Who doesn’t love a Jesus cheater love story.
If you’ll recall, last February I snarked about “sex addiction” therapist Doug Weiss’s divorce announcement. Shockingly, the unicorn could not heal his marriage. Yet, he’s got lots of blameshifting advice for chumps (excuse me, Intimacy Anorexics). Find your husband with prostitutes? Up your sex game, little lady.
Anyway, I wasn’t going to devote any more blog bandwidth to Douglas Weiss. Because, eww. Brain bleach. But then I got this nice comment from Al recently.
Obviously Chump Lady has not listened to Doug Weiss’s material. He completely blames the guy (or woman) who cheats. He constantly teaches compassion and understanding toward the wounded spouse. Sadly, his marriage was lost. We don’t know the facts but right or wrong it impacts his credibility. Chump Lady with your skewed analysis seems you have some hurts. Sorry. Try a relationship with Jesus.
Sadly, his marriage was lost. Did it fall out of his pocket? Has a golden retriever puppy run off with it and chewed it to bits? Did Doug forget his marriage password? OMG WHAT HAPPENED AL?
We don’t know the facts but right or wrong it impacts his credibility.
I was, in fact, snarking about the facts — he announced his divorce, and there are troubling reviews of Doug Weiss’s services. Also, hello… his godawful videos. But I’m curious why you think divorce impacts his credibility. If this was any other kind of counseling, a therapist’s divorce would be irrelevant. But if you shame people into thinking divorce is failure and if they’d only been sexier this wouldn’t have happened — why yes, it may have the stench of hypocrisy.
Chump Lady with your skewed analysis seems you have some hurts.
Nothing some sex tips from Doug Weiss couldn’t fix.
Sorry. Try a relationship with Jesus.
Oh Al. You had to bring Jesus into it.
Now, I’m a very lapsed Methodist preacher’s kid, but I seem to recall Old Testament God wasn’t keen on adultery. Now, I’m not saying Doug Weiss is a cheater, but getting engaged as the ink dries on your divorce is a classic cheater move.
Engaged? Say it isn’t so, Tracy! How can this hunky man of God with his Christian sex tips be off the market!
Sorry ladies. Christian broadcaster Joni Lamb got there first.
Joni is the cofounder of Daystar religious broadcasting. If you want to read about the long list of prosperity gospel controversies, check out the Wikipedia page. Joni’s husband Marcus died of COVID in 2021. He was also a cheater and settled some sexual harassment lawsuits. So, perhaps she and Doug were drawn together by the intimacy anorexia that must’ve caused Marcus’s wandering dick. I don’t know.
And we know he’s godly because polygraphs for porn!
Funny how, the month before, Dr. Doug suddenly lets people know he’s divorced. Which is kind of weird when you run a marriage counseling practice, to keep that under your hat just in time to go public with your twu wuv.
Huh. If you’ve been divorced for months and dating a recent widow with a larger social media following than yours, why not mention it? Poor Lisa Weiss. I guess your platform wasn’t sexy enough to keep your husband.
