#SurvivingMarriage – Is Marriage 50/50 or 100/100? Ep 012 – Let’s run the numbers! Let’s talk percentages. Is marriage 1/2 & 1/2 or is it whole and whole? Isn’t that up for interpretation?

#SurvivingMarriage – 50+ Years of Marriage with Our Parents Ep 010 – What better way of marking the 10th episode of the podcast than with a talk with Rufus’ parents, who have been married over 50 years, about marriage, life, inlaws, society and much more.
