Season 2 Ep. 1 of The #staymarried Podcast: Why Your Story Matters To Your Marriage

Season 2 Episode 1 of The #staymarried Podcast: Your Story Matters to Your MarriageHave you missed us? Well we’re back with new episodes of The #staymarried Podcast just in time for your Summer road trips! Season 2 is all about YOU! We’ve received lots of questions and stories through Ask #staymarried and, with the help of a few experts, we’re ready to tackle them! Each week we’ll be delving into a topic that you all have asked about.

For this first week, we’re diving into the past. Tony and I share a few memories from our wedding day, which was 9 years ago today! But, we’re not just reminiscing. One of the key indicators of the strength of a couple’s marriage and commitment is how that couple thinks about their past.

Go ahead and have a listen…

As promised in the podcast, here’s the TEDx talk from my friend Dr. Rachel Terrill: Story Your Way To a Happy Marriage…


And, for a little fun, here’s our Wedding Day Beach Dance…

Season 2 Episode 1 of The #staymarried Podcast: Your Story Matters to Your Marriage

For today’s homework ask each other some questions and dig into how you each tell your story. Start with these:
♥ What are some of your favorite memories of our wedding day?
♥ Would you ever want to renew our vows? What would that look like? Where would we do it? Who would we invite?

The way you tell your story matters. We hope you take some time this week to talk about your own story and build up those loving memories and future dreams.

  1. Love this and it’s so great to have you guys back.. I was wondering where you were and I can tell you’ve been working on amazing things! Happy Anniversary! My husband and I just celebrated 30 years married on June 6th. We’ve known each other for 38 years. That is a big deal!!

    Lots of fond memories of growing up together! We are truly looking forward to our empty-nest years and are figuring out all of our options. Thanks for the podcasts and all that you do to inspire marriages!

    1. Thanks so much, Laura! And congrats to you and your husband. Nearly 40 years together! That’s exciting!

  2. I’m so glad you guys are back with a second season! I listened to your first season and bought the Gottman book, and my husband and I have been reading it aloud before bed. This is my second marriage and his first, and although things are awesome now (we’ve been together four years) we feel it’s healthy to always be open to how things can be even better. And to have the tools for when conflicts arise. Thank you so much for what you’re doing here, Michelle and Tony 🙂

  3. I just started listening to y’all literally two days ago, and already I appreciate the podcast! I absolutely love the Tedx Talk because it made so much sense!! My husband now, but boyfriend of 7 years at the time, we went through so much hardship. Long distances, both locally and internationally, deaths in the family, etc. I used to share my story of our relationship as a sad one cause that was what I was feeling at the time, but now looking back on it, I realize how much stronger we are as a couple now. In reality, I do have a beautiful story to tell! 🙂
