Cheers Sexy People!
I am thrilled to announce our latest podcast interview! This interview with an excellent and seasoned relationship coach Deborah Roth came about thanks to an introduction from one of our frequent commenters here, “ClaraTheGreat”. What an awesome community we have here! Connecting great humans that may be able to create magic together is a beautiful gift. I’m excited that Deborah and I were able to create this awesome podcast show together. We tackle subjects such as the differences in coaching monogamous versus non-monogamous folk, the importance of boundaries in multiple relationships, and how to handle tough emotions that come up in our relationships as we all strive for love, understanding and acceptance. Just wow! I hope to have her back on the show!
To learn more, here is information from Deborah’s Relationship Coaching page of her website:
Consider, for a moment, some recent, sobering facts about marriage and divorce:
- The marriage rate is decreasing, and is at its lowest in 30 years.
- While the exact divorce rate is a matter of debate, experts agree that somewhere between40 and 60% of all marriages will end in divorce, and that for every marriage there is about one divorce.
- The percentage of young adults who say that having a good marriage is extremely important to them is increasing (94% in one study).
- 43% of first marriages end within 15 years.
- 39% of remarriages end within 10 years.
- More than 85% of all adults marry at least once.
I’d say the verdict is in: it’s time to do a serious re-assessment of the way we approach relationships and marriage in this day and age. I don’t believe there is such a thing as a “perfect marriage”, yet it seems that we all continue to strive to first meet the “perfect” partner, then count on them to make us complete throughout our shared lifetimes. .
I can tell you from direct experience – 30+ years in a dynamic, constantly growth-producing marriage – that there are no simple formulas or easy tricks. But I do know as I look around that there is so much more we could be doing to pro-actively prepre ourselves for the most enlightened, successful relationships possible, and once in them, to continually deepen and expand ourselves, our partners, and that mysterious third entity, the partnership itself.
Now that is some serious awesome right there!
