Rori Raye and Jeffrey Levine Talk Candidly About Their Relationship

Men and women often talk past each other. Sometimes they give up, feeling frustrated and disappointed – like they have to hide a part of themselves.

Which is why I recently launched my podcast called “How To Talk To A Man.”

Then I had this idea: for my wife (Rori Raye) and I to have honest and open conversations about our  decades-long marriage – what’s worked and what hasn’t worked – as we navigate the inevitable challenges that couples face.

We call it “In The Raw.”

It was something totally new for both of us – where we set up the mic and start recording – with no planning.

We’ve both spent years coaching others, so how do those tools and techniques play out in our own home? That’s what we want to explore.

This particular episode I found very interesting when I listened to it back.

We talked about an argument we had the previous evening. And after listening to us talk about it, I was struck with this reaction:

“WTF were we arguing about?” It all seemed so trivial the next day.

And it occurred to me, that’s what most couples deal with.

Often, that point that you argued seemed so important in the moment, and then so unimportant the next day.

And I was struck by how even though we disagreed on some of the details of what actually happened, we were able to let that go, and instead focus on what needs were coming up – and the choices we made in the moment.
