Dave Lopez is a former U.S. Navy SEAL who currently conducts global missions with Operation Underground Railroad, a nonprofit organization comprised of retired special ops guys that rescue children from sexual slavery.

Why am I having this man on a marriage podcast? Because he exemplifies true masculinity - NOT because of his big muscles, charming personality or dashing good looks, and NOT because he’s a total badass Navy SEAL, capable of handling the world’s most dangerous situations and people; it’s because he is a complete gentleman, a man of integrity, a man pure of heart, and a man that knows TRUE masculinity, what it means, and how to live it.

In this episode, Dave and I talk about men, masculinity, and marriage.
