Sarah Jenks + Jonathan Brajtbord
FIRST, THE CREDS…
Sarah Jenks has mentored and coached thousands of women over the past 12 years in cultivating a purpose, an identity, and a sacred life. Her work has been featured in Forbes, Parents, Health and Success to name a few. Sarah is the founder of Whole Woman, an international community and program 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 and 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 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, and 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. Sarah became the primary parent and primary bread-winner 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, making 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.
But we caught ourselves before it was too late, and 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 us 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 your home in just 6 weeks.
