Frequently Asked Questions

Does Untangle The Knot encourage divorce?

Absolutely not! We provide information and resources for people with marriage troubles with the hope that they can improve their relationship. However, we recognize that all marriages are not in a position to be saved and sometimes divorce is the best option. For those cases, we want to provide an easier path for a difficult journey.

I’m concerned about my privacy but want to use Untangle The Knot. What can I do?
