Jeff and Mandy are back with episode 2 of Season 2 of the Marriage More podcast. In this episode, they discuss the premier of their reality TV show that recently aired on TLC. The first show primarily focused on the couples “lack of intimacy”, how Mandy doesn’t ask for help with the kids, and Jeff’s inability to unplug from his businesses. But is that really what happens “behind closed doors”? Tune in to the podcast to find out!
Did you catch the first episode of Behind Closed Doors: The American Family? We too were watching it live and seeing all the good, the edited and the kids screaming right along with you all. After we saw the first episode we thought it would be best to do a recap… and give you a little behind the scenes of what was really happening in our life and our marriage during the filming.
It’s no secret that reality TV shows are edited. One of the main themes of episode one was sex. Yep, we talked about our sex life on national TV. Why? Because one of our main hopes in filming the show was to shine some light on what really happens in marriages and that includes sex. Sex is no easy thing for couples to navigate through, and we are included in that. Whether you’ve got no kids or four kids, sex is something that couples have to learn to communicate about it. And back to the editing of reality TV… this first episode was edited to focus a lot of intimacy.
Tune in to hear how we’ve been learning to communicate better about what our personal needs and wants are. Along with a little backstory to what it really was like in our home during the filming and what our thoughts were after seeing episode one.
