Building a Fun Marriage

October 3, 2017

Would your spouse describe you as fun-loving? Pastor Ted Cunningham, author of "Fun Loving You," talks about the fun he has making his wife laugh. Ted reminds couples to enjoy themselves in the midst of life's ups and downs.

When possible, couples should also plan small getaways to have fun and reconnect.
