Three Minute Love Stories

Three Minute Love Stories

2019-01-3000:11:32

Some of the very best love stories come in small packages. Last year we asked all of you to tell us your own stories in three minutes or less, and let me tell you a lot can happen in three minutes. You can fall in love with someone in three minutes. You can fall out of love in three minutes. While we're working on Season Two we wanted to share a few of these three-minute love stories with you. In them, you are going to meet Colleen and Sam who fell for each other when they were just 15 years old, got married, and figured out how to fall in love again after Sam had an affair. You’ll meet Shannon, who talks about what it's like to support your spouse when they decide to do one of the most challenging things in the world. And finally we'll hear from Christie, on how her marriage has evolved and persevered through her daughter’s special needs diagnoses. All of these stories could have been full episodes, but there is something special about boiling them down to their essence. The essence of a marriage. So, take about 15 minutes, settle back, and enjoy!Leave your committed story at 404-996-1173 Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
The actor Nico Tortorella plays a sexy heartthrob on the romantic comedy television show Younger. Nico's real life love story with fitness star Bethany Meyers is so much more interesting. Bethany and Nico are both non-binary, queer and in a polyamorous marriage. This special bonus episode will have you questioning everything you think you know about how we define a marriage, why we choose monogamy and how we build our own families. Nico and Bethany are so open and honest about how they got where they are today after twelve years of on and off dating and sexual exploration. We could have held onto this one for season two, but it was just too good for us to wait! Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers

I haven't listened to this yet... I'm not sure if I'll be able to. roughly 2 years ago my other half had a psychotic break and for a long time I've been occasionally writing to her or myself...im not sure which sometimes. I write about how hard it is trying to help her while the new person that's taken over her tries her best to be mercilessly cruel. I don't know if I'll ever get to meet the woman I'm desperately in love with again. it's possible because of her family's history that the fix could literally be as simple as supplementing some lacking hormones naturally but after trying everything I can legally and other things that aren't, I haven't been able to get her the help she needs. I can't give up and leave her alone trapped by the unassailable reasoning of the illogical, where any and everything that happens is further proof of whatever she needs to deny the truth.

I've never had another podcast bring tears to my eyes as frequently as this one. Shout out to all those involved, and shout out to the concept in general. Love is a beautiful thing, that can transcend pain like nothing else. Thank you for giving me amazing perspective that I can take back to my own relationship. thank you for Committed.

I enjoyed this, but I am extremely disappointed that you did not feature a polyamorous long term relationship or marriage.

I'm loving this podcast! I haven't made it through an episode yet that hasn't made me cry. As someone who is about to marry a man who I've been long distance with for a third of our relationship and will be moving across the country to be with, there has been a few times where I have not been confident in myself. I'm so glad I started listening to this podcast to restore that confidence and sense of strength for the upcoming hardships I know we will face. Thank you! And I cannot wait to read the book
