When we take our vows we don’t necessarily think about the bad stuff that might happen, especially sickness.


The thing is that eventually you or your spouse will become sick. How do you handle life when sickness does happen?

This week we were hit from a few different sides.

Both of our dads had some health problems come up and Tony got sick as well.

The strain that health issues put on our marriage is real.  Making intimacy a priority during sickness & health issues is what we discuss in this episode.

We talk about how we deal with health problems and what’s changed since we made intimacy a priority.

  1. Hearing you guys talk about scheduling intimacy reminds me of an episode of Roseanne. There’s an episode that I remember so clearly and it’s one where Roseanne is talking to her sister about how Dan missed their Wednesday night ritual & Jackie asks, “You schedule that stuff?” And Roseanne’s reply is classic. She said, “It’s not ONLY Wednesday, but it’s ALWAYS Wednesday.” I bring this up b/c you all made an important point: while scheduling takes away from the spontaneity, sometimes it just helps to have that day to look forward to. There’s no guesswork, no rejection. And if that one day of intimacy opens the door for more spontaneous encounters, that’s like icing on the cake.

    • Trish,

      You’re so right that scheduling does challenge how some people view intimacy but if it’s on the calendar, it never gets missed. And let’s be honest who does like icing on their cake 🙂


  2. Thank you for a thought provoking podcast. Our prayers go out to you and your family for your Dad, Alisa.
