Strange Bedfellows: Romantic Love and Anger
In this show, psychologist and couples’ expert, Dr. Max Belkin illuminates an important aspect of marriage that often goes unmentioned but is crucial to the success of any relationship—balance.  Drawing on examples and responding to cases proposed by host, Dr. Suzanne Phillips, he describes how couples need to balance connection and autonomy, passion and friendship, love and anger and more.

Dr. Belkin suggests that often when couples are struggling in their marriage, they are stuck in mutual blame rather then identifying what each really needs and how they are unwittingly preventing those needs from being met.  He underscores the myth of expecting one’s spouse to be “everything” and the importance of outside world involvement to enrich a marriage. With stories and metaphor Dr. Belkin considers what re-ignites passion in a waning marriage and what may really be hidden by expressions of anger. To the very end of this show, listeners gain the benefit of learning how to keep the balance and maintain the best of their bond.
