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.

In this episode of The Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD, is joined by Vince and Krystina Shirey to discuss the many blended family issues they faced when they got married and combined their families. They also talk about how they learned to let go of expectations in order to have a happier marriage.

A pervasive challenge faced by couples when blending a family concerns the delicate balance between prioritizing the children’s needs and wellbeing versus prioritizing one another in the marriage. Unfortunately, societal norms and unconscious biases are unhelpful when navigating all the important considerations. The truth is, in a successful marriage with children, it’s not either-or and it’s key to aim for a harmonious balance. It is crucial to prioritize the marriage while also maintaining a strong bond with the children, which is an inherently lifelong commitment. 

Whether you’re in a blended family or not, how do you and your partner prioritize your marriage while also maintaining a strong bond with your children? 

Also in this episode: 

  • The challenges of blended families and being a blended family
  • The importance of non-negotiable dates
  • Why you need to start letting go of expectations
  • How to deal with the pressure of your marriage
  • Why sexuality is incompatible with pressure from your spouse
