Episode 9 | Let’s Talk About Sex with Melissa Pennica
For as long as we can remember talking openly about sex has seemed like the least sexy thing you could do.

Episode 8 | All About That Prenup
With thousands of prenuptial agreements being negotiated everyday you would imagine that there would be less of a stigma for modern day couples when discussing whether or not to have one.

Episode 5 | Before You Say I Do - Part 1
No matter what stage of life you are in, or phase of relationship you find yourself, at one point or another, you consider making a more serious and formal commitment. In this two-part episode titled “Before You Say I Do,” we grapple with some of the more nuanced conversations you might want to have with your potential partner.
Episode 4 | Communication - Part 2
If you asked what the key to a good relationship was, most people would say communication. If prompted further, most would tell you that they are good or effective communicators, but is that true? In this two-part episode on communication our thoughts deviate a bit. In Part 1, Isaiah, being a marital attorney, illustrated how you can make a divorce less painful when communication is beyond repair. In Part 2, Meredith, being a licensed psychotherapist, will explore the alternative of not leaving the relationship, but instead finding new ways to connect with your partner, improve communication, and manage conflict.
