In this episode of the Beyond Your Wedding Day Podcast,we continue our discussion on the book Stripped Down by Tony and Alisa DiLorenzo from oneextraordinarymarriage.com. We discuss chapter 3 entitled “Enough Already.”

***We got Mandy’s audio fixed, sounds much better!

Mike and Mandy discuss the craziness over the last week that had Mandy gone for 3 days and Mike at home with the 3 girls by himself!

We gave an update on our Thrive90 Fitness Program.

We then discussed our 90 Days of Sex Challenge. We had a rough spot with Mandy leaving, but we’re back on track.

-Sometimes you just have to say no to outside commitments in order to say yes to your marriage

*people are just so busy today that the family often gets neglected

*your marriage will inevitably get pushed down the list as you say yes to each committee, club, meeting, hobby, etc.

-It’s not necessary to attend every family event, birthday party, school or church event, etc.

*this rocked both of us hard!

*just spend time at home playing with each other

-Don’t overschedule your children’s activities

*Mandy and I have been discussing that a lot lately

-If you feel like you can squeeze one more thing in, remember that something will get squeezed out

-Sometimes it takes getting away from extended family in order to form a life of your own

-You MUST protect your marriage from all outside influences (even family or friends!) (sometimes especially family or friends)


I’d love to help you and your spouse or fiance get on the same page financially. Here’s how.

    Hey Yall!  I’m brand new to your site/podcasts.  I saw a link from One Marriages’ FB page.  I’m a 26 year old female, living in Houston Texas with my boyfriend.  We’re trying to save money, pay off our debt, and get married soon!  Thanks for your stuff-off to catch up on some old podcasts.
