59. Have you checked out of your marriage?

Anna is back from her trip visiting her dude, other than the COVID test it went well, we won't mention the cheese smuggling ........... She's walking a thin line! Sara is in a heatwave and doing panic uniform shopping preparing for the kids going back to school. It's a shock to all of us. Parents stay sane.
 
The relationship desk of love is reporting the baby dust method, this will help you pre-pick the sex of your child. There's a huge following on social media with people signing the praises of the method. Hmmm, there are some concerns amongst the girls. Very conversation provoking this week.
 
Today's hot topic is have you checked out of your marriage? More common than you might think, it's not something people are fully aware of and honest with themselves. This is a big hot topic! Sara needs a nap after today's hot topic ...
 
Finally the question this week is "My partner wants to spend a shit load of money on a fancy new car and I just agree, how do we fix this?" Anna immediately thinks of Tesla! This is a great question, tune in to find out what the girls have to say, spoiler alert, the first thing that comes to mind is to go and sort it out yourselves, the girls want no part! Oh and then they strap themselves in and tackle it head on.
 
A feisty start the week and Sara's off to soak up the last of the sun, but before she goes she shared her crazy dreams, involving bulls and unwanted visitors. Take a listen to find out more!
 
Till next week!
