Couples Therapist Reviews Romantic Comedies

J clap again no hi i’m saba rooney Lurie I’m a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a board-certified art therapist I’m the owner and founder of take root therapy a group psychotherapy practice in Los Angeles California today I’m going to be reviewing some couples and romantic comedies no don’t pull that with me don’t even try it this is not how you treat your friend what I saw in that segment was how difficult it can be gonna be in a relationship with someone when you’re starting off oftentimes our attachment stuff will come up so we may think we really want a relationship and when it shows up it can be really overwhelming I like you Tom I just don’t want to what you’re not the only one who gets a say in this and often times to we are really clear about what we don’t want and yet we might engage in behaviors or in a relationship that is outside of that realm so I imagine most of us can really connect with that feeling of but you’re showing me something different it was confusing to me to hear her say I don’t want a relationship and then have her show up at this guy’s door so if I had to guess at this relationship within the last I would suspect that it’s not just because it seems like they’re both on different pages at the go but if one person is saying I don’t want a relationship and one person is saying but we’re in one it can be really difficult to move forward from that I’m sorry imagine your husband bought a gold necklace and come Christmas gave it some day we all want to think that when we’re in a relationship that if we agree to be in a monogamous exclusive relationship that’s why it’s going to be and we know from experience from knowing friends and family that a lot of impede led does exist in relationships would you stay knowing life would always be a little bit worse would you cut and run when one has been married for a long time I don’t think that that’s necessarily an easy answer nor is it always the ideal or appropriate answer so you can see this woman really struggling with what do I do now and she’s confronting him with that I’m sure classic yes be father made a fool out of me we’ve made that life I leave foolish do I think there’s a chance for them I think that she was really candid and really vulnerable and instead of defending himself instead of writing her off or pretending that she’s wrong he looks like he’s also acknowledging the pain that she’s feeling and that he’s put her in this situation so I think that if they’re willing to work through this they can make you see yangshin you there is the push how co-op went on you quit know what the sooner come what this yeah Emma I remember seeing this movie and having a really strong emotional reaction during the scene and I can feel it now this frustration this anger with Nick’s family and their expectations of him and their attempts to really derail his relationship I hired a private investigator mom she look into her past do you have any idea the scandal this would have cost for Rachel to hide something like this as someone hits a first-generation American there’s a lot of impact of having a family from a different culture and what they want for you and what they expect and what you may want for yourself but that’s not an easy choice to make and I think here you can see that he’s actually leaving his family like he physically has to to run from them and chase the woman that he’s in love with in terms of prognosis for their relationship he he seemed to choose her and in any relationship that would need to come first seriously who are these women okay um know how we have arranged marriage in my culture is it those women these are women in Pakistan who want to marry you they’re not in Pakistan so I think this one’s interesting right after crazy rotations because in both there’s this cultural component there’s a cultural expectation and it’s being confronted by this relationship that doesn’t follow standard rules there’s such a liar is there someone that you’re not lying to you I’d love to meet them because then I could tell them are you supposed to be good at having shoes as a therapist do I really appreciate the part about like oh yeah we don’t have our together and we’re not always good to be calm cool and collected and that doesn’t make this any less effective as therapists so I like that piece too you know what we call arranged marriage in Pakistan Emily marriage my cousin Rehan made an Irishwoman and he was kicked out of the family nobody is allowed to talk to him having a family that you really care about and you don’t want to disappoint and and knowing that you might by making your own choices is a hard one God was my friend prognosis ooh medium as a man sir I think that they would need to work through a lot and to be asked to sacrifice your family in the name of love is not an easy choice to make maybe one is happy but the other isn’t or vice versa just so you know nothing happened between me and Jen last night I’m tired of being second best or fake best I don’t know how often we really experience these things where we have an agreement we pretend to something you know then we fall in love like this is one of those times when I think Holly wouldn’t maybe misses the mark a little bit about reality but the idea that we have a hard time trusting our partners a imagine is pretty common okay look I leave we just go inside and talk about this yes you leave buddy wait this isn’t about Jenna and me at all no this is about you and Josh you’re still in love with this Barney there wanna be here in left Josh Morgan no what a tangled web sometimes in a relationship when we get started we’re not always being a hundred percent honest and then that might come back to haunt us later on Peter go home yeah you were never second best I think what most of us all of us want in a relationship is to feel really secure and connected and like we can trust a partner prognosis I think poor and it might be hard to recover and be really authentic really honest connected in a relationship yes I’ll order a pizza I’m sorry Harry I know it’s new usually I know you’re feeling lonely but you just can’t show up here tell me you love me and expect that to make everything all right how about this way I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees oh I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich I love to get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts I love that after I spend the day with you I can still smell your perfume on my clothes and I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night and it’s not because I’m lonely and it’s not big or just New Year’s Eve I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible I think what we can take what we can hope for is that in relationships when we have friendship that that’s really going to help us be connected I’m like I was saying earlier to feel like we can trust that we’re secure that somebody gets us how important is it to feel like somebody understands you and to have a relationship that lasts feeling understood is so important I really hate you and also that they can fight and they can recover we’re going to have conflict with partners it’s just a matter of life but if we can find a way to come back recover and laugh and kiss yeah that would be nice prognosis I want to say you know strong they have a good strong relationship ahead of them that’s what I think anyway it’s about old friends [Music]

    Rin R September 8, 2019

    Ok.. but how can you judge a whole relationship by only seeing a few moments of it. People can work through stuff. Or what may seem happy for a few moments may not end up lasting. 🤔

    Please have her review the Fifty Shades of Grey series, personally I think they paint a controlling relationship as loving and beautiful, which is 100% unrealistic and dangerous for women to look up to. It’s only “sexy” and “acceptable” because he’s handsome and rich.

  56. ArtichokeHunter
    ArtichokeHunter September 10, 2019

    She doesn't think if you pretend to be with someone long enough and go through enough together that it would be normal to develop feelings? Strong disagree, I think unless you're an actor it's hard to act like something is true for a long time without the lines blurring and starting to wonder if it's true.

  72. Andrea Miller
    Andrea Miller September 11, 2019

    I hate most romance films because the people are usually unlikable or do the stupidest, most unrealistic things. However, despite the zany,unrealistic set-up, I absolutely love While You Were Sleeping. The cast is so dang likeable, the leads have great chemistry and are basically really nice people and you just k ow they're going to make it. It also works as a warm and fuzzy Christmas film.

  73. Linden Peters
    Linden Peters September 11, 2019

    Great video, so interesting! But I would bet to differ on the "iconic" description. The only iconic couple in this was When Harry Met Sally, and mayyybe Love Actually and 500 Days of Summer. Movie suggestions that are truly iconic (not all are comedies):
    Gone With The Wind
    Adam's Rib
    His Girl Friday
    The Quiet Man
    As Good As It Gets
    The Princess Bride
    The Notebook
    Fifty Shades of Grey
    Sleepless in Seattle
    Pride and Prejudice (the A&E miniseries)
    Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
    Cold Mountain
    Philadelphia Story
    Breakfast at Tiffany's
    Any of these would make for a fascinating video!

  74. Gladys
    Gladys September 11, 2019

    I like when she said for the Big Sick ‘medium’
    Obviously she hasn’t seen the movie or heard of it, since they are married in real life.
