    The Courage to be Disappointed: Giving Up Covert Control for Marital Growth || Room for Two Teaser!

    The Courage to be Disappointed: Giving Up Covert Control for Marital Growth || Room for Two Teaser!

    Rick and Sarah are really good at hiding.



    Rick hides behind his nice guy persona—he has learned through experience that if he keeps Sarah comfortable enough, he will maximize the chances of getting sex. So, he skirts around the truth and keeps his honest thoughts to himself in an attempt to keep the boat from rocking. Sarah has fully bought into this dynamic and pushes for Rick’s accommodation. She knows the part to play, plays it well, and takes refuge in fading into the background and letting Rick take care of her. While this one-up/one-down dynamic has created an amicable enough marriage, it hasn’t created much passion or intimacy.



    In this episode of Room for Two, Dr. Finlayson-Fife meets again with Rick and Sarah to discuss how they can create a more equal and strong partnership by both bringing more courage and honesty to their relationship.

Life changing insights and advice

I’ve listened to every episode, some multiple times. JFFs work is a MUST for anyone from a conservative Christian religion, married or not. Her relationship and sex advice have literally changed my life for the better.

LOVE Dr. Finlayson-Fife! ,

A life-changing podcast!

Dr. Finlayson-Fife is an absolute gem! I would have never guessed that a sex therapist could have such a profound impact on my life in so many ways, but she has! When I stumbled on her podcast, I was looking for help to increase my sexual desire but what I got was so much more than that. These episodes have helped me work through my relationship with my spouse, they’ve helped me think through how I parent, they have helped me as I have made major life transitions, they’ve just been so impactful in my life in every aspect.

If I could recommend one podcast for people to listen to, it would be this one!
