I sent a message to my wife yesterday.
“Thank you for fighting for our marriage with me.”
Maybe it was the emotions I was going through.
Earlier in the week, I was on the phone with a friend whose marriage was fighting against the currents pushing it to the rocks.
He’s not the only one.
Over the past months, similar stories from friends, acquaintances, & fellow Christians.
Something was common.
It was a few years back
I don’t remember what caused it but I felt that my wife was not treating me right.
I waited for the whole family to go to bed before deciding to go for a walk.
It was meant to be a prayer walk where I was going to do a tell-it-all with God.
It was more of a prayer rant.
I went into all I thought I was not getting.
As part of our plan for growth this year, one of the decisions my wife and I made was to go for counseling. Our reason was pretty simple; we wanted to deepen of relationship and marriage experience.
We didn’t go into it because of a major problem. Rather, so we could move to the next level in our marriage
To keep our commitment to the whole process, we went for a paid option and were connected to a wonderful couple with many decades of marriage experience.
As things happen, my wife and I had one of those fights couples have about 2 days before one of our sessions.
