Kristy interviews Marie and Kyle Elser about their marriage (they’ve been married 20 years and are a mixed-fiath couple), their faith journeys, and the facebook groups they founded and are administrators for to help mixed-faith couples. Another Testament of Marriage is for believing spouses, and Former Mormons with Believing Spouses is the other group. Fascinating couple!
Together the three of us also answer a question for an anonymous listener who is concerned about his marriage, and asked Kristy about how to handle a particular situation in which his wife (believing spouse) is concerned about him coming out as a non-believer for their children’s sake, specifically expressing to him that if they didn’t have children she would feel more comfortable with however he decided to live his new belief system (in terms of church attendnace, word of wisdom, etc). Their group for believing spouses is an excellent, confidential place to air such concerns and receive feedback from others who have been through similar emotions.

Marie and Kyle – Thanks so much for not only the conversation, but your efforts to help both parts of a mixed faith marriage. I am in such a marriage, but have not yet come out. I will be doing so soon, so the information here is very helpful.
Kristy – I think this is the first podcast the last little while where I didn’t get to hear any infant cooing! I miss it! I have NO idea how you can do this podcast with all the little ones you have around. Thank you. Do take care of yourself. If you don’t you might end up needing to go see a therapist! How bad would that be!!! 🙂
BTW – the “Another Testament of Marriage” link does not seem to be working.
