Try a puzzle and see what it reveals about you and your partner! Oh and do it while you listen to our show!
I have a really guilty pleasure. It's a show called Marriage Boot Camp: Bridezillas. They now have the whole season on Netflix. I can have all the drama without the messiness of actually having it directly in my life and oh yeah it was professional research! Win-win!
The premise of the show is they take the self-proclaimed Bridezillas who are now married and help them with their (surprise, surprise) floundering marriages. I expected a major train wreck but the coaches on the show seemed to really have some great tools to get at some significant relationship hurdles. I won't give away the ending though, you will have to watch for yourself.
Dave and I talk about the show, what we got out of it and how even these sensationalized reality shows can give you a few nuggets of wisdom.
I will be the first to admit I wasn't at my best today. And as always Dave handled it like a trooper. I wanted take this opportunity thank him publicly for being awesome about it and also ask about what his techniques and strategies are for dealing with difficult people. Just to warn you I do use the term "pain in the ass" in case you have sensitive ears.
To add to the excitement we decided to record this show on the go. We were on the way to see our good friend Graham do an improv show and decided to record on the fly. So if you hear sirens we swear the police are not after us.
Somehow along the way baggage is viewed as something only the people on Jerry Springer have. We'll this week Dave and I explain that baggage can be that hot mess, but it can also be so much more. And guess what? We all have it! The trick is figuring out what you have packed and then keeping and tossing the right stuff.
