Texas' own Chip and Joanna Gaines have that wildly successful show on HGTV called Fixer Upper, and their empire is continuing to grow with a new project this fall.

We've seen Tarek and Christina (Flip or Flop) and other happy couples work on home improvements together, and they just might be helping us stumble upon the secret to marriage success.

Chip and Joanna Gaines are launching a new lifestyle magazine this fall, starting in October.  People Magazine says it will be available everywhere, including the Magnolia Market in Waco of course.  It will focus on food and family, and fashion, and I'm sure they'll weave home improvements in there too.

Working on home improvement projects together might be just the thing we need to get through rough patches in relationships, create new things bigger and outside of ourselves, and give ourselves little reminders of what cool tile backsplashes we can crank out with our better half when we stop fighting in the kitchen and get to work.

Think of all the things we can get crossed off the honey-do-list, ladies. Will there be fights?  Yes!  But there may also be new floors and paint jobs, and signs that your home and marriage can both be better than they were before.  If not, there's always the rescue show!
