"Michael's marriage is on the rocks."

Marriage Counseling is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V, given by protagonist Michael De Santa to himself.


Michael comes home, calling for his wife Amanda. He steps out of the house and notices two tennis rackets, causing him to act suspiciously. He confronts Amanda when he walks to his room and he finds that she is cheating on him with her tennis coach, Kyle Chavis. Chavis attempts to reason with Michael, but he is too furious, so the coach jumps out of the window. Soon, Franklin arrives and helps Michael track down the tennis coach.

The two leave in a "borrowed" construction truck and chase Chavis on the road until he immediately hides out at a mansion. Michael threatens the tennis coach as he is hiding on the deck. Franklin then ties the trucks' cable wire winch onto the deck's support beams. Michael and Franklin get inside the truck and Michael accelerates, causing the support beam to buckle and the entire house to collapse and slide down the cliff. 

As they drive away, Chavis calls Michael on his cellphone and warns him that the mansion they destroyed wasn't his, it was the home of a big time gangster's mistress, and tells Michael that he will send goons to kill them.


Martin beating Michael with Baseball Bat

They manage to hold them off and make it back to Michael's mansion, but are cornered by Martin Madrazo and his goons. Madrazo's goons beat Michael with a baseball bat and demand that he should pay for the damages he has caused. With no choice, Michael proclaims his return to the life of crime.

Mission objectives

  • Get in the truck
  • Follow the tennis coach.
  • Drive to the canyon.

  • Time - Complete within 05:30.

  • If the player starts the mission as Franklin (by going to Michael's house as him), the mission will start straight from the point where Kyle jumps off the balcony.
  • Michael pulling down the house in this mission is a reference to a similar scene in the movie Lethal Weapon 2.[1]
  • If Michael calls Amanda sometime after this mission, it's revealed that Kyle fled Los Santos to get away from Michael.
