NOTE: This episode first aired in the midst of all that was 2020.


We're often told that relationships are a 50-50 venture, but I disagree. Taking 100% responsibility for our actions and attitudes can revolutionize the way we love and connect. 

My husband Jeremy is back to chat love and marriage - and making it all work for the long haul. If you didn't catch his first visit, I highly recommend listening to episode 186 "Secrets of My Marriage" (via this Apple Podcasts link or this Spotify link!)
