I Know You, I Like You and I Have Your Back with Nate Bagley

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.

You can join our 5 Love Languages Challenge at: https://www.onthebrightersideofmarriage.com/love-language-challenge. I promise, it will be so much fun!
