S3 E18 | Good Listeners Make Great Lovers

In this episode we tackle another Ask #staymarried question. Are you doomed if you and your partner don’t see eye-to-eye… or doomed if your interests don’t align? This weeks question brings up the topic of misaligned interests.

If you’re ‘checking out’ when your partner tries to share their interest, you’re missing a huge opportunity to show love. So we’re talking about listening well, as well as provide a few easy tips on how to be a better and more loving listener.
