I was curious how the woman who Oprah describes her work as revolutionary and groundbreaking would explore her experience of divorce. I was thrilled to interview Dr. Shefali. The institution of marriage is pretty strange when you think about it. We’re encouraged at a young age to commit to another person through a government issued contract for the rest of our lives, and if we decide we change our minds it's difficult and taboo to leave. There doesn’t seem to be any other lifetime commitment with similar “rules,” so why is it this way with a marriage?
Life is all about changes. There are seasons with small, subtle changes that feel fairly easy to navigate, and there are seasons with so many changes that life feels dizzy. The beauty in the latter, however, is how much we can learn about ourselves and develop into even greater people along the way.
Dr. Cohen talks to Judy Gold about her divorce, laughing their way through the topic. They shared the hurts, the pain, the struggle. They also discuss how she became an even better person and what she learned about herself along the way.
Dr. Cohen talks to Candace Bushnell about her insights on the contract of marriage. We discuss the necessity of thinking long and hard before putting so much of your energy into a man, dealing with your spouse's emotional immaturity, and how you can take your divorce as an opportunity to find your voice.
It's finally here! Join host Dr. Elizabeth Cohen as she talks with experts in the area of relationships, divorce, and marriage, and all the complicated beauty that comes along with it.
