Love your spouse today.......

Yesterday I talked to 2 different couples that are going through divorce. All that kept going through my mind was:
  • Why?
  • What are you thinking?
  • Stop!!!!!!!!

Physically, I felt ill, and full of a rage almost. I wanted to slap some sense into them. Well............I refrained, but decided to blog some sense into anyone that would listen.

Love your spouse today! You and your spouse have to become a team. You have to lock arms and go through life together because, life is will behave badly.........things will hurt.........bad things will happen to will be tempted.

So anyone reading your spouse today:

  • Pray for your spouse
  • Ask for God's help to love your spouse
  • Tell your spouse all the things you first fell in love with about him/her
  • Love your spouse emotionally today
  • Love your spouse physically today
  • Love your spouse sexually today

LOVE YOUR SPOUSE TODAY and cling together for the ride that is your life.

Excellent advice! I'm sorry to hear about your friends.

I definitely recommend the book, The Power of a Praying Wife. I was given a copy when I ordered my wedding cake but never read it until my marriage was strained. I definitely saw a difference in my marriage after I started reading it. It helped understand the importance of praying for my hubby and it help teach me how.

But my biggest piece of advice, is for couples to spend time together and make each other a priority. We all put other things (kids, chores, work) before our spouses and that can hurt a marriage. I know I had to change my focus from Mommy to Wife. My son has 2 parents to care for him, but my husband only has 1 wife--so I need to take that role seriously.

I just recently had to re-adjust my schedule and priorities in order to make everyone feel loved in my house. No working at home after work. No computer until after dinner. No outside commitments (even church stuff) unless it's agreed upon by hubby and I.

Another thing we do (at least once a week) is have a family fun day where we do something as a family (no outside distractions, i.e. computers, blackberry, books, etc). We play, we create, we cook, but more importantly, we talk.

My marriage hasn't always been easy but I know God gives us marriage counseling when we need it.
