Both Steven (left) and Brad (right) dearly missed their own wives during the Wife Swap experiment. But each learned powerful lessons.

Steven apologized to Lynn for his behavior while she was living with his family. He wrote in a letter, "I want to sincerely apologize for anything I may have done or said to make you feel bad. I respect you as a person and for what you do for your family. Therefore, I would like to make this offer of peace to give you a full afternoon to spend with your family. I will be responsible for one day of your wood-chopping chores with a smile on my face." The pledge was even notarized.

Both Steven and Jodi also say they are now making much more of an effort to spend time with their children. Brad has a newfound respect for his wife, Lynn.

"I would like to think I helped out around the house and pulled my weight," Brad says. "But, when I had to do everything [Lynn] does and see the extent of it, I really saw how little I do help out."
