Ep. 44: Erik Newton - Risk and Resilience in Love and Relationships
2 days ago
This week, we discuss risk in love and relationships. I must admit, it isn’t the type of topic that I feel comfortable discussing and if you were to ask me two years ago what the chances of me hosting a podcast episode on this, I’d tell you the chances would be infinitesimally small. And yet, this being a podcast on risk, here we are. My guest this week is Erik Newton. Erik is a former family law attorney (i.e. divorce lawyer) who describes himself as “someone who has been through a thousand divorces and still believes in love.” He has a unique and real-world understanding of what makes some marriages thrive and others fall apart. He now works with couples to build healthy relationships. He is the co-founder of Together, a site and podcast that provides people with tools for success in relationships. Erik is also a marriage commissioner and has married over 180 couples. We had an awesome, insightful and incredibly fun conversation that covered: Erik’s background – and how he got into practising divorce law in the first place (he doesn’t strike one as the lawyer type!); What he learned about relationships as a divorce lawyer; Common causes of divorce; Conflict in relationships; Being present in relationships; Monogamy and open relationships; Online dating And so much more!

Well worth a listen!
Ben always offers interesting guests and a fresh perspective on cutting issues of the day. His 'no holds barred' approach ensures that a given topic will be thoroughly scrubbed. I've listened to a variety of his podcasts and have always found them entertaining and informative. I highly recommend them!
