Quotes: 

“The thing that makes a marriage good is thinking that each person got the better end of the deal and I definitely think that’s true with me, I definitely traded up in the draft with Bev” - Tom 


“ We came from divorced homes, so if we got mad we’d say ‘it’s not gonna work,’ ‘we just need to get a divorce.’...and one day I said we can’t say that anymore...what you speak is your destiny. ” -Beverly 


“Commitment has no exits.. And exits are things that you are passionate about more than you're passionate about working on your marriage.” -Beverly 



“About 65% of marital conflicts don’t come to an agreement.. But a healthy couple can actually dialogue.” - Beverly 


“We say that this phrase will heal your marriage, guaranteed ‘honey you may be right’ … which is really really tough to say in the middle of a conflict but if you can say that, and mean it, it humbles you.” - Tom 


“If you’re willing to be vulnerable you can be hurt, but you will never have intimacy without vulnerability...intimacy is the key to deep healthy relationships” -Tom
