Diamonds Are a Marriage Counselor’s Best Friend
Season 5, Episode 4
In part one (“Diamonds Are a Marriage Counselor’s Best Friend“), we meet a young Michigan couple who win a diamond at a charity event and then can’t decide what to do with it. Sell? Set it in a ring? Or stash it in the laundry room and just keep fighting about it?
Then, in part two (“Why Marry, Part 2“), we learn why so many fewer people are getting married. The University of Michigan economist Justin Wolfers discusses his marriage research; we also learn, from Howard University psychologist Ivory Toldson, that eligible black men aren’t as scarce as we’ve been told. And Democratic pollster Celinda Lake talks about the politics of the changing marriage landscape.
