In the Loop with Andy Andrews

In this episode, we answer a listener’s question on spousal support.


Every marriage goes through hard times eventually.

  • Men sometimes have a hard time opening up when they feel bad.
  • Go to someone your spouse trusts and ask them to talk to your spouse.
  • Sometimes the person we’re closest to isn’t the person we can hear advice from.
  • Part of their self-doubt is wrapped up in you and feeling like they could provide for/support you better.


Be patient even when they don’t deserve patience

  • Hardship builds bonds.
  • You’re not the person to tell your spouse what book to read or what CD to listen to.
  • You can take an active role by being supportive.


Tune in to hear how Andy’s wife helped him during a hard time.
