Should You Get Married? (Part 2)

Today is a very special day for us as we celebrate nine years of being married! It’s been quite a journey so far, and we thought it would be fun to do an episode on how our marriage has been together. 

In this mushy episode, we talk about how we have grown together, the things we appreciate about each other, and how “for better worse” is actually one of the greatest gifts anyone could ever possibly receive when with the right person.  

Join us in today’s cheesy and light-hearted episode as we chat about our married life.

Should You Get Married? (Part 1)

Today we’re going to be breaking down a big topic, marriage! With our 9th wedding anniversary comin up this week, we decided to do a couple of episodes on married life. We will be discussing some of our personal theories and philosophies about the institution of marriage. 

In today’s episode, we will break down quite a few topics.

Is marriage meant for everyone? Or at least the majority? Do the benefits of marriage outweigh the drawbacks that come along with it? What has got everyone so obsessed over a simple piece of paper that binds them together?

Should You Have a Childless Marriage? (Part 1)

In this episode we’re talking about our decision to have a childless marriage and how we think it has given us the opportunity to have a more adventurous lifestyle.

We both wanted to wait before having kids – but most people get married and have kids sooner than later. We intentionally waited and are still waiting and for us, it has worked out well. Should you do the same? 

We share our thoughts on what we’ve been able to do without kids but also recognize how much we could be missing by not having children of our own. We also touch on the idea of adoption.
