Marriage is hard! Not only does the relationship take work, but maintaining a household does too.

Nicole and Andy tackled two listener questions about how they make their marriage work and how they divide up household duties.

The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman is a book that has really helped our marriage. The concept may be simple, but it can be difficult to remember when you're in the midst of work, busy young parenting, and global pandemics.

When we do remember to love each other the way we like to be loved, our relationship truly grows. Nicole and I discuss what our love languages are and discuss our rocky path to finding how each of us likes to be loved.
