I remember so clearly the day Tim proposed to me. The air around us was full of love, excitement, and anticipation. We couldn’t wait to begin our new journey. Nothing would stop us from a perfect and joyful life together. Do you remember feeling that way?
Then the day came when we no longer felt joy in our marriage. We were busy; there were different perspectives, opinions – and, ultimately, turmoil. We drifted apart.
So, what happened? Where did we get off-track? For us, it was our busyness with our children, careers, our own desires, and more. Plain and simple, it was Life!
Life can overwhelm us, can’t it? We are constantly pulled in all directions: children’s activities, work, projects, keeping up with the home, family – the list goes on and on. All of these things leave us feeling we are missing something – and wondering just where that bright-eyed couple and excitement for life together has gone.
- Have you felt that way?
- Are you missing that loving feeling in your marriage?
- Has life left you wondering where the love went?
- Do you question why, if marriage is being a team, do you feel so lonely?
- Do you feel there’s more work than fun in your relationship?
