In today’s episode, I sit down with my friend Jamee Andelin. We interviewed each other about all things pertaining to score keeping in marriage, sex and intimacy and overcoming and living with our differences. This episode is fun and light hearted, but we discuss extremely common issues that arise in marriage.
I know you are going to love this episode. Remember that sharing is caring, so if you do love it, make sure you share it with a friend who would love it too.

This week’s episode with Nate Bagley is one of my all-time favorites! He’s an experienced marriage researcher, interviewing some of the greats, such as John and Julie Gottman, Gary Chapman and Sue Johnson.
He teaches us his framework for building a strong foundation of friendship within your marriage, so you are able to have hard conversations and withstand conflict. His pillars of friendship include the framework of I know you, I like you and I have your back.
You will love the simplicity and ease with which he explains these three pillars and the way he uses experiences from his own life to illustrate these concepts beautifully. He talks about an experiment he did with his wife in his first year of marriage to find out her love language and we made a challenge out of it. Whether you have been married for 3 days or 30 years, it’s such a boost to any relationship to know your spouse’s love language.
