Newsweek’s Kim Kardashians and Emily Schwan are the authors of the book “How to Marry Your Best Friend.”
They are married in their own home.
Their marriage has been going on for two years.
They spoke to Newsweek about their experiences with marriage therapists, what they have learned, and what you should know about them.
Newsweek: Hi Kim, how are you doing?
Kardasian: We’re doing great.
The book has been amazing.
It has changed the way I approach marriage.
People want to talk about it and share it.
People ask me if it was difficult for me to get married and, like, “What are you talking about?”
I think it was pretty challenging.
But the biggest change was that we realized that there are some people who are really great at understanding how to manage relationships and how to be effective at doing that.
We have seen how these people can actually be really, really helpful and really powerful, and really help their partners understand how they’re feeling, how they can move forward, and how they could really, truly get married.
We also started noticing that we were seeing more of those same types of relationships in our own lives.
They are really strong.
It’s like a puzzle to me.
I can’t imagine what it’s like for a partner of mine who is like, I’m tired of this.
They’re like, Oh, it’s fine.
I’m ready to move on.
It takes a lot of courage for someone like me to actually, honestly, accept that it’s not going to be easy.
Schwan: We have a very close relationship.
When we were younger, we were all so close, and now we’re not.
We both have very different interests.
I think I do better with my husband because I have a stronger relationship with him.
I don’t think he does better.
And I think we’re both doing better.
Karda: We did the whole thing with a really open heart.
And it was hard, because it was like, You’re supposed to be so confident and so strong, and then it turns out you can’t handle this stuff.
And then the first time we had a disagreement, it was really hard.
You’re like the only person on earth that could do that.
Schw: I was the one that felt like, Why is this going on?
Why is it taking this long?
I mean, this is my husband.
We’ve been married for almost nine years.
I feel like I’m supposed to have this kind of strength.
We’re supposed, and I’m still not.
I am so happy I’m not the only one.
We did it because we were able to.
I mean that was kind of our choice.
It was a really good, really tough decision, to be honest with you.
And also, we’re all kind of very, very similar in a lot the ways that we are.
I had a lot more confidence in my own mind than I did with my partner.
And now I know that I am stronger.
Schwa: We both started out in different fields, in different things.
I was in marketing and social media, and he was in accounting.
I’ve always been a perfectionist, but I think that has changed a lot.
I love doing both, but now I’m much more confident in myself.
I just feel that I’m doing everything right, and that it doesn’t take too long to realize what’s going on.
But when I was younger, I was always very nervous about being the first one out of the door.
I thought, Why am I the first?
I think now, I can feel that this is a good place to start, because this is the place where we can get to know each other.
It is a safe place to have a good, healthy relationship.
Kardson: I feel more confident than ever, because I feel my own energy is flowing.
It seems like it’s just a matter of time.
Schwal: When I first started my marriage, I thought it was a good idea to just keep it small.
I knew it was not going be easy, but at the same time, I knew that I had to give it my all.
And the way to do that is by giving myself the time and the space.
That was my biggest fear: I knew I was not ready for this.
I did not know how to do it.
I still don’t.
Schwer: I would say, You have to give yourself permission to be the person you want to be.
You have got to get the confidence, and the self-confidence, and all the other stuff.
You’ve got to feel comfortable with yourself, and you’ve got a lot to learn.
But I think once you’ve done that, you will be able to feel like you are doing the right things, and it will be like, This is who
