Eric and his Wife have personally practiced using the system and process for the last 11 years and has experienced amazing results. 


He developed the marriage system and process for himself because he was tired of having a bad marriage. Even though his marriage ended in divorce he took with him the lifestyle he created for himself using the Smiling Marriage system and has been happily married ever since.

After listening to Eric's audio series we gained great insight on the effects of divorce and the realization that we always take ourselves with us no matter where we go. That is something I had personally never considered. This is definitely and eye opening series that can benefit healthy or unhealthy marriages.


PS. We are still married and we think Eric's Great!!! Terry and Karen
