Jordan Peterson Dishes Out Marriage Advice

Jordan Peterson Dishes Out Marriage Advice

you be sabotaging your relationship and
not know it
renowned psychologist dr. Jordan
Peterson is here with a new type of
relationship intervention that everyone
has to see he’s one of the most
influential thinkers out there and while
Dean controversial by some dr.
Peterson’s work has resonated with
millions of couples all around the world
selling out books and lectures
tens of millions today he’s breaking
down his biggest rules for living happy
and healthy relationships that might
just surprise you thank you where’s the
baby so he says one of the biggest
focuses is that you have to actually
maintain the sanctity of marriage and he
once said if you’re not all-in you’re
not married you’re pretty provocative
statements why do people find this
controversial well I think people are
afraid of confronting the real problems
and conflicts in their life and no
wonder and they want an out they want an
option and you can understand that but
the thing about marriage is that unless
you’re in it for the long run it’s very
difficult to be desperate enough to
solve the problems properly otherwise if
you always think you can escape if
that’s always in the back of your mind
then you’re going to be able to avoid
engaging in that difficult
problem-solving process I think the
reason that some people get
uncomfortable with your advice is it’s
brutally honest hmm and when you you
know talk about these issues that are
usually black and white like living
together before you get married which
has become so common you take a firm
statement saying well that just means
you’re just what I’m gonna be able to
compare what you got now for what else
else out there that’s painful for people
to hear you know what I respect the fact
you’re telling me the truth as you see
it and I want folks to hear this wisdom
from you and then you guys decide how to
use it in your lives
the biggest mistake couples are making
today in America again this is a major
focus of your work what is it oh I think
they underestimate the degree to which
marriage is also an economic and
practical relationship it’s going to be
how the household duties are distributed
it’s going to be discussion about career
it’s going to be discussion about
finances it’s going to be discussion
about how you raise and discipline your
children and your priorities and that’s
work like like running a businesses work
you have to
you have to think strategically and you
have to learn to negotiate it’s very
hard for people to negotiate and that’s
an undervalued skill we heard from our
next guess
I knew they were need of an intervention
Stacy and Tracy have been married for
seven years but the chaos in everyday
life is threatening to tear them apart
take a look Stacy and I met actually
back in high school we were highschool
best friends pretty much unseparable
after school we kind of went our own
separate ways did our own thing and then
of course through the magical power of
Facebook we found each other again and
then I told her I said let’s just go to
dinner went to dinner and been together
since my marriage was awesome when we
first got married but it’s just slipped
into like we’re roommates the
communication is gone the affections
gone she’s my best friend we did
everything together we would go camping
motorcycle rides we used to go on love
dates and now it’s like we don’t do
anything together on a daily basis we
kind of get in little arguments or
Tiff’s we have different expectations of
what we want from each other and not
even on the same page or even in the
same book sometimes so to speak
sometimes I beat him down so it’s like
he doesn’t want to try
I do feel underappreciated I feel like
she’s given up either we got to fix this
or go things have got to change oh it
makes me sad sorry I have the divorce
papers printed out already and he knows
it as well and it’s not that we don’t
want to fix it we do we just don’t know
how I want it but how do I save it
they see and Tracy
join us now Tracy what’s the like to
hear what Stacey was saying it’s real
but hurts it hurts Stacey it’s
disappointing to me
because I don’t want to be the stigma of
going through divorce we’re still quite
young I know there’s better out there I
just miss my best friend in Tracy why’d
you want to be here I saw how emotional
it was free to watch your wife speaking
about the marriage it’s just the
speaking the pictures of what we had
miss it just like myself just want my
best friend back you want some help yes

the intervention that every marriage
