I love these guys!
She comes from the Great White North, and he's from the Windy City. What brings them together is a whole lot of love, and now they're ready to share their story, experiences, beliefs, and family with the world! This is a great listen for anyone, young or old, single or married!
genuine stuff for couples
great relevant tips from people my age. it's awesome to hear someone talking transparently about experiences that i've gone through (marriage), and to come (kids).
you can tell these guys are married, just by the way they playfully (and not playfully) jab and encourage each other. good stuff. will definitely be on the lookout for some new content!
