Why are we unhappy in marriage? How can we repair our broken relationship? We can find healing through commitment, communication and Christ.
Divorcing or staying stuck in a miserable marriage are not your only options. You can stay together and develop three key marital attitudes that may ultimately help you develop a better marriage.
Emotions — even anger and hurt — have a purpose. These strong feelings need to be appropriately understood, valued and utilized so you can better care for yourself and know your spouse deeply.
Maybe you never learned teamwork. Maybe you came from a broken home. Or the dynamics of your marriage may make it difficult to connect. Whatever the reason, loneliness in marriage can be overcome.
Guys, we can resolve disagreements a lot more quickly, and with better results, if we see our wives not as opponents to be outplayed, but as teammates. Let’s be men who can disagree, discuss — and then move on.
Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year, but the busyness of the season and financial pressures can lead to stress, which breeds conflict and leads to a disconnect in marriage.
Taking responsibility for a better marriage begins by recognizing your need for help and then creating emotional safety in your relationship.
When we feel threatened, we build emotional walls that don’t allow our spouse into the deepest parts of our hearts and minds. The emotional distance can cause marital problems.
When you and your spouse disagree, or get hurt, or become frustrated, or reach an impasse, the easiest thing to do is what you have always done!
Relating to each other is not a technique we’re born with. It’s like a muscle that needs to be developed over time.
