Now on to the couples. Where to begin? If we’re talking about Jennifer and Curtis, I could probably write a book similar to Fifty Shades of Grey (but with pregnant ladies) on their relationship. I know, I know, terrible thought. Marcel and Susan’s book on the other hand might take place in a nunnery (or at least somewhere where large robes are worn and sex is certainly banned)! I couldn't have had couples at more opposite ends of the spectrum, but this is why it made so much sense to push them together. Each had something to learn from the other, and I thought it would be far more effective for them to see the other extreme in action than for me to just talk about it. Besides, it is so hard to think, communicate, and resolve issues in the daily routine of our normal lives. Getting away and disarming ourselves is sometimes the only way to get a real breakthrough, which indeed we did! Victorious once again!
I do want to also say something about how brave these couples were. It is not easy to admit you have problems, and it is certainly not easy to then go away and do something about it. These couples faced each other and their fears for their babies and for themselves, and you have to admire that. So many people just put up with dissatisfaction or let a relationship fold; I dare people to fix the things that are wrong in their lives. It takes guts, but it’s well worth it.
