Four engaged couples have been living in The Dr. Phil House to determine whether or not to marry. The last day approaches as the couples are put to one more test. Dr. Phil gives one person from each pair a "bump in the road" to see how their partner responds to an unfortunate turn of events. Donning a pregnancy suit, Lacey surprises Kalin with the news that she’s pregnant with someone else’s child. Steve is made to look older and obese. Lisa loses her good looks as she’s made to look like she’s living on the streets. And, Tim is in a wheelchair and tells Lilly he won’t be able to take care of her like he used to. Don’t miss the surprising – and not so surprising – reactions. Then, in a final meeting, the couples learn what Dr. Phil thinks are their biggest challenges as partners. Find out who has the hardest time with Dr. Phil’s relationship diagnosis and leaves the room in tears. Finally, Dr. Phil reveals some amazing prizes for the winners of the teamwork challenge. As some rejoice, others don’t handle the disappointment well. Plus, Dr. Phil gives an update on his guests since they’ve left The House. Are they all still headed for the altar? Tell us what you think!

Find out what happened on the show.

"...I'm making a general statement."

Quote From: flthomcat

If s/he did it TWICE, who's the common denominator? (as Dr. Phil would say).  It take 2 to tango. Both people are responsible for making a relationship work.


Marriages are supposed to last a lifetime. They are supposed to be committments before God, if people are Christian. And it seems SO many people want big church weddings these days:)


Too bad most of us humans spend more time working on our careers and planning our social lifes than we do working on our human relationships. I'm not directing this to you or the poster; I'm making a general statement. With our country's high divorce rate, you KNOW there's a sad problem...

"Marriages are supposed to last a lifetime."  No offense but as a christian, this is an  unrealistic xpectation.  catholicism for one, is against divorce, particularly those who are devout catholics.  I know a man who has chosen to stay married to his spouse despite verbal abuse and alcoholism.  He has said he would never divorce her and I say....more fool him.  Many catholics do get divorced.  As to other religions, I don't know.  If there is abuse of any kind in a couple, then divorce is the best way if problems can't be worked out. 

If all couples lived according to christian principles, then we'd be a homogenous society....incredibly dull.

There a multiple reasons for divorce, church weddings or civil ceremonies.   To stay married until death, while that's possible and doable for millions, for others, it's not their reality.  Best to get a divorce, move on and be happy than stay in a miserable relationship.

good show

 Dear Dr.Phil i think Dr. Phil's House is a great idea for any couples who are willing to get married or even for all singles. This is a good chance for everybody to watch and learn from it, it's an eye opening. I wish i could watch what is happening daily online, but i'm lucky to watch the program everyday from MBC 4 . I want to thank you again.

self respect

I couldnt help my heart sinking when i saw Lacey's pain today. Nobody should be made to feel like that. Kalin's behavior is unacceptable to another human being, woman or man. Its straight up bullying, its destrutive- and cant be dressed up. Sorry just wouldnt cut it for me, id have to be gone. And then to have the audacity to criticize her during the wheel changing challenge which she was winning anyway, and he'd already just seen himself acting like thre biggest fool! - its like learn why dont you!?! Kalin really needs to get a grip, fast, then get over himself. He should also realise he is taking for granted a stunning young lady with a caring nature which is flipping hard to come by! Dont keep pushing all this away to make way for your casual womanising persona, its very transparent-so not appealing anyway, & thats coming from a young female. You'll be lucky if you dont push Lacey away so much she dissappears.
