Key ingredients to a lasting, loving and successful marriage..
Why have it good when you can have it great? There are many factors that can make or break a marriage and many aspects of marriage that are overlooked for status quo. A healthy mindset and framework can make all the difference to lift up both healthy or even challenging relationships to new heights of synergy, respect and love.
Mrs. Chana Levitan is an author, speaker and marriage therapist with decades of experience and research as to what are the key ingredients to lift up marriages from the status quo. In this episode we take a closer look at some of the tools and inner workings of relationships and how they can become springboards for more successful and lasting marriages.
“Change in marriage happens unilaterally when one person says, 'Hey, you know what, I've gotta work on this. Yes, my spouse is acting like an idiot right now but...so am I. I need to work on my part in this relationship.' If someone is in an abusive relationship then 'The Power of One' is very limited. But in a regular situation if we are all perfectly imperfect then ['The Power of One'] is so amazing.”
Chana Levitan, MSc, is an educator, speaker, marriage therapist and author with over twenty-five years of teaching and counseling experience. Her best-selling book I Only Want to Get Married Once is a clear and practical guide to choosing the right marriage partner. Translated into Chinese and Romanian, this book is making a huge, positive impact in this world.
Chana has lectured extensively across the globe on five different continents and has counseled thousands of men and women on dating and marriage.
She is a frequent guest on television and radio talk shows, including WCBS 880 and WLS 890. Chana has recently launched her second book, “That’s Why I Married You”—a practical guide for couples to not only learn to live with their personality differences but to actually love with their differences.
Chana is a certified Imago Relationship Therapist with a Master’s Degree in clinical sociology and family counseling, with an emphasis on Family Systems Theory. She believes that a good marriage has many lives; it really is a dynamic, evolving process. This is wonderful truth that couples with ‘staying power’ reveal to themselves and to others; a truth that (sadly) many people might never know and Chana is dedicated to getting this message across to as many people as possible. Chana’s goal is to teach people to choose the right partner before (sealing the deal), and then ‘be’ the right partner (after the deal is sealed).
Chana loves people, music and nature; she and her husband grab every opportunity to hike and camp. Chana’s greatest passion is to give people the tools they need to trust themselves and their abilities to create their successful marriages.
