The Secret to Staying Happily Married

We’ve got a “Marriage Pop-Quiz” for you! Would you ditch your spouse to catch a flight?

Imagine you’re traveling with your spouse. They go to the bathroom while you wait for your flight to board. But they don’t come back. And you’re going to miss your flight. Should you board it and ditch your spouse? What would you do in this situation?

According to Fr. Mike, there is only one correct answer to this question. And the answer might surprise you.

Today, Fr. Mike shares a funny story about an older married couple’s problem when traveling together and his shock and surprise at the variety of responses he received when asking other married couples what they would do in this situation.
