Show Notes

Welcome to the 4th Pop-Up Episode, lovebugs! This episode covers the 7 stages of marriage (for context), but the larger conversation centers on the value of wife-friends and couple–friends as I point to the 4th item on our Fun Girl Summer Wishlist—read something satisfying, steamy, or sexy. While our wishlist is designed for both singles and spouses to participate, this episode is for my wives! But, even singles can take some lessons here. I close the episode with 7 research-based benefits of having married couple friends for your marriage.
