Millennials are opting for prenups in record numbers compared to previous generations. They are also more likely to simultaneously plan for divorce while preparing for their wedding, essentially assuming that it won’t last. This isn’t surprising when almost half of all marriages in America end in divorce. But what if you could take preemptive action to have one of the marriages that last?

Most people are aware of the financial investment involved in marriage, which is why many people try to protect themselves with a prenuptial agreement. However, the often-unnoticed emotional investment is the key to a successful marriage! An emotional prenup can help engaged couples navigate difficult topics before marriage and offer a blueprint to avoid conflict and divorce.

Today's special guest, Frieda Birnbaum, PhD, is a research psychologist and psychoanalytic therapist in Saddle River, New Jersey and the award-winning author of Life Begins at 60: A New View of Motherhood, Marriage, and Reinventing Ourselves and What Price Power: An In-Depth Study of the Professional Woman in a Relationship.

An expert on topics such as family dynamics, parenthood, relationships, addiction, anxiety and depression, Dr. Frieda is a seasoned media personality and commentator who is adept at discerning the psychological underpinnings of current issues and parsing the psychological profiles of various newsmakers- politicians, celebrities, criminals, etc.

Notably, Dr Frieda is the oldest woman in America to give birth to twins. The mother of five, her youngest sons were born when she was 60, lending her a unique perspective on issues related to parenting and the empowerment of women at any age.
