(Please listen to the podcast episode or read  the transcript  to hear explanations, stories and examples.) 

In this episode, Rabbi Manis Friedman and Dr. Jessica Higgins discuss: 

  • Functional marriages versus intimate marriages. 
  • Love doesn’t bond you, it separates you, because love is a personal experience. 
  • The difference between sex and intimacy. 
  • The harm of pornography and its pervasiveness in society. 
  • The essence of marriage is giving and receiving. 
  • Addressing tension points to build intimacy and trust. 
  • Only getting married if you believe in marriage and are in it forever. 
  • What home should feel like, regardless of moods.

“The thing that is ruining marriages today is love – love has become toxic, and love cannot hold a relationship together, it wasn’t meant to. Being in love does not mean you’re in a good relationship, it means you found some pleasure in your life.” —  Rabbi Manis Friedman
