Parenting can be a huge strain on any marriage. The burdens on you and your spouse are magnified when you have to raise other humans. But protecting your marriage is still important. So how do you keep your kids from taking over? We invited Ted’s wife, Nancie, on the show to discuss that very topic.
Tom and Crystal come from very different backgrounds. Crystal is from North Georgia and Tom is originally from Taiwan and grew up in Colorado. They’ve been married for five years. Crystal works at Orange leading the XP3 High School Initiative. Tom is a Marketing Manager. Their marriage is a great example of a unique marriage that blends different families of origin.
It’s a little bit of a weird question. One of the great things about marriage is that we can be ourselves – we can let our guard down and be comfortable. We can use that comfort to damage our relationship if we’re not careful, and we find ourselves saying things to our significant other that we wouldn’t say to anyone else.
Today, we have a very special guest with us, Robert Carnes. He is technically always with us, as he is the Managing Editor of MarriedPeople— he’s the guy behind the scenes who takes care of the MarriedPeople blog, social media and produces the podcast.
Today we’re going to discuss how to become our best US. Longtime listeners of the podcast know that Ted wrote a book by the same title because every US is different – What if we really celebrated that God makes all of our marriages really different?
This is part two of our interview with Sandy Wise. If you missed last week, you’ll want to go back and check that out first. Today’s topic isn’t one that most people want to talk about, but it is important. We’re picking up with Sandy’s story after Donald’s cancer treatment.
