Trick Interview – Kenny

      • Mark, I’m getting married soon. Would love to hear your wisdom on what you’ve learned over your years on marriage and what it takes to make a successful marriage. You seem like such a good hearted, patient, loving man. That it surprised me to hear you say you too are divorced after 17 years. Just made me think of someone with your great qualities and well off financially wanted out, will I survive?? Sorry it’s a random question just feels like the closer I get to getting married the more friends and people I admire get divorced or are divorced.

        • YouTube comment section is definitely not the place to have this conversation, but here goes…I think if we take care of our mental health and stay on a straight path with our work, our heart and try to be someone that our partner feels lucky to have in their lives there’s a great chance we’ll remain inspiring and attractive to our spouse. With these things in place, we can better change, adapt and grow old together as a couple. The more we’re able to unconditionally love ourselves, the more we’ll be able to love our partners regardless of what they’re going through. I’ll add that the amount of hard work, courage, and patience we think we’ll need to accomplish a task is roughly ten times greater than what we expect. This is a very oversimplified version of my thoughts on marriage. Just have tons of courage, work harder than your partner and pray for luck and you’ll both be happy for a long time. Our hormones get us into this and our strength and courage are what makes it last.
      • Laura Carpenter
        • One of my favorite guys you have interviewed! He was real and truthful, something different about him.
    2. Robyn Ragone
      • I can only speak from my own experience but watching somebody addicted to crack try to get hard is absolutely the most unbelievably bizarre situation they know it’s not gonna happen but they will not give up they will hold you fucking hostage It’s fucking awful.
    3. McVic
      • It’s so strange, you take people who’ve done some bad things to others and to themselves and you help so many people see the good in them, and the human side in them. I feel a lot of times people see other people out on the streets but don’t really SEE people you know? There’s no human connection or sympathy. But your videos really change the way a lot of us watching look at people who are struggling.
      • This came to mind because I see a lot of commenters frustrated with people saying he’s a good guy or a sincere guy and whatnot, but I just wanted to say that you are a really amazing interviewer and im so glad this channel exists

      • I don’t understand how he can look so good living like that for so long. When I clicked the thumbnail I thought he was a regular guy who went to to prostitutes, not a life long drug abuser/street person. Amazing.
