Episode 004: Losing My Religion (and getting a divorce) with special guest Derick Whaley Are we ever prepared to find out someone cheated on us? We explore this and much more with Comedian Derrick Whaley, who shares his thoughts on religion and its impact on his relationships. What do you do when someone cheats on you? I always think, “oh I’d do this” or “I’d do that.” But when it comes down to it, I don’t do any this or that. I just move on. The Boyfriend admits to burning letters that his ex sent him. He hasn’t burned items that didn’t belong to him. As I think back, I have shredded pictures and even burned a few. We both agree that it’s more of a cleansing action, and not so much about getting back at the other person. However, I’ve thought about getting back at someone. I’ve even researched the effects of itching powder on Amazon. I’ll even admit that I did use an ex-boyfriends shirt to clean my toilet before giving it back to him. However, I’ve never acted out and did really mean things, and I’m glad to hear that The Boyfriend hasn’t either. We both usually just want to get away and

By lifelafterdivorce|February 14, 2017|Uncategorized|0 comments

Episode 002: Little Things (in marriage & divorce) with special guest Jay Jacobs We learn about the importance of doing the little things to keep the spark going and a more in-depth definition of cheating. Jay Jacobs, a married podcast host who’s horrible at relationships, shares his marital challenges. Two quick notes from Leanne: Wow. I want to point out that I talked way too much in this episode. Mental note to self “Shut up Leanne.” Please excuse the hot mic and poor audio in this episode. I’m having a bit of a challenge with my mic. Contrary to what many of us may believe, the little things tend to keep the spark going more so than a long deep conversation. At the same time, some of the little actions we are taking can put out the flame. While a monogamous relationship can provide comfort, new relationships provide the thrill of the chase. Leanne and The Boyfriend explore the idea that everyone’s wants and needs are different. So how do we find balance? How do we grow our long-term relationships and keep them exciting? We determined that if we want spontaneity and excitement, we have to put in the effort. We have to make a

Episode 001: Communication Breakdown (and divorce) with special guest Jim Barnes Jim Barnes, stand up comedian, host of Jim Barnes and Friends and The Sunday Night Mic at Flappers Comedy Club in Claremont, CA joins us to share his relationship experiences. Our first episode and we’re going to talk about…communication. We communicate every day to our friends, family, co-workers, strangers, everyone. It’s how we navigate our way in this crazy world. So why is it so difficult when we’re in a relationship? The Boyfriend and Leanne agree that direct communication is crucial for any relationship to survive. Hoping someone reads your mind or picks up your subtle cues just doesn’t work no matter how many times we try. Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don’t say it mean. It seems easy enough, but it’s amazing how many times we don’t do it. What’s holding us back from being open and honest with the one we care about most? Maybe it’s fear. Maybe it’s just not knowing any better. Either way, like any good habit, it takes practice. Then there is the other side of it. Listening, and really hearing someone -not just what we want to hear. What is the tone? What is

I want to make this into the best thing that ever happened.” And so she did. Leanne began saying yes to new opportunities every chance she could. A co-worker suggested she take an improv class and she did. That was it for her. Leanne was hooked. Improv gave her a healthy outlet and, as a result, taught her how to improve her communications skills, gave her a new perspective,
