EP 215 – Creating a Marriage You Want to Be In with Ryan and Blair Critch

Marriage is a fun journey, but it has its ups and downs. Couples sometimes drift apart, and marriages fail for many different reasons.

Ryan and Blair Critch are on a mission to help couples build better relationships. They created a free Marriage Movement community on Facebook to help married couples solidify and strengthen their relationships and grow together as couples.
