Episode #1 – “I Would Rather Be Divorced”
Melanie and Seth take us back in time to investigate their nearly failed marriage and begin the process of uncovering why marriages really succeed and fail. They talk with author, speaker, and Licensed Clinical Social Worker Leslie Vernick, as well as a mother of 6 who is going through a divorce, and older children of a divorced family.
It’s Finally Here!!!
Hello everyone, this is Melanie and Seth Studley and we are excited to finally be able to share the Stronger Marriages Podcast with you, a project that we have been working on with strongermarriages.com for an entire year!!!
This show walks through our nearly failed marriage as we explore and discuss what went wrong, why it went wrong, and how we could have done things differently. We interview couples who are going through their own struggles, dissect real life arguments and get advice from professionals in the fields of marriage, communication, sex and more.
In Episode #1 titled, I Would Rather be Divorced, we go back in time to begin our investigation, we explore the reason why Seth , a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist said “I would rather be divorced.” We interview kids whose parents have just completed the divorce process, we talk to a mother of six who is just beginning that journey in her own marriage and we talk with Leslie Vernick about destructive relationships.
The Stronger Marriages Podcast has been an amazing project so far and we feel beyond blessed to be on the journey. And while it is fun and exciting, it is also hard, scary and uncomfortable at times but we have grown SO MUCH in the process of creating this podcast and we hope that you will enjoy listening to it as much as we have enjoyed creating it!
