Marriage Matters: Here’s How to Invest in Yours – 062

Attitudes toward marriage have changed. Fewer couples are choosing to marry and, instead, are living together and starting families without the additional commitment that marriage brings. Often, their reasoning is that marriage doesn’t last, but we do not believe it has to be this way! We know from experience that relationships take the investment of time and attention and can always be improved. Recent stats on millennials reveal that those who are getting married are staying married. So, something is working. In this episode, co-hosts Darlene Brock (married more decades than she wants to admit—but only so you won’t calculate her age) and Julie Graham (married nearly 12 years before she was widowed) share their real-life tips and tricks for making a good marriage great, and a ho-hum marriage healthier. Whether you’re married or not, listen in and consider sharing it with a friend who wants to connect more deeply with the man in her life, too.
