Episode 31 – How Has Leaving Out “Divorce as an Option” Impacted Our Marriage?

It has been an exciting week for the Dugan Family! I started a new job, Fall baseball started for Jacob, the Nutcracker cast list was posted, and I spoke at a Bible Club for middle school students. We also share how we carve out alone time during the workweek to stay connected, and why divorce is not an option for us in our marriage.

Liv’s question to me: How did your first week at work go?

My question to Liv: Dr. Corey Allen from SimpleMarriage wrote a blog post called “Why You Should Never Say the ‘D-Word’ in Your Marriage” talking about treating divorce like it were a vulgar word. (Actually, that post was written by Sean.) How would you say that principle, of leaving divorce out as an option in our marriage, has impacted our own marriage?

Our question to you: Do you struggle to stay connected with your spouse or family on a daily basis? What do you wish you were able to do with your family that you aren’t able to do right now?
