Updated: Nov 16, 2022

Your Secret Is Safe With Me with Dr. Marie Murphy | Is Monogamy (Un)Natural?

There are a lot of messages about marriage and divorce floating around out there in the cultural fog that surrounds us. People take for granted ideas like, if they get divorced, that means they’ve failed, they won’t be happier, and they’ll ruin the lives of everyone around them, so they just have to stick it out. Sound familiar?

What you believe truly does matter. Your beliefs determine how you will behave. Dr. Marie Murphy’s clients have invariably encountered beliefs much like these, and believe them to be truth. So, today, we’re talking about common beliefs people hold around marriage, and why it’s so important for us to examine and question these beliefs, and decide if we actually want to believe them.

Tune in this week to start questioning the common beliefs about marriage that make so many infidelity situations so much more difficult to deal with. You’ll learn how unexamined beliefs keep you stuck in situations you don’t love, while being conscious of how your thoughts and beliefs influence your behavior will bring you the freedom and power to make the choice you really want to make.
