Show Notes

When it comes to the engagement season, most of us probably think about planning “the big day” but it’s important to be preparing for marriage, not just a wedding celebration. On this episode we’re back with our friends, Jo and Laia, recent newlyweds. Karl has a conversation with them to discover the process they took in preparing for the beginning of their marriage. They share some myths and mindsets they had to overcome, conversations to have and questions to ask, and healthy ways to feel supported through the process. They also talk about wedding stresses, gender roles, learning to share a space, and who should pick up the dirty socks!
