(Original Air Date: 03/05/13) Kim says she recently discovered that for the past five years, her husband, Mike, has been pretending to go to work at high-profile jobs, but in reality, he’s been playing video games in the basement and sleeping in his car. She says Mike even convinced her to quit her job of 18 years to move their family to Germany for his new employment opportunity -- that never existed. Mike admits that he lies so often that he can’t even keep track of the stories he's told. Why has he been carrying out this deceit for so long? And, is there anything else he’s hiding? Kim says she never suspected Mike was lying to her -- but looking back, were there warning signs she might have missed? And, can this marriage be saved? Plus, Dr. Phil shares tips from his best-selling book, Life Code: The New Rules for Winning in the Real World, to help Kim stop being victimized and become victim-wise!

Find out what happened on the show.

I feel bad for him, I feel bad for her too but he served his country only to come home and not be able to get a job!! Thats just horrible!! He risked his life for his family his country and couldnt get a job!! Thank you Dr.Phil for helping him, hopefully the treatment they both get will work wonders for them!!

Now that re-runs are being aired I, too, would appreciate post-scripts on current status. 

My interest in results of evaluations by the PNP Center continues, as well.

We realize that these are not "60 minute cures", so information on follow-throughs would be so educational.

Every time the book is mentioned someone comes on here not to participate in a positive way or to bring anything new to the conversation, but just to complain about Life Code.  Talk about a copycat mentality not to mention distracting as hell to those of us DO wish to take part in these discussions.  Read the book or don’t; who cares.  Besides, as they say ignorance is bliss.  The very fact that they haven’t read the book and never will indicates that they’ve completely missed the point of the entire show.

Wow! That was me ten years ago.  I married my ex husband at 25 and three years later, I started having a feeling he wasn't being honest with me.  Our sex life wasn't the same.  I tried to talk to him about it but each time it ended in an argument- screaming.  He has broken doors, walls, put his hands on me.  I finally left him to find out that he wasn't going to school, wasn't working, was addicted to porn per the many magazines in a box in our garage I found after I seperated from him.  I'm so happy I divorced him, I don't have any of his children, I moved on, got a master degree in administration educartional leadership and have moved on with my life and career.   My life  is so much more productive and positive than when I had him in my life.  I dont think I would have gone this far if I would have stayed with my ex.  I learned from my experience, I do what I love, enjoy time with friends, go to church and worship, spend time with my kids (dogs), read, write, go shopping, I enjoy going to the beach and on vacation with friends but I   keep an eye on my checkbook and balance it MYSESLF every month which I never did when I was married. I still haven't met mr. right but that is okay.  I am happy and doing what I want to do with my life right now.

I'm sorry for what you've gone through, but if you find yourself dating the same type of woman (liar) again and again, theres something in yourself that you need to work on. Dont scrap the female race just yet, find out why you keep attracting these women.

What money were they surviving on? Was he committing fraud as well? how she could not know is beyond me, Phil you're a legend but I dont understand why you didn't ask how they were surviving or what happened at tax time.
She needs to get rid of him, he's a terminal liar, he wont change.

You may watch it every day, but every day someone new is tuning in, he's talking to them, not you, get off the mans back and be glad we have someone like him in the world!

We're seeing re-runs now.  What have been the results of this and other shows?  Is there a tab on the website I'm missing?  Would be nice to find out what happens to all the people we 'become involved with'.  Good suggestion, right?  Let's get to work on that tab then.  Thanks!
