Marriage in Quarantine by Josh Spurlock

During this time of quarantine, many married couples are experiencing tension. The presenting issues may have been around for years, but due to the busyness of life, they could previously be avoided. But now, with so many couples quarantined together, the underlying problems are rising to the surface.

Welcome to another live and transformative episode of #MyCounselorLIVE “Marriage in Quarantine”. In these extraordinary times, we’ve all experienced unique challenges and disruptions in our lives, none more profound than the impact on our relationships, especially within the context of marriage. Today, we have the privilege of having Licensed Therapist and Certified Sex Therapist, Josh Spurlock, join us for a conversation that is deeply relevant and timely.
