Let's face it, the odds are that most of us will encounter illness or injury in our lives, and the odds go up as we get older.
Besides staying as healthy as we possibly can, how can we insure that our relationships are strong enough to weather whatever comes our way?
Today's interview is a refreshing and powerful look at how a couple can choose to handle a significant trauma together. You'll hear just a little background noise toward the end as Rachelle and Chris's dogs Peaty and Roger sneak into the interview with their favorite chew toys.

In this week's podcast, we talk about our visit to a Viennese sex product store (and how it weirdly looks like an Apple store). Why did we do it and what did we learn about each other? Well, you'll have to listen in.
We're in Vienna right now as part of our International Love Affair tour, celebrating the release of our fourth book, Married with Luggage: What We Learned About Love by Traveling the World. Vienna is magical, and we could easily imagine ourselves living in this gorgeous city.
But back to the topic at hand. To expand on the topic of sex and intimacy in a long-term relationship, we're talking today with Janet W. Hardy, coauthor of the landmark book, The Ethical Slut: A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships and Other Adventures.
Even if you're not interested in adding more people to your relationship, you will learn a lot about communication, boundaries, and the expansion of love for your own monogamous relationship. We certainly did!
