    In this episode around 22:48, Julie states right after situations of abuse, that all marriages there can be seasons where it's unsafe. When you said this, I understood it to say that all marriages will encounter abuse. Is that what you meant? The discussion started with emotional and physical abuse and then went on to discuss the normalcy and how to be OK with "unsafe". I have concerns that listeners will hear this as normalizing and accepting their domestic violence situation. Is there a way to clarify this?
