now too. We make each other important in our lives. One night after dinner we went for a walk in the neighborhood and the flood gates opened, big talk, lots of tears, a wonderful discussion. We totally connected.

    We still get distracted sometimes with word, the kids, etc. but now we have Mort's guidelines to get us back on track, and we do.

    I can't thank Mort, his program, and his staff enough. Not sure where I'd be if not for them.

    I recommend the program. It works!

    my stamp of approval

    I'm a spiritual mentor to thousands of people in my community and I personally know many people whose marriages were saved using Mort's program. After many years of hearing about the Marriage Fitness program and talking to people who recommend it, I happen to meet Mort at a wedding; I recognized him right away, a little more gray around the ears but he looks the same. It was an honor to meet him; he struck me as a humble man of God. I've been recommending Mort's program for years and will continue to do so.

    happy

    Like most people, I found this program very helpful during a horrible time in my life. Mort gave me the advice and encouragement I needed. I did my best to follow it and, thank God, it worked out, we got through it and our marriage is back on track.

    I also had a friend who did the program and she liked it also and thought it was the best one out there. Her marriage had to end and she had to stop the program because her husband was abusive, so she took Mort up his money back guarantee. I'm not sure what all the chatter is about the money back guarantee; my friend got her money back no problem. I heard that sometimes competitors or disgruntled people post negative reviews to try to hurt companies they don't like and I wonder if that's what's happened to Mort in the case of these bad reviews. I think he's totally straight and honest, that was my impression.

    everything was falling apart

    my life was falling apart. my husband was drifting farther and farther away from me and my kids. he had already filed for divorce and was dating when i found mort fertel and his marriage fitness program. i first heard about him on the radio and then he was recommended to me by a therapist who is a friend of mine and said that lots of her clients used mort's program with success. first i signed up for his free emails and then joined the boot camp, which is what really saved my life. once i started listenign the cd's and teleconferences i felt like someone finally understand what i was going through and finally i got practical advice about what to do that made a real difference. at first my husband could have cared less, but mort talked about how to deal with that too, and i worked through it using his instruction. it took about 3 months until things started to turn around. i could have never done it without mort's program. awesome! saved my life. thank you.

    I wish I could have found these reviews a long time ago

    I have now been divorced for 3 years, was married for 27 years. We did the Marriage Fitness program. I have to say that after all this time has gone by, it has been interesting to read the comments of people who seem to have similar opinions of Mort Fertel as I. At first I thought the program was working, but less than a year later my spouse seemed to "forget" everything we learned. There was some good material but for the price it wasn't anything at all that I was expecting. Also, I read a comment on this thread that Mort plagiarized Willard Harley's material. I have also read Willard Harley's books and totaly agree. I was expecting the teleconferences to be more in sink with the overall pace (the workbook) of the program. It wasn't at all. Mort's advice on how to rebuild trust after an affair is way off base. The only way is to be totally transparent about where you are and what you are doing at all times. Mort thought that was wrong.

    I remember when the package came in the mail and I looked it over, at that moment I felt I had been ripped off. But by that point I had persuaded my spouse to do it so there was no turning back. I know that I had looked for Mort's book at the library and couldn't find it. I wished I would have gone to a book store and bought it because if I had read the book first I would never had bought the program. I would have thought "this guy's a crackpot". Willard Harley's material was much better, as was James Dobson and Bob Huzienga.

    In closing I agree, Mort Fertel is an unscrupulous business man who no doubt by now has made a fortune taking advantage of desperate people who are emotionaly vulnerable. Also on his website he says that he has given expert advise on NBC and Fox News. I never found any evidence that any of that is true. Like I said, back then I couldn't find anything negative about him on the internet. Only canned testimonials written by either his staff or himself. I'm glad to have met you all, I feel a little better about it now knowing that I'm not the only one who feels this way.

    Flooding with Fake Reviews

    Seems that Penny was right about the fake chatter. Since her warning in December, it appears Mort's crew has followed up with ten more 5 star fake reviews and a plethora of positive & negative ratings favoring Mort. Besides all sounding a bit like canned testimonials by the author and his staff it is tellingly suspicious that reviewers Dave, Nelly and Tara all have problems with random capital "O"'s appearing in their reviews (bad keyboard maybe) but no exclamation points whereas Danielle, Kimberly, AllanC, Kevin, Arnold, and Tricia all use a lot of exclamation points in similar manners throughout their reviews but never a random

    capital "O".

    Kimberly even went to the extreme of copying her "review" word for word and posting it as KAGreen the next day on a marriage forum. Interestingly that thread she posted on had been trying to honestly evaluate Mort's program until it was discovered the poster that prompted the whole discussion about Mort was actually a troll with a fake story there simply trying to puff up and sell the program himself as a commission based "affiliated marketer".

    Apart from that, the parts of the book I have read myself, in my opinion, are worthless, if not damaging. There is nothing original or unique that a few minutes researching real professionals free information on the internet won't tell you. The only apparent "secret" is that Mort Fertel, Marriage Fitness and MarriageMax are an orchestrated scam masterminded by the seemingly wistful entrepreneur in the picture above who is literally just giving us all the bird ==> go look - it's really ironic.

    WARNING - MORT IS A TOTAL SCAM ARTIST!

    Order# 164173430 July 2010

    There are NO EXCEPTIONS to their insane refund

    policies. You MUST talk to Mort for your private

    1-on-1 session before you return the product.

    The product is poorly recorded and the advice is predictable and stupid. When I contacted

    his secretary Adina to return the product I was told I had to schedule my 10 minture phone call with Mort or I could not return the product for a refund. The only session Mort had available was of course on the 29th day of the trial period at 3:30pm. Mort was a total jerk on the phone and told me he had noting to do with the returns which made me mad that I had to wait to talk to him for no reason before returning the product. I promptly shipped the package back

    the next moring and got confirmation from UPS that it was received on day 31. Needless to say I was surprised when I received the package I mailed them came back to me two weeks later. The next day they charged my credit card for the 2nd payment. To keep them from charging me the 3rd payment I had AMEX block them. It took

    me 6 months and a lot of letter writing and phone calls with AMEX because they told AMEX I had not met the terms of thier return policy. I'm happy to say AMEX settled this dispute in my favor. The jerk is still emailing me trying to

    get his 3rd payment so now I'm blocking his email

    too. This experience was a NIGHTMARE!

    Beware of Fake Chatter

    I see Jim's review & couldn't agree more. He & I discussed this book at length on our private Christian Marital Recovery Forum. Unfortunately, we were the only 2 that had bought Mort's crap. What's really odd is that after 2 years of disinterest here 3 new comments appear this week supposedly from 3 completely independent persons with positive comments about marriage fitness while 10 persons have given Jim's review a negative "helpful" rating. Seems Mort's office staff or his gang of affiliated marketers who get paid to generate traffic to his sales site do a bang up job making sure potential victims don't see or read negative comments. If u have time go to the bottom of marriagemax.com homepage and click "affiliate" 2 see for yourself how much these idiots get paid to sell Mort's amateur plagiarized junk (he just unwisely combined & reworded Dr Harley, Dr. Hendrix & Dr Weiner-Davis's actually professionally created & researched programs). You can't trust any reviews of his materials. I even found a few giving glowing reviews containing minimally disguised paid "affiliated" links to mf.com in them. This is shameful. Mort should use his Business degree for good not to market crap to vulnerable betrayed spouses desperate for help. Please review free information on the web (like divorcebusters or marriagebuilders) or join a forum (other than talkaboutmarriage where they shill Mort's program for revenue) first and talk/chat with real persons before spending ANY money on silly incompetent marriage recovery materials from these internet self-help snake oil salespersons whom know nothing about adultery.

    Fertel's advice to two of my clients was terrible

    I am a licensed marriage & family therapist, and have been for 30 years. Several female clients came to see me after "working Mort Fertel's Marriage Fitness Program." One was told by her MF counselor to tolerate her husband's flagrant, on-going infidelity and "work on being the best wife you can be." Not only was this damaging to whatever was left of her self-esteem, it exposed her teenage daughter and son to their father's shameless behavior. Another client was "working the program" for almost a year, and by the time I saw her with her husband, he had drifted so far away (while she "worked on herself"), that there was no way back.

    If you want expert help with your marriage, I recommend going to a professional with advanced training. As far as I can tell, Mort Fertel has great marketing, but no professional qualifications to practice as a therapist.

    Pros:
  • NONE
  • Cons:
  • Not a professional. Should not be presenting himself as an expert. Terrible advice
  • particularly to women.

    Bought this and returned it within the 30 day period. My husband left me soon after it arrived with 8 to suppport and care for and no job. I had no way to know he was leaving and I would have no money. Did not have time to schedule the 1 on 1 "laser" session and get it back on time. They paid to send it back and tell me I couldn't return it. I called an pleaded with them because I have no income now. All they could say was sorry our policy is clear, you shouldn't have ordered it if you couldn't pay for it. Mort Fertel is only interested in your money, he couldn't care less about your circumstances.

    This is a very expensive self-help course. Be forewarned: the terms you agree to when you order this course make it impossible to obtain a refund. And a year later, just when you've forgotten the bad experience you had with this company, they will charge your credit card, without authorization, in an attempt to "renew" your service.
