Difficult conversations in marriage are inevitable. Unless you're avoiding them. But that's a recipe for not living fully alive together. Whether it's parenting, sex, holidays, work schedules, or in-laws, all couples deal with "an elephant in the room."

How can we best show up in these conversations? In this episode, Josh and Christi talk about how to talk about hard things in marriage. Some of the highlights are:

* Why it's important to start a hard conversation with connection as your motive, not expectation.* How to set the tone in your conversations.* How to respond to your spouse without flipping your lid.* Leading with a team approach and an "us against the world" attitude with your spouse.
