Dylan Neal's words on Marriage

In an interview given to in 2015, Neal said: “We’ve been married 18, and together 23. I think you just do what you can do. Everyone approaches it differently I’m sure. Our life is particularly busy right now, and the fact that most of my projects if not all of them shoot in Vancouver or that area and my family is in Los Angeles.

Dylan added:

It means that it’s a lot of travel, a lot of back and forth when I’m doing Cedar Cove. For four or five months of the year, I travel home every weekend, sometimes a 36-hour trip home to remind the kids what dad looks like. Sometimes with the schedule, I’m allowed to get four or even five days. It just depends on the schedule.

According to Neal, he is lucky that he got Southwell as his wife. She is a very understanding and supportive woman. This is one of the main reasons behind the strength that their relationship has.

Neal’s wife Southwell is also a busy woman. This couple is often seen working together. They wrote their first script together for The Gourmet Detective movie franchise for the Hallmark channel. Likewise, they write together often and sell projects.

Neal is mostly out of his house because of his profession, and thus, he does not get to stay with his children much.

He added:

My wife is solo parenting while I’m away, of course, so we have to hire a full-time nanny. It’s a juggling act, but it’s really no different from a working parent kind of family. You just figure out how it works. I think that the added struggle we have is that I happen to be away so much of the year.

So I’m like a salesman, it’s no different than people who have to be on the road all the time because of work. We just do the best we can, and you figure it out on the way.

Dylan Neal' Advice for Successful Marriage

According to Dylan Neal, the reason behind a successful marriage is that one has to marry their best friend.

Marriage is definitely not an easy thing. Every couple has good and bad days, but the most important thing is to work out the bad days.

Neal said:

You take a leap of faith together and know that marriage is probably really the hardest thing to do in life. I really believe that. It is an evolving, ongoing relationship that you’re embarking on with someone else. You’re going to have a lot of ups and downs, and as long as you realize you’re going to have to fight your way through it to come out on the other side, then you’re gonna be okay,
