There are ups and downs in every marriage. Whether it’s stress from work, not enough time for fun, parenting disagreements, poor communication, moody bickering, grieving a loss, or bigger problems like infidelity, there is no such thing as a “perfect” marriage.
However, parents and caregivers of children with disabilities have a unique set of challenges in many arenas, not excluding their love lives.
In this episode of our Parenting Impossible podcast, Annette Hines is joined by her favorite podcast guest, her husband and law partner Mark Worthington.
Through raising and losing a special needs child together, trying out couples’ counseling, starting new businesses, becoming empty nesters, raising a puppy, and everything in between, Annette and Mark have learned quite a lot over the years about their relationship dynamic and how to love each other well in the midst of all of life’s craziness.
To hear their tips for keeping your marriage strong, listen to the episode here.
