In this episode of our relationship podcast Something Like Marriage, we answer a listener’s question about how to handle embarrassment with a spouse or partner.
Everyone handle’s embarrassment differently. Sometimes we repress our embarrassment, get angry, or can laugh about what happened for years to come. The goal is to be able to talk about all emotions with your lover, including embarrassment.
