We pause to consider what we’ve learned about Emotional Labor. Laura digs deeper into the problems she’s encountered because of the connection she made between work ethic and approval (and perhaps more importantly, disapproval). Leslie shares the same, but in connection with growing up in a very conservative Christian household before discovering what grace really means (and how it helps him do the dishes… really). Then we discuss male role models, and what may or may not be part of the feminist conversation. And of course, we close with Heart Loop – the things we do to improve our marriage and champion each other.
