In this episode of The Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD discusses the lies that we often believe about our relationships. The first lie is that we have married the wrong person when we face difficulties or a lack of sexual chemistry. The second lie is treating our relationships as transactions and expecting something in return for what we give our partners.
