No marriage—even a sacramental one—is free from conflicts about sex, money, child-rearing, in-laws, and work/life balance. Marriage columnist Karee Santos and her husband, Manuel, a psychiatrist who has been counseling couples for more than fifteen years, explore how applying the Catholic faith to marriage can free us to experience deep, lasting, and soul-satisfying love.
