About Real Married Life Author Jo Cross

About the Author Jo Cross

I married my college sweetheart and best friend Ben.  I am so crazy about him!  We love learning about becoming a stronger couple and managing our life together.

We have one child, our daughter Elliot.  You can read our birth story here.  We’re learning married life as a family of three now.

Some of my favorite things:  drinking vanilla lattes, sitting on the patio, painting, watching Seinfeld reruns, and cooking with garlic and goat cheese.

And my favorite thing – married life!  I love married life.  It’s not just the things that are easy to love – like romance or pillow talk.  It’s more than just a wedding and it’s more than sharing the same bed.  It’s our life we build every day that makes marriage so special.

This website is devoted to helping other married couples solve problems and build sound marriages. Join my journey as I and others share honestly about every part of married life.
