Are you questioning what you want out of your relationship? Society often hides the challenges of marriage, and many relationships don’t work out. But, how do you know which path forward is the right one for you?
According to Dr. Marie Murphy, many people enter into a marriage with little to no idea of what marriage means to them. They may believe it is the only legitimate form of partnership — without knowing what they want out of that partnership. And, when a marriage doesn’t work out, many people see divorce as their only option for happiness. However, it’s essential to determine what you want from your situation and get clear on your why. While you may experience a range of emotions no matter what path you take, Dr. Murphy suggests that you invest in the choices that are best for you.
In this episode of Your Secret is Safe With Me, Dr. Marie Murphy discusses the complicated relationship between divorce and marriage. Dr. Murphy examines the common mythologies and expectations surrounding marriage, why it’s essential to create a clear vision about what you want, and how to invest in the right choice for you.
