Barbara and I feel its dividing tug in our relationship when we have disagreements and misunderstandings.
Our busyness repeatedly invites its presence into our marriage.
May I recommend three important choices you need to make?: Resolve never to go to bed angry with each other.for loneliness, but I want to warn you: You began battling the dreaded foe of isolation as soon as you drove off on your honeymoon.Isolation has reached epidemic proportions in the most intimate of human relationships.After a brief honeymoon, they packed up their belongings and moved to a new city.
On the two-day drive to their new home, they began to notice their differences. Initially, the birth of their first child seemed to bring them back together.As it happened with this young couple, isolation starts when husband and wife slowly drift apart in ways they may not recognize at first.Signs include the following: Couples will present a happy facade, keeping house and playing at marriage while real needs go unmet.Many marriages continue for years in a state of armed truce.Competition replaces cooperation, and ugly reality dashes the dreams of hope as conflict unravels the fabric of love and concern. The choice is yours Every day, each partner makes choices that result in oneness or in isolation.Find a way to resolve your differences and move toward oneness. Call a mentoring couple, your pastor, or a counselor.
