On Monday, September 26, 2011, the third episode of Shrink4Men Radio will air at 9pm EST.
The topic will be What Every Man Should Know Before Getting Married or, conversely, What Do You Wish You Had Known Before You Got Married?
Marriage can be an extremely beautiful and fulfilling enterprise. However, if you marry an abusive, high-conflict person, it can become a living nightmare. High-conflict divorce is a needlessly excruciating process that leaves many men and women swearing, “Never again.”
Marriage as an institution isn’t necessarily bad. However, dissolving a marriage is a rigged game in which many men are forced to accept highly inequitable and unjust losses. In other words, is marriage the problem or is it the divorce racket?
If you’re not married, what questions do you have about marriage? What are your concerns? What are your fears?
If you’re already married and/or divorced, what do you wish someone would have told you before you said, “I do?”
Did you have doubts before you married? Did you know you were making a mistake? Why did you go through with it?
For those of you who have married and divorced and remarried, what lessons did you learn from your first marriage? Did you use these lessons to make a better choice the second (or third) time around? What advice would you offer men and women who are struggling to end an abusive marriage with a high-conflict spouse?
During the show, I’ll touch upon warning signs of potentially bad mates and give a general overview of the Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW) movement.
The telephone lines will be open 310 388 9709, so please call in with your comments, questions and stories.
Meanwhile, if you’d like to share your advice, stories or questions here in the comments section, I’ll do my best to incorporate them into the program.
Hope you can make it!
