The View: Wendy Walsh
Do you have a bad track record in terms of dating? Dr Wendy Walsh said you may be buying into dating myths you don’t have to follow anymore. That’s why she wrote The 30-Day Love Detox, a book to help guide women through the dating field.
The View: Independent Women & Marriage
Walsh said in the book that when women are in power positions, men are less likely to jump at marriage. “When women are disadvantaged, marriage rates go up,” she said.
But men are less likely to commit when women are independent. Walsh’s advice was to practice slow love “and build some intimacy before they start knocking boots.”
The View: Hooking Up Vs Commitment
Dr Wendy Walsh said she was shocked at research that found women believed hookups could lead to meaningful relationships.
“I promise you, no man thinks that,” she said, noting that women and men have different thoughts and responses to being intimate.
The View: Unmarried Couples Living Together?
Why does Dr Walsh think living together before getting married is a big mistake? She cited a statistic that couples who live together are less likely to get married, and they are most likely to end up divorced.
What if you just live together forever and never get married? Walsh said that commitment is the key to making a relationship work.
Whoopi Goldberg and Elisabeth Hasselbeck questioned this pop psychology by wondering why this advice is targeted at women and doesn’t seem to address men’s roles in the relationship at all. It was a great question, but Walsh’s answer was that she does not know how to control men.
