I first interviewed Adam B. Coleman, founder of Wrong Speak Publishing, on Episode 92 of The Suzanne Venker Show about our culture of victimhood. Adam is back with me today to discuss his astute article, “Why the Modern Woman Is an Unhappy Woman.”
IN THIS EPISODE:
2:50 Are women happy?

18:00 Most women would rather stay home and take care of their kids than work full time

36:10 How can women change their trajectory when it comes to love and relationships?
39:00 Parents have to take charge of teaching their kids what they need to know about relationships
40:00 Treat your relationships as seriously as you would the pursuit of a college degree, and don’t stay in a relationship for a long time if it is going nowhere
