A New Partnership Model with Nate and Kaley Klemp

“That conversation led us to the idea of: what’s a different way to do marriage? Especially against this backdrop of "we want to be equals, we want to be teammates, we want to be partners"—but also, we want to be in love.” - Kaley KlempKaley Klemp, an executive coach and expert in small-group dynamics and leadership development, and Nate Klemp, a prolific writer on the “inner technologies of the mind,” knew that traditional marriage models weren’t going to fit their busy modern lives. They struggled to divide work evenly, until they realized the stumbling block that trips up so many marriages: they were never going to feel like everything was equal. Instead, they discovered the power of radical generosity and shared success. Now they’re sharing their transformative ideas in the new book The 80/80 Marriage.Whether you’re in a decades-long marriage or happily single, everyone can benefit from hearing the Klemp’s remarkable new approach to relationships. Leaving behind unrealistic expectations and devoting ourselves wholeheartedly will help our relationships thrive and grow like never before.(2:58) - Tackling marriage(14:18) - Attempting 50/50(22:59) - Creating structure(30:42) - The under-contributor(34:21) - Redefining commitmentsNate Klemp is a writer, philosopher, and entrepreneur.
