Marriage Trouble? Listen In ...

... to this podcast on momenough.com (one of my favorite Minnesota-based resources with a national reach, developed by two really amazing women) featuring Dr. Bill Doherty (one of my favorite colleagues/researchers/therapists/all-around-awesome human beings, also here in Minnesota). You probably know Dr. Doherty's name if you read at all about healthy marriage and family; he's the author of many books which tell us exactly what to do if we want to keep things working well in our most important relationships. In fact, Doherty's research has inspired much of my own. Infinite thanks as always, Bill.

On this podcast, he tells us about what to do if your marriage is in trouble. Fascinating stuff here (e.g., he shares his research on the "divorce super highway" and "couples on the brink!"). No matter your status, you'll be glad you listened in:


As always, great job Bill and co-host/mother-daughter team Erin and Marti! Minnesota HEARTs your efforts and, as always, your approach.

Save My Marriage said...

Well, I’m certainly glad you made sure recommend this podcast. Since I heard it I’ve taken it upon myself to research and listen to a lot more of the podcasts. There is a lot of great advice I’ve been able to glean from and apply into my own marriage. I completely agree with the message being presented. Marriage does take a lot of work—and until couples realize that it takes time and effort, they’re not going to be able to survive many of the occasional road bumps along the way. I think the major key is communication… but certainly people have to be willing to put in the work required to keep a happy marriage. I’ve often likened it to a sort of marathon. Where it takes patience, determination, and both mental and physical toughness. I hope more and more people read this blog and are able to find aspects that they can apply to their own marriages.
