Do you love to storm out when you’re fighting with your spouse? Maybe get a good door slam in and draw things out a bit? Conflict happens. Especially with those partners we love so much and that’s exactly what we’re talking about today with The Peppers.

Gerard Brown and Jessie Artigue launched the now popular ‘Marriage is Funny’ podcast just two days after a serious discussion about divorce. Four years later, they credit the health of their connection to a podcast community that developed in response to the radical vulnerability they bring to their listeners each week. They refuse to claim the title of “RELATIONSHIP EXPERTS” because they continue to figure things out just like everybody else. Residing in sunny Long Beach, CA, Gerard and Jessie believe that talking things out and tight bear hugs fix (almost) anything, have committed to what they call ‘Great Love,’ and strive to find the humor in every mess. 

As a special gift, Jessie and Gerard are sharing their free video series about the three “marriage myths” that nearly ruined their relationship with MSW listeners at meetthepeppers.com/momstrugglingwell!

WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT:
  • how Jessie and Gerard’s struggling marriage lead them to start their podcast

  • how we can grow in relationships through conflict

  • having conflicts well

  • better communication by changing the language around your internal story

  • reframing marital myths

  • grieving unmet expectations

  • advice for making friends as a couple

  • supporting a partner with an anxiety disorder
