Marriage is hard, and divorce is even more so. If that’s the case, what are the do’s and don’t’s in a marriage? In this episode, Certified Divorce Specialist (CDS)™ Jennifer Hurvitz brings in her boyfriend, Jim Healey. Jim talks about what he would have, could have, and should have done differently in his first marriage. He and Jennifer talk about why nagging is an issue that all couples need to be aware of. They also discuss other mundane things that have the potential of ruining a marriage, like putting away (or not putting away) laundry, video games, home improvements, social media, etc. All of this and more are in Jennifer’s book Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda: A Divorce Coach’s Guide to Staying Married.

What He Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda Done In His Marriage With Jim Healey
You’ll never believe what we’re doing. I’m speaking, talking and recording at the same time. It’s funny, Jim Healey is in the house so this is exciting for me. Welcome, Jim. I thought we would go along with my book as our topic.
Do you have a book?
I have a book Woulda. Coulda. Shoulda. I have two books, but the one book that I want to talk about is the white one with black writing. Woulda. Coulda. Shoulda.: A Divorce Coach’s Guide to Staying Married is exciting for me because it was chosen by OprahMag.com. It’s the number five best marriage book to read with your partner.
On a weekday.
Whilst in bed, for a healthy relationship.
We’re going to talk about what you woulda, coulda and shoulda done differently in your marriage.
I’m perfect. I would’ve done nothing differently. Everyone must bend the knee to me. You know how incredibly perfect I am. It didn’t fail because of me. It wasn’t my fault.
The first step is admitting.
I would have done things differently. We all would have.
Everybody needs to understand this. First of all, divorce is not easy. Divorce is hard and difficult. If you’ve chosen it, if you haven’t chosen it or whatever happens, it’s not easy. Looking back, I wrote this book Woulda. Coulda. Shoulda. and I came to terms with the fact that I maybe did have a part in this divorce. You didn’t have any part in your divorce at all?
