PLEASE READ THIS DESCRIPTION
This video is a bit different than what we normally post, but it's necessary. As difficult as it is to share, we hope that explaining the events of February 2014 and its aftermath might help some people out there and prevent similar incidents in the future.

One in two relationships experience behavior that can be classified as abusive. This is a widespread problem that can only be addressed if we talk about it. Situations like ours can happen to anyone, regardless of who they are, where they live, their race, ethnicity, color, creed, gender, sexual identity, or status. Many relationships can experience abusive or problematic behavior without anyone realizing it. And there's an extremely high likelihood that someone you know is dealing with this issue, even if you're not aware of it.

If you or anyone you know might be in an unhealthy, unsafe, or abusive situation, please be sure to utilize the following resources:

The National Domestic Violence Hotline

The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence

Finally, you may notice that comments have been disabled for this video. We want to give people a chance to process the information and reflect for a day. Sometimes our initial, knee-jerk reactions can be a bit extreme, which is why we want the initial shock to wear off for a bit before we attempt to continue a compassionate, respectful, meaningful conversation of how to best combat this rampant problem.

Thank you all so much for your love and support thus far. As we said before, we will refuse to let this one dark spot define us, our relationship, or this channel. We hope you continue on this journey with us, because there are very bright days ahead.
