Get Gold in Grand Theft Auto 5’s Marriage Counseling Mission

In this Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5) mission walkthrough, we’ll be showing you how to get gold in the game’s seventh mission, Marriage Counseling. You’ll learn how to take out Madrazo’s thugs and get the truck back without a scratch, all within our time limit.

GTA 5 is a huge game, and with the constant updates from Rockstar for GTA Online, there’s no shortage of new content and interesting things to do. Join us as we continue our series of getting gold in every darn mission in GTA 5.

Approach the Mission as Franklin

To get gold in Marriage Counseling, we’ll need to complete the mission in less than 5 minutes and 30 seconds, take out three of Madrazo’s thugs, and avoid damaging the truck. To achieve this, we’ll approach the mission as Franklin.

As soon as we jump into the truck, we take off and head up Picture Perfect Drive, where we encounter a few scripted obstacles. We keep going at full speed until we see a dirt road on the right, which we take down. After a cutscene, we quickly return to the truck and start driving fast again.

Avoid Damage and Eliminate Thugs

As we head down the road, we get a phone call from the coach, but we skip it to save time. We turn right and follow the GPS back to Michael’s house. We encounter some of Madrazo’s thugs on the way, where we’ll need to swap to Michael and take them out.

The trick to getting gold is to shoot the passengers first so we don’t lose the car. Once we’ve eliminated three thugs, we can swap back to Michael and head back to his house.

Interestingly, damage done to the truck during the chase does not count, so it’s okay if the tailgate is all messed up as long as we don’t hit anything else.

Bonus Tips to Improve Your Score

If you want to improve your score even further, try mashing the skip button as soon as any cutscene starts, and run everywhere you can. Finally, be sure to shoot the passengers first when taking out Madrazo’s thugs so you don’t lose the car.

And that’s it! With these tips, you should be able to get gold in the Marriage Counseling mission in GTA 5.

getting gold in this one’s a little tricky we’ll need to
rail through the mission in less than five minutes and 30 seconds
and three of madrazo’s thugs and avoid damaging the truck
for something a little different we’ll approach this as franklin
as you can see we can just catch the coach at the tail end of his encounter
with michael ouch
and into the cutscene as we’re on a timeline we’re going to
skip the cutscenes but at some point i’d encourage you to go through and watch
the whole thing from michael’s perspective
so we jump in the truck and take off now remember the gate so don’t
um don’t kill yourself trying to catch the coach here because
it is scripted
as you head up picture perfect drive there’s a few scripted obstacles
watch out for that wall in the suv
these clowns
and this drone go
alright so there’s a few on-screen prompts to point you in the right
direction then the gps will pop up so we just follow that up go absolutely
flat out until you see the dirt road there on the right and we
want to head down there just go flat out don’t worry about slowing down
the scripted event that’s coming up deals with that for you there we go so
we’ll scroll past okay so you’ll pull up it’ll be the start of a cut scene we
just want to skip that
as soon as you can start running back to the truck and jump in
plant the foot
and away we go now i like to give the truck a waggle here i have no idea if it
actually makes any difference but it kind of feels like it
does so yeah we’ll leave it in it doesn’t hurt that’s for sure
okay skip the next cut scene again and then head off
as we head down the road we’ll get a phone call from the coach we just want
to skip that and that will make sure that we are good
to go by the time the thugs are ready to come around so hang it right there
and then follow the gps back to michael’s place so after the left
we’ll get that sweeping left and then hang a right
and then at the end of this road we’ll start to see
some of the madrazo’s thugs rolling up behind us
we’ll be prompted to swap to michael uh too
sorry we’ll be prompted to swap to franklin so swap over as soon as you can
and start shooting now we want to get the passengers before we get the drivers
otherwise we’ll lose the car so passenger first then a driver and with
any luck michael will stop light them up make sure that they’re as
many as you can are dead or if they pile out of the car just hit
anyone you can
alright once you’ve got three that’s gold set so we can swap back to michael
now interestingly enough damage done to the truck during the trace
doesn’t count so even though the the tailgate’s all messed up it doesn’t
matter at all you can just head straight back to
michael’s and it will still count as long as you don’t hit anything
including that gate as no damage we’ll skip the final cut
scene and job is done
