The Intimate Marriage Podcast with Alexandra Stockwell, MD

Do you want to deepen your understanding of your relationship? Access new heights of emotional, sensual, and erotic intimacy?
Is your marriage really great, and you’re wondering what more is possible for you? Are you feeling stuck in a rut and can’t seem to find your way back to one another? If you want your relationship to feel truly amazing, join Alexandra Stockwell, MD, physician, and Intimate Marriage Expert every week, as she shares the secrets to creating and sustaining a deep, meaningful, and passionate marriage.

Alexandra Stockwell, MD, is joined by her husband Dr. Rodd Stockwell, to unpack the art of how to problem solve in your marriage. 

They stress the importance of clearly identifying the type of conversation you’re having, whether it’s venting, seeking emotional support, problem-solving, or something else. You need to know which kind of communication you need, and which kind of communication your spouse needs.

When there’s a problem, before diving into practical solutions, it’s essential to address any emotional baggage first. Visualize yourselves sitting side by side, collaborating on the problem at hand, without disrespect or opposition. When the emotional air is cleared, real solutions arise so don’t hesitate to take detours when unexpected emotional issues present. 

Also in this episode: 

  • Communication Types: Understand that there are different types of communication, such as venting, making requests, problem-solving, vulnerable communication, and more.
  • Setting the Stage: Before diving into problem-solving, ensure that both partners are on the same page about the type of conversation they are having.
  • Emotional Alignment: Make sure both partners feel heard, seen, and emotionally aligned on the issue before moving on to practical problem-solving.
  • Teamwork: Approach problem-solving as a team, sitting on the same side of the table, so to speak. Avoid making it about one person being right or wrong. 
  • Efficient Problem Solving: If emotions or conflicts arise during the process, address them first, and then return to the problem-solving discussion.
  • Building Connection: Successful problem-solving enhances connection and intimacy in the relationship, leading to more efficient and harmonious interactions in daily life.
