082 SelfWork: Confronting the Loneliness and Apathy of Living Parallel Lives
Loneliness is hard no matter when or where it happens. This episode, sponsored by Audible.com, gives ten ways to combat or confront apathy and loneliness in your relationship or marriage.

And the consequent apathy can be just as destructive as anger or even aggressiveness, simply due to the fact that you or your spouse don’t care enough anymore to fight for the health or the intimacy of the relationship. How do relationships get there and how can you get out? Here are some answers.
