Sara Schwarzbaum on WGN Radio, Chicago

Listen to Couples Counseling Associates founder, Sara Schwarzbaum, discuss what couples can do to prepare for their first year of marriage or leading up to their wedding. This interview aired on WGN Chicago with Bill Moller on January 22, 2011.

In this audio clip, Sara describes why it is important for couples to discuss their differences and what to do about them, in addition to planning for their wedding day.

The differences that arise in a relationship when people start living under the same roof can be destabilizing to a relationship. Couples can learn the skills they need to meet each other’s needs. In this clip Sara also argues that “love is a decision” and that couples must learn the art of “real giving.”
