  • Summary

  • How Not to F*ck Up Your Marriage Too Bad is the frank, intimate and provocative follow-up to the 2018 Audible Original How Not to F*ck Up Your Kids Too Bad, exploring the equally thorny and confusing world of marriage.

    In each episode author and columnist Stephen Marche goes on a journey to answer a question that everyone in a marriage or long term relationship faces at some point. They're the very real problems he faces himself.

    Should we schedule sex? How do we stop fighting? How do we live together? Can marriage survive death?

    From infidelity to divorce, modern marriages are messy and there aren't always simple or happy answers. This series makes sense of the messiness.

Marriage hopeful single

This series is so powerful... Having gone through a long term relationship but not quite making it the whole way and blaming most of the strife on my Ex this series opened me up to a lot of realities I had been thinking about but not really sat to disect and digest. Loved it so much I wish there were more topics of life like adultung, parenting, financial futures, friendships mental health, all the good stuff done in the most beautiful way

Biggest take away

“You only really need a wedding if you shouldn’t have one and you only need to get married if you don’t need to”. This really hit home because for the longest time i thought i never wanted to get married, when in fact i just don’t want to get married just to prove something.

Beware listening to episode 10 while in public

Because it had me crying like a little baby. What a thought provoking, eye opening, entertaining, and ultimately beautiful series about love.

Interesting Views on Marriage

This was a series about marriage and various stages including: the wedding, living together, sex, money, divorce and even death. It left out one major option, the decision to have kids. This just assumed like most that everyone wants kids and the option not to would never come up. I consider that a major issue since the presenter claimed he was presenting varied viewpoints. It included comments from real couples and experts on relationships.

great podcast for everyone

The topics were great. I appreciated hearing so many different sides of each story. I would love to hear more about issues with raising kids.
