E3: Jeff & Abby Nickel – How to Have a Successful Relationship I The Sandbox with Justin Peters Show Notes

Welcome to the third episode of The Sandbox. My experimental project to develop interviewing skills and discover the nuances of creating a podcast.

Today’s guests are Jeff and Abby Nickel. I brought on these high school sweethearts to discuss how to have a successful relationship. Throughout the 10 years of knowing them and watching their relationship grow, they have inspired me to become a better partner. We discuss the importance of forgiveness, creating a separate and joint identity, planning a wedding together, and the challenge of buying a house and moving in together.

I hope you enjoy!
