“Only after I got married was I like, ‘Mollie, I’m sorry, but we have to get non-traditional here. To her credit, instead of saying, I’m out,’ she was like, ‘Let’s figure this out,” he shared with the magazine.
The couple keeps the lines of communication open to ensure both are comfortable in all swinging situations. Mollie and Thomas also have stringent rules in their non-traditional marriage.
Their relationship inspired Thomas to convince Mollie they should share their story. Although his wife has agreed to help him write the comedy, Mollie does not want to join her husband as the face of the show.
“I would be honored to be the face of something. I don’t give a f&%k, but my wife is more private, so I have to juggle that” he explained.
