    Ep 33: The Parent Trap

    Ep 33: The Parent Trap

    Ep 33: The Parent Trap
    • Using a parent as your shadchan

    • A mother knows best– how much should I trust my parent’s experience/advice?

    • My agent will handle this– How involved should my parents be in “handling” my shidduchim? Do I have a responsibility to take part in the process?

    • Parental consent– what if my parents nix a good idea for reasons that don’t actually matter to me?

    • The Parent Trap– my parents are very controlling and won’t let me make my own dating decisions. How do I break free?

    • One man’s treasure... My parents just don’t get me and are trying to match me with the wrong type. What should I do?

    • I heard concerning things about his/her parents. Should I end it?

    • Pair-rents– do both sets of parents have to be a good shidduch too?

    • Mommas boy– I really like the person I’m dating, but he/she has an unhealthily close relationship with his/her parents. Is this a concern?

    Ep 31: The Compatibility Check

    Ep 31: The Compatibility Check

    Our guest hosts, Chani and Yonah, and their featured guests discuss:

    1. The great compromise - How rigid should your lifestyle expectations be? Reconciling differences in areas such as upbringing, child-rearing, food preference and money-spending.

    2. Deciding you’re not compatible
    • Are you being too picky?
    • How to point out concerning behaviors to the shadchan

    3. Personality tests/horoscopes- are they a good barometer?

    4. Friends/Family
    • What do you do when your family/their family expresses clear distaste for the shidduch? (Elope? Break it off? Work it out?)
    • What if you like them, but can’t stand their friends/family?
    • What do you if a friend intervenes and says they think it’s a bad shidduch?

    5. Comfort with expressing disagreement- becoming comfortable telling your date that you disagree, and being told that they disagree with you

    Ep 30: Money Talks

    Ep 30: Money Talks

    It’s a conversation to have, money talks in Shidduchim. Spending money on dates, paying shadchanim and of course family financial means.
    1) Would you date someone who’s poor? Would you date someone who’s rich? Why?
    2) When you find the one, what’s the expectation in terms of engagement/wedding gift? Do you/your family intend to stick to the “rules” of who pays for what at the wedding?
    3) What kind of lifestyle do you need in a spouse? Frugality vs lavishness.
    4) It’s a dog eat dog world: shadchanim who are in it for the money. Do they exist? Have you experienced them?
    5) At what point do you feel comfortable spending a lot of money on a date?
    6) Getting married when one or both are in school
    6) Is there anything wrong with filtering for a rich spouse?
    7) Are shadchanim catering to the rich?
    8) Do you want to spend big on dates?
    9) How to tell they are financially stable/saavy?
    10) Are shadchanim catering to the rich?

Great stuff!

I think you guys are fantastic. As someone with kids in Shidduchim I find this so informative. Good information with some humor added in. Keep it up.

Offensive under the guise of being helpful

So offensive! I just listened to two episodes and was nauseous. In one episode they bashed a girl for being a macaron maker and called it “weird”. Honestly, I don’t know anyone who is a macaron maker and I myself am a lawyer, but what if one of you listeners was a macaron maker? You guys have no tact!

HILARIOUS 🤣

Just discovered you guys like a week ago.
You guys are hilarious, I can’t stop laughing!! As a girl it’s so nice to hear it from a guys perspective!!
