Jeanine and Mark Earnhart: 'Today Show' Features Reconciled Couple

Tuesday's "Today Show" featured a couple who split to save their marriage.

Jeanine and Mark Earnhart separated after 35 years or marriage, only to reconcile shortly thereafter. Their time apart taught them how to better communicate, and they gradually began dating again.

Now, after 42 years of marriage and one almost-divorce, the Earnharts have self published a book titled, "Marriage Works," about their experience.

"It was a great feeling," Jeanine Earnhart said of reconciling. "It was like coming home again."
