Ask the Samurai: Relationship & Marriage Q&A

Samurai Husband HelmetSince starting this blog, I have had a lot of questions on marriage from both men and women.  A lot of these questions are ones that I thought to myself, “This would be good for other people to hear!”  So I am starting an ongoing Samurai Q&A; so if you have any questions or topics that have not gotten covered so far in the blog, this is the post to ask them in!  Simply write a comment in the “Leave a Reply” box below and depending on the nature of the question, either I or my wife will answer.  I am sure someone else is wanting to ask the exact same thing…
