If you're married, you likely stood up at the altar on your wedding day and made vows to stick together for better and for worse, in sickness and in health. And maybe, like many couples, your vows have been tested because of an injury, illness, or chronic condition affecting your daily life. The challenge of chronic pain puts a unique kind of stress on a marriage—it can bring you together and grow your relationship in new ways, or it can wear down the joy and closeness that you share.

Our returning guests for this episode are Chris and Jamie Bailey. They have walked their own road filled with medical issues, back pain, and other chronic conditions. In this episode, they offer their unique insight into building a strong marriage despite difficult circumstances.

Chris and Jamie share with us:
- The importance of choosing to depend on God and each other
- How chronic pain and health issues can negatively impact your marriage
- Ways to stay connected and keep stressors from stealing your joy
- Practical ways to help and encourage your spouse dealing with pain
- And ways to prepare your marriage now to withstand whatever the future may hold

We hope this episode brings you encouragement today!
