Pets and relationships, plus Michael Smalley on compatibility in marriage, and a question on dating someone who's divorced. Featured musical artist: Kutless
My Daughter Fluffy
Yes, some people consider their pets as children; is there anything wrong with that? This week's roundtable was prompted by a letter we received from a girl whose fiancé thinks her love for her dog is providing him competition, and he's worriedthis may present problems in their marriage. Intrigued, we brought some pet lovers into the studio to talk prioritizing their pets in light of relationships, time, money — even their walk with God.
Another Smalley's in the house! Michael Smalley, brother of Greg, son of Gary and author of More Than a Match with his wife, Amy, joins me to discuss the importance of compatibility in a relationship. Michael shares tons of hilarious and revealing anecdotes from his own marriage to illustrate what's important when it comes to making a marriage (especially that first year) work.
Dating and Divorce

This week's listener wants to know what to know when it comes to dating someone who's been divorced. Do research? Tread lightly? Get counsel? All of the above? Counselor Joann Condie weighs in.
