This episode is part 1 of a 2-part series with Jaimee (@jaimeesmart) and Colton (@the.story.of.colton.smart) Smart. In this episode we talk about how they met and got married, how Colton’s dad passed away when he was 14, and how that impacted their dating relationship and marriage. Colton talks about what it was like for his family and how Jaimee supports him, and Jaimee talks about what it was like coming into a family where she never had an opportunity to get to know Colton’s dad. They discuss how to be comfortable feeling uncomfortable emotions, and how that affects their relationship (23:30). Jaimee expounds on how she interacts with Colton when the anniversary of his father’s death or his father’s birthday comes up (27:42), with a focus on the importance of respecting what he needs exactly, and letting him feel what he needs to.
