Relationship Expert - Show #42

Show highlights:

1:12 This show will be a special edition for Valentine’s Day. We will be talking about important questions like, “Is there such a thing as a soulmate?” And: the definition of love, how to know your partner really loves you, and more.

3:50 What is the “History of Love & Marriage”? How has this changed over the years?

4:46 Dr. Marty gets into our first question for the special edition: What’s your definition of love? What are our expectations about love? Is love really about meeting our expectations? We cover a range of “expert” ideas about love.

8:37 Can you love somebody and let them go? When does the negative outweigh the positive in a relationship?

9:04 “Love has no room for jealousy.” Is this true?

9:48 “Love is the absence of fear.” How does this really work out? Is it natural to never be afraid in a love relationship?

10:20 “Love is an action, not just a feeling.” What does this mean in practice?

10:50 “Love is unconditional.” Really? No matter what? We talk about giving someone another chance, and setting boundaries.

11:51 “Love means putting other people’s needs before your own.” Whose needs really do come first? Which needs *have* to come first?

12:43 “Love is the highest vibration emotion.” What are the differences between love vibrations and fear-based vibes? Is there such a difference? What is “love” versus “excitement”?

17:22 Dr. Marty talks about how love requires attention, and how it needs to be cared for over time and all the stages of a relationship.

18:35 “Love understands and accepts the fact that we are different.” How has love evolved to today, and where is it going now?

20:08 How has “You need to find yourself” become the modern idea that “We are not made for just one partner for our entire lives”? Is the idea of a monogamous lifetime relationship now becoming a thing of the past?

21:36 “Love makes you feel good, it doesn’t make you feel bad.” Is it really the absence of love that makes us feel bad?

23:03 Dr. Marty talks about the question, “Is there such a thing as a soulmate?”
