FoC 105: Our Marriage Advice: All the Tough Stuff With None of the Romance

Every so often we like to do an episode with just the two of us to answer some of the questions we get frequently from listeners. Today we’re covering….drumroll….MARRIAGE! It was Valentine’s Day when we recorded and considering how we are indeed the queens of romance (har har) we got to talking about love, marriage, and all that mushy stuff. We try to keep things real and honest.

We’re hoping that all our single listeners don’t run straight for the convent after listening to this episode. (Or maybe that was our plan all along…increasing those religious vocations!)

In this episode we talk about the ups and downs that all marriages go through, what mindset shifts have helped us in embracing our vocation to marriage, and how we’re awful at romantic gestures but we’re pretty sure they aren’t what really matters in a committed relationship. So grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

In this episode we talked about:
