Sarah Jenks + Jonathan Brajtbord
FIRST, THE CREDS…
Sarah Jenks has mentored and coached thousands of women over the past 15 years in cultivating a purpose, an identity, and a sacred life. Her work has been featured in Forbes, Parents, and Health and Success to name a few. Sarah is the founder of Holy Woman, an international community dedicated to healing patriarchal brainwashing and helping women be their true, fully expressed selves in the world.
Dr. Jonathan Brajtbord is a widely published, board-certified Urologist and Integrative Medicine Practitioner. He is the founder of Men’s Work, an online program dedicated to men’s physical, emotional, and relational health.
Now, our (short-ish) story: We met at Williams College when we were 21. Sarah was a pearl-wearing, collar-popping, party planner and Jonathan was the starting fullback on the football team. We spent our early twenties in New York City. Jonathan went to medical school while Sarah worked a brief stint in marketing, and then began her coaching practice. We were independent, constantly traveled, went out with our friends four nights a week, and had sex in public bathrooms. Our love was easy … and hot.
We got married and moved to San Francisco. Jonathan started residency, and Sarah’s company began to grow. We barely saw each other, but we were happy.
When we had kids, all the passion and love drained out of our marriage. We became the couple who fought in fancy restaurants, forcing Sarah to leave and cry in the bathroom. Sarah became the primary parent and primary breadwinner, which created overwhelming resentment. Jonathan worked 90 hours a week during his surgical residency and felt disconnected from the family, deeply unappreciated, and very distant from Sarah.
During this time, Sarah was also on a spiritual journey, which Jonathan refused to join. This made us feel like we didn’t understand each other anymore or have a common dream for the life we were supposed to be creating together.
Fortunately, we caught ourselves before it was too late. We devoted a lot of time and money to healing our marriage. The journey to creating a Modern Marriage based on sharing responsibilities, incredible romance, and each having a strong purpose and self-care was long and expensive. So … we created a condensed, affordable marriage course that you can do from the comfort of your home in just 4 weeks.
