162. Making Time for Romance When You Have Kids

Powered by RedCircle

If there was one question we are asked to answer the most often, it’s likely, something along the lines of, “How do you prioritize your marriage when you have kids?”

In this week’s podcast episode, we share some of our best suggestions to make time for romance when you have kids. We share things we have learned, what works for us, and how we’ve improved our communication over the years.

We also talk about some exercise-related things that are saving our lives, what we are currently reading, conspiracy theories, and how I applied something from a book I’m reading to a hard conversation recently.
