3 Reasons You Can't Get and Keep a Man | ep #62
Breakups suck. They're hard and they hurt. It's just part of life - relationships don't always work out. Maybe you're just not compatible or you mutually decide to call it quits. But, there comes a point where you not being able to "keep a man" might be more about YOU and you're own unresolved issues. It's a tough pill to swallow and even harder to admit that maybe, just maybe, you are not "perfect" and that you have faults as well. A strong, lasting, healthy relationship is made up of two whole individuals who are ready for a long-term commitment. Sometimes, before you are able to reach that level of commitment you need to do some self-care and get work on yourself. It's not always easy, but it's worth it in the long run. In this episode, the Trufants get real about the 3 main reasons why some women can't keep a man and the steps they can take to make sure they find "Mr. Right"...instead of "Mr. Right Now" or "Mr. WRONG"

Your Boyfriend is NOT Your Husband | ep. #61
Do you do everything for your boyfriend that you think a wife does? Sex, cook, clean, grocery shop, laundry...blah, blah, blah? Basically, giving him all the privileges of being a husband without the commitment? Then you wonder why he hasn't married you yet after all this time. Now, if you're in a relationship where you have both decided that marriage is not your thing, this episode is probably NOT for you. For everyone else - your boyfriend is NOT your husband and it's time to stop treating him as such, especially if you want to get married and he doesn't. Period. And all those things you "think" you're doing for him that a wife should do - any woman could do that. Maybe he's stringing you along. Maybe he doesn't want to "fix something that's not broken"... Whatever the case may be, in this episode the Trufants get real about relationships where the couple is not married, but (usually) the woman goes above and beyond to act like a wife in an attempt to possibly prove herself as worthy wife. Listen up, this one is going to ruffle a few feathers.

This is Why Men Benefit MORE From Marriage Than Women Do | ep. #60
Nearly 70% of divorces in the US are initiated by women. So, why do more women than men call it quits on marriage? Maybe, just maybe, it's because they do not benefit from marriage in the same way that men do. Gender roles traditionally teach women to prepare to be a "good wife" their entire lives whereas men are taught to build careers. Ultimately, as times have changed, married women might get fed up with this narrative and decide that marriage cannot benefit them in the way they need. In this episode, the Trufants discuss who usually benefits more from marriage - men or women? And, what can be done to make it feel more equal on both sides to have a lasting marriage.
