My father Don Pedro Rivera engraved in my heart that “family is the only thing you have at the end of the day”, and I agree with him. I firmly believe that I have nothing without my family. Once married to Abel, I couldn’t leave my strong family ties behind. Should I have to? Couldn’t Abel be an extension of my Rivera family? I couldn’t find the balance between extended family and my nuclear family because I didn’t automatically make the switch on my wedding day. In this episode, Abel and I open up about our family issues, and how we work every day on finding that happy balance and how we set priorities when it comes to our extended family.
What do you do when your spouse cheats on you? Do you forgive and move on? Do you stay for the kids? Abel and I get these questions all the time when we are speaking about marriage. In this podcast Abel and I discuss what we do hypothetically and the struggles that we’ have had with trust and betrayal in our own marriage. At the end of this episode Abel even managed to convince me to have a change of heart on this topic. We hope it opens your heart and mind and helps you confront and deal with the infidelity in your marriage.

In honor of Mother’s Day, Abel and I sat down and had a candid conversation with my mother Rosa Amelia Rivera Saavedra. My mother spoke of her life with my father and her decision to divorce him after 42 years of marriage. Although this episode was one of the most emotional ones yet by far it has been one of my favorites because we got to sit and talk to a woman that I admire and respect tremendously. My mother opens her heart and explains how a woman knows when it’s time to ask for a divorce. When enough is enough.
En honor al Día de las Madres, Abel y yo nos sentamos en una candida plática con mi madre, Rosa Amelia Rivera Saavedra. Hablando de su vida con mi padre y su decisión de divorciarse después de un matrimonio de 42 años.

Hoy ella explica como una mujer sabe cuando es hora de pedir el divorcio.
Abel and I believe all relationships go through tough moments and that you can’t quit as soon as it gets hard. In this episode we speak to a very candid friend “Maria” who realized that in her third try at marriage her husband was not the issue. She came to the realization that she was the one that was quitting on the marriage in each attempt. She liked getting married but didn’t like dealing with the issues that came with it and quickly would give up on it and quit. Join us as we hear Maria’s story and how she decided to turn things around with her marriage, deciding to stay and deal with her personal issues by getting help.
Is living in purity in today’s age possible? Most would think it’s not possible. Abel and I disagree. We believe in purity 100% before and during marriage. Today we debate with our guests, hosts of their own podcast “The BS Life”, Vic and Eddie, two men with opposing views regarding purity and virginity. Eddie is a proud virgin and Vic thinks he’s wasting his life away by saving himself for marriage.
It seems that the roles for men and women have flipped for many families since the MAN-cession of 2008. For Abel and Rosie the roles flipped when Rosie became the main bread winner when Abel was laid off and stayed home with their new born. Who should do what in the household? We discuss the roles of men and women in relationships with Mexican singer songwriter Karina Moreno who is open about her relationship experience after facing struggles in her marriage. She explains her thoughts on men being the leader and women being the multiplier.
