Jenny Mollen is someone who was never supposed to be good at commitment. Being the child of multiple divorces, an actress, and a Gemini, she had everything working against her. She once had a two year relationship with the foreign exchange student from her high school only after he left her high school and was back living in another country.

When Jenny met her husband Jason, neither was looking for a relationship.They were young, naive, and had a lot more mistakes to make. It was most definitely NOT the time to commit themselves to a marriage that would go on to span the next fourteen years But, with a little luck and a whole lot of therapy, that is exactly what happened. Jenny still can’t believe she's found herself in a healthy functioning union. In fact, she’s still trying to piece together how it happened.

Third Wheel with Jenny Mollen will explore this topic and more as Jenny pries into the private lives of her friends and other notable couples each week to get a sense of how and why their relationships work. We are talking about power dynamics, triggers, issues and more. This isn’t a “how did you keep the spark alive?” kind of interview – this is a deep dive into the real life-struggles and triumphs that make couples tick.

Stop with the yes, right, of course

I love you Jenny but you do not have to respond to every single sentence they say. During one sentence you say “yes, right, uh huh, amazing, I love that”. Just let people talk. You do not have to have a response to every single sentence.
