For Pat Smith, it's time for a serious check in on her marriage with husband and star NFL running back, Emmitt Smith. For 15 years, Pat has taken on the role of homemaker so that Emmitt could focus on his demanding football career, but now she's ready for her needs to be acknowledged and supported.

"We have to figure out ways to rekindle and keep that fire and that spark going," says Emmitt about getting beyond the inevitable bumps in the road when it comes to nurturing a loving, long-term commitment.
