How Do You Go From “I Do” to “I Don’t”?

Wedding vows usually say, “Until death do up part”.  Two people who claim they want to spend the rest of their lives together make those vows.  Yet, a significant number of those couples turn to divorce court to settle irreconcilable differences.  What happens?

If you speak to the ex-husband, he will say it was his ex-wife’s fault.  And the wife will have her story.  Are people simply making poor choices in a spouse?  Or do people lack the skills to have a relationship? 

Join us today for another thought provoking discussion.  We are going to talk about the good the bad and the ugly.  We are going to understand how people destroy great relationships and what you can do to avoid those deadly mistakes. 

Tonight, February 17, from 7:00pm-8:30pm (EST) at Straight Talk with Ted Santos and Blair Nash.

Call to comment or ask questions live at: (323) 642-1387.

The Path From “Happily Ever After” To “Irreconcilable Differences”

We’ve all seen the images:  a happy Couple, trapped in a euphoria of bliss. Excited for the future. Making plans of multiple children, exotic trips, building a home from the ground up….

Creating a LEGACY.

Why Men Don’t Trust

Has humanity lost sight of the fact men are human beings first?  Are we raising boys to be part of humanity?  Are we giving them the tools to be leaders in their communities or businesses? 

To answer these questions and many more, we will have a very special guest.  Lori Miller is a practicing psychologist who works with men.  For 30 years, she has worked in

Have Men Lost Trust in Society?

Has society abandoned men?  Has the term toxic masculinity become toxic for men?  In the US, there are more homeless men than women.  Significantly more men give their lives in the military – over the last 20 years over 6,800 men died and 46 women from enemy fire.  Furthermore, men commit 77% of suicides.  And society does not blink when men die.  What’s just as troubling and has been ignored is that the US is the first

Here’s Why You Should Have Sex on the First Date

This past Sunday on Straight Talk, with Ted Santos and Blair Nash, we once again took on a topic that most people avoid.  We talked about sex.  From the responses on social media, it didn’t appear people were happy with me.  As you can imagine, the topic of sex on the first date did not go over well with everyone.  At the same time, people

What’s Wrong with Sex on the First Date?

For some reason, sex on the first date is taboo, even if both want it.  At the same time, a man is praised when he is able to persuade a woman to lay down with him on the first date.  The woman, on the other hand, may be condemned.  In some cases, the man

Here’s Why You Should Have Sex on the First Date

There are so many books that provide relationship advice.  Some of those books provide explicit instructions on the appropriate time to have sex with a new love interest.  Some books say 30 days, while others say 90.  Then there are books that are ambiguous.  With so much different advice, it’s

Should Men Pay for Dates?

For centuries, men have been hunters.  They went on the hunt and brought home the game.  In modern society, they present game, go to work and bring home the bacon.  With this expectation, the workforce has traditionally consisted of mostly men.  In 2019, the workforce consists of

Here’s Why Dating Is Failing

Couples around the world go on dates.  However, a date is not a date.  Even in the US, a great date is not the same for each person.  Nevertheless, regardless of country in which the date occurs, it is the man who

Should Men Pay for Dates?

In the age of equal pay, many women brag about earning equal or more than men.  With that level of pay, should there be equal responsibility in dating?  Unfortunately, many women believe paying for a date is a man’s job.  Those women claim to be old fashion when it comes to spending their money.  However, in other aspects of the relationship, she wants

Is It True That Men Don’t Like Listening to Women?

This had to be the liveliest show we have done so far.  And it was amazing to hear the variety of thoughts from men and women.  It seemed this show struck a nerve for everyone.  Before we hit the airwaves, the controversy started on Facebook where the topic for the show was first announced.  Once on the air, some callers were happy to engage in the topic, while others almost turned it into

Do Men Avoid Listening to Women?

Most people claim that communication is important in love relationships. In fact, people often state it is common sense to know great communication is imperative.  Yet, the divorce courts are filled with couples who have poor communication.  How is

Is It True That Men Don’t Like Listening to Women?

There are women who complain that men don’t listen.  Is it true that men don’t listen?  Do men check out when a woman is speaking with him?  If so, why would this happen?

According to some men, they believe women become emotional about many topics.  Men say women’s expressions are not usually logical or fact based.  Or women depend mostly on their personal experience to make their point.  And if she becomes upset or passionate about the subject, the man may feel as though he will not be able to speak.  As a result, he remains silent.  Hence, the reputation men have earned; men do not like to express themselves. 

What if men have created a false presupposition about the way women think and speak?  What if the value of the woman’s message is lost to those presuppositions, even though she is being emotional? 

On this show, Ted and Blair are going to facilitate a conversation that may be highly charged.  However, this is the opportunity to get to the bottom of it.  We invite you to help us explore this topic in search of the facts, even if it does get a little emotional.

Are There Benefits to Dating Career Women?

For decades, women have fought for equality in the workplace.  However, do they fight for social equality?  Social equality would require women to take on the same level of responsibility as men while dating or married.  Are most women mentally prepared for that?  Or do they want

What Are the Pros and Cons of Dating Career Women?

Now that there are more women in the workforce than men, the odds are higher for a man to date a woman with a thriving career.  Since there are a finite amount of jobs, that means more men are displaced from the workforce than ever.  What will society do with an enormous amount of displaced men?  Will the rules of

What’s the Best Advice You Have Ever Been Given?

In the face of gender wars, many men feel cornered.  They have heard the cries of women and most men believe they have been responsive.  Yet, with the advent of the “Me Too” movement, masses of men are lost for words.  Women have pointed the finger at all men with terms like “toxic masculinity”.  This has resulted in

Has the “Me Too” Movement Gone Too Far?

Whether it’s an animal, insect or atom, males and females compliment one another.  In fact, their survival is predicated on them working together.  Even the black widow spider needs a male to perpetuate the species.

Is “Me Too” Taboo for Men to Discuss?

For decades, the feminist movement has demonized men.  However, over the last decade, the feminist movement has become less popular amongst women in the US.  Is the “Me Too” movement a desperate attempt to bring life back to feminism?  Or are men the beastly animals that feminism has depicted?

When we explore human behavior, we find there are certain behaviors that are apparent anywhere in the world.  One of the behaviors is the result of

That’s right.  We talked about S-E-X.  This past Sunday on Straight Talk, with Ted Santos and Blair Nash, we got down and dirty with everyone’s favorite subject.  We wanted to know: Why Does Sex Conjure up So Much Controversy?  It was interesting to hear people openly discuss their thoughts about sex, sexual conversations and what happens when it’s not available.
