Ep 11: Real Marriage Talk with the Slatkins by Rabbi Jacob Rupp published on 2017-08-29T09:01:02Z Shlomo and Rivka Slatkin are marriage counselors who have worked with thousands of couples to restore their marriages. The old saying, “it takes one to know one,” is particularly relevant for this couple, who found themselves on the brink of destruction early on in their marriage and sought help to turn things around. Today, Shlomo Slatkin is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and expert in Imago Relationship therapy, and together with his wife, they help couples transform their relationships with themselves, their spouses, and their children. In this week’s episode, the couple speaks about the three steps of every worked-on marriage, the purpose of marriage, and how to deal with the hardest parts of marriage. In this episode, you’ll learn: The power struggle is real in every marriage, and it’s the most important part. How we unconsciously choose a spouse based on our opposing needs. What the highest form of a relationship looks like in real life. Why we get married in the first place, and what we are meant to learn from marriage.
