Is opposite-sex marriage a feasible path for guys with same-sex attraction? How does such a marriage relationship work? Is there physical and sexual attraction? How does communication, accountability, and sex work?

Tom and Elliott welcome a married man and his wife, talking the ins and outs of their “mixed orientation” marriage. Their high school romance. Their engagement. Their wedding night. Their journey to conferences in pursuit of support. Their marriage.

We also welcome another special female guest to the show. Because when we make history, we like to make the biggest splash possible.

It’s a deep dive into marriage, and we hope everyone — single or married — enjoys the episode below!
