One Sacred Pause

S4.E6: Marriage, Immigration + a Sustainable Life with Jonas Bjørgum

March 26, 2020

On this week’s episode Jessica sits down with her husband Jonas to take a walk down memory lane as they reflect on the 8 years of their relationship, 6 spent married. How they met in a ski gondola in Switzerland, fell in love long distance, went through the fiancé visa process in the US and then immigration to Norway, and battled Jessica’s surprise cancer diagnosis. They talk about what they think the “secret” to a successful partnership is, and the values and belief system that is the foundation of their marriage. They also discuss how they think they will be as parents, how a 5 year age gap (Jessica is older!) doesn’t mean a thing, and how culture shock is a real thing.
