Jana Kramer has never shied away from telling the truth, especially when it comes to her relationship with husband Mike Caussin. The couple not only discusses it in their Whine Down podcast, they also frequently share on social media. Whether it’s for the courage that comes with vulnerability or the accountability that comes with truth, it seems likely that other couples are benefitting from their openness.

On Instagram, Jana posted a beautiful picture of her and Michael sharing a romantic smooch. She then gets very real about the disconnect that can often happen with couples who both live and work together while raising a family.

Jana writes, “Truthfully I was about to write a caption about being crazy in love, which I am but here’s also the truth….the last month we have been more disconnected that connected. We have argued more, been less empathetic, and truthfully not the greatest of friends that we could be to each other. Maybe it has been the stresses of moving, or parenting or triggers from a different time, or maybe it’s just the season we are in. We had a lunch date the other day to try to kick the dust off and get to the root of why and quite simply the why is harder to find than I thought. Simply put marriage can be hard no matter what you’re going through but there is truly no one else I would want to go through the mud with. And here’s the greatest part of it all that leads me back to the sappy caption I wanted to write….I love him more today because he is fighting the fight along side with me and that makes me love him/us and our marriage even more.”

It is then that Jana offers a very simple and intentional note of advice: “Little reminder: don’t be discouraged if you and your partner are having a rough time…we all go through it…lean in with empathy.. Xoxo”

We could all use a little bit of that.
