About Modern Marriage
We believe the issues most couples face is because our culture and expectations around marriage are outdated.
In our work and in our lives, we frequently meet couples that are made of two smart, successful, progressive people, but their marriage is like a time warp to the 1950’s – inequitable, passionless, toxic, and full of mistreatment.
Because of outdated roles, lack of communication, disorganization, low standards, and literally zero education on how to make marriage awesome, most people are driven to either living in a passionless, friction-filled, inequitable marriage…
Or they leave and get into another passionless, friction-filled, inequitable marriage.

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 started her coaching practice. We were independent, traveled all the time, 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, Sarah’s company started to grow. We barely saw each other, but we were happy.
When we had kids, all of 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.
