One of the most significant differences between marriages that make it and those that don't, is how couples can maintain their closeness and unity of purpose, even as we grow and change over the years.
In this podcast, we talk quite a bit about some of the challenges we've had with meshing home, job, personal development, family obligations, etc. with the desire to stay a couple, first and foremost.
You're going to grow and change; that part is unavoidable. Here are our thoughts on doing it in a way that strengthens the marriage rather than fragments it.
We'd love to hear your thoughts on this and our other marriage tips and tricks! Comment here on the podcast, on our blog, or on Facebook!

In our third podcast, Jeremy and Kari talk about their pre-marriage relationship, the pitfalls of "shacking up", and how marriage changed their relationship (even though they had been living together and even bought a house before they tied the knot).
Being married is better in every way - financially, sexually, romantically, having children, and more. It's even better for your health and longevity!
