Inside the Lesson

In this episode, Laura Doyle—founder of Laura Doyle Connect, a coaching company that has helped over 150,000 women, and author of First, Kill All the Marriage Counselors: Modern-Day Secrets to Being Desired, Cherished, and Adored for Life—discusses the secret to having a passionate, peaceful marriage. She teaches wives how to express their desires in a way that inspires their husbands to act on them. She also outlines how to have gratitude in the midst of a struggling marriage and to avoid what she calls “negative spouse-fulfilling prophecy.”

Laura Doyle encourages wives to relinquish control over their husbands’ lives by focusing instead on their own lives and their own happiness by committing to doing three things every day for themselves, such as coffee with a girlfriend, a hot bubble bath, or a nice walk. Intimacy and fear, she says, are direct opposites; one is light and one is dark. They cannot coexist. If a wife wants to be in control, she must give up intimacy; but if she wants intimacy, she has to give up control. In fact, you cannot have a happy relationship without first making yourself happy.
