You’ve Got Lael Episode 69: Renegotiating Our Relationships with Terra Anderson

Are you feeling stagnant or stale in your long-term relationship? Are you tired of feeling responsible for maintaining the passion in your marriage? Feeling like the only choices on the table are to live as roommates, have an affair or get divorced?

What if there is another way? What if we've been taught a very narrow view of what a healthy, committed relationship might entail? This episode is for anyone who wants to renegotiate the terms of their long-term relationship AND for those committed to liberation in all its forms.
