In this episode, Michelle chats with her husband, Phil, about the first chapter of their new book, Classic Marriage: Staying in Love as Your Odometer Climbs.
Listen in to the podcast episode to hear their conversation in Phil's first time behind the mic, and laugh along as he provides some advice for husbands.
Michelle and Phil go through the Tune-Up Time questions at the end of chapter 1. You can get a downloadable version of those questions to view on a phone or to print and bring with you for date night. Find the file at www.classicmarriagebook.com
Also, we invite you to the book launch party on July 23!
Is your marriage a classic? A classic is something of high quality and lasting value. In a marriage there will be hours of maintenance work, tinkering, breakdowns, meltdowns, blowups, cute photo ops, wear and tear, overhauls, memories, vacations, celebrations, and repairs. There will be moments where you haul yourselves back to “the garage” for work. Like a trusty old truck, a classic marriage isn’t perfect, but who can put a price tag on it?
As the odometer climbs, everyday challenges leave behind rust and ripped upholstery. Dings and scrapes come with the memories. The odors left by spilled milk and stale French fries replace the new car smell. But even with a few sputters and an occasional stall out, that baby is still moving down the road. Welcome to real life!
In this book, you’ll find:
- Inspiration, honesty, and self-deprecating humor from the front seat of adventure with Michelle and Phil.
- Tips to get under the hood and keep your marriage on the road to a long future.
- Tune-up questions in every chapter to work on your communication.
- Tools for how to tinker with overheated emotions and repair broken hearts.
- Witty comments from Phil – with a chance of dad jokes.
Get behind the wheel of your own love story, roll the windows down, and feel the wind in your hair as you keep that classic on the road!
