Hubbard gives the basic procedure for Scientology marriage counseling.
The auditor takes both husband and wife "by the scruff of the neck," establishing control over them both while getting each partner participating in the interrogation of the other.
So if a PC comes to you - he's having trouble with the marriage, the best thing that you can possibly do is say, "Well, are you both willing to settle up this marriage before we go any further?"
"Settle up the marriage, yes, but my wife wouldn't have anything to do with Scientology."
"Oh, is that so? Well, better bring her over. I want to show her how an E-Meter works!"
Set them both down in the session with the meter between them and let them go at it back and forth. And they'll be in session!
But you shouldn't really take one marital partner at a time and pluck them off someplace into an auditing room and do it all very super-secret and all that sort of thing. You ought to get them both by the scruff of the neck and sit them down across from each other with an E-Meter between them, and if they don't know how to do it and so forth, you sit there and hold the meter, you know, and audit them. Any auditing you're doing, though, have one of the partners back of you. Works.
