phase, realizing they wanted to commit to each other, getting pregnant right away, their surprise wedding (to the 3rd power), marriage counseling, being an interfaith couple, fostering a multifaith family, the distinction between religion & faith, traveling around the world with their kids & how they talk to their kids about sex & sexuality (hot tip: get the book It's So Amazing! by Robie H.
