Hi! I'm Stephen, founder of Husband Help Haven. I used to believe that marriage was like the lottery - you either got lucky and won a happy, life-long relationship, or you "lost" and got stuck with divorce.

As I began falling in love with my wife, I realized that "luck" wasn't good enough. I committed to becoming the man she'd stay in love with forever.

My mission on this website is to help you become the best husband, father and leader that you can be, no matter where your marriage is at right now.

Whether you're facing divorce or happily married, you'll learn how to make the most of your circumstances and become the man you know you were meant to be.
