We are LIVE again!

We are LIVE again talking about how to make a marriage last! I’m Joelle and Dr. Dabney here again going live look-ins expert I think over the weekend Dr. Dabney celebrated a milestone – tell me about what that milestone does in case she caught my two second story on Instagram it was about my is my husband’s in my 27th wedding anniversary which truly seems impossible yes I mean so I’ve been married nine years and I guess my biggest question and I think I asked Dr. Dabney this all the time but one thing that people asked you is you know how do you make it 27 years how do you make it one year it’s what’s that biggest piece of advice you would give any married couple you know yeah at last well since I treat marriages I guess not no but not always a couple but sometimes I just treat one person in the marriage which fixes the marriage by the way that’s one hint if you need help you gotta go but that’s my advice in general it there is no magic bullet to get you through all the problems you’re gonna face so you need help go get it we got help Darryl and I we had parenting disagreements and it wasn’t easy I’m still harder for him than me because I’m in the field but you know it’s never easy to ask for help but the relief and the amount of trouble you overcome is so worth it it’s just it’s just silly it’s almost silly not to get help because we made so much progress so fast and I don’t think we would have made it or at least wouldn’t be as happy where we are now if we didn’t get that help do you have any advice for those people that you know are not married yet that are engaged or you know kind of making that step there’s no any premarital advice so to speak it’s sort of a same thing if you if you start by having the understanding that were going to get help when we need it then just becomes more automatic it’s not so oh my god we need help something’s wrong with us it just becomes more second nature I know the Catholic faith has you do that mmm right so and I think that’s …
