Moe and Jenna discuss the hard work involved with relationships and various solutions on the common problems.
Relationships Are Hard Work
During two contrasting meetings today, I walked away with a greater appreciation of just how contagious someone with a sense of humor can be. After a somewhat inspiring coffee visit with a bold entrepreneur pitching a very cool idea, I had the opportunity to meet a young man, just six month out of college, who had me captivated as much with his wit as with his ambition.
In a very cordial manner, he acknowledged his appreciation for my time, and quickly proceeded to ask me a question about his relationship with his wife. Sensing my state of shock, he leaned towards me with a smile and said ‘oh, don’t worry – we’ve been together since high school, and she’s very lucky to have me.‘ I couldn’t help by chuckle, and as I began to say something, he stopped me to say ‘and, I bet you’re thinking that I’m too young to get married.‘ My mind was certainly glued to that thought, still I didn’t say anything.
Still leaning forward, he asked my advice on ‘having a super awesome relationship’ with his wife. Fortunately for me, I’ve been blessed with such a relationship for the past 24 years and could lend some advice, and to add some humor to a very serious topic, I turned to my iPad for this advice from Jenna McCarthy.
