If there’s one question we need to answer most often, it’s probably something along the lines of, “How do you prioritize your marriage when you have kids?”
In this week’s podcast episode, we share some of our best suggestions for making time for romance when you have kids. We share things we’ve learned, what works for us, and how we’ve improved our communication over the years.
We also talk about life-saving exercises, what we’re currently reading, conspiracy theories, and how I recently applied something from a book I’m reading to a difficult conversation.
