I was watching a popular TV show tonight about a happy family. Each week the show surrounds a couple and their happy marriage. Tonight was a little different, as a matter of fact there was a hugh difference. The couple found themselves at odds with each other on just about every issue. They seemed to be drifting further and further apart. After twenty years of marriage, they decided to separate. They were both in disbelief as to how they got to that point.
Sometimes, as difficult as it may be, taking a break or seperation may be the best option. When you find yourself in the place that they were in, taking a step back may be the best solution. What do you do when the Love is still there but you’ve lost that loving feeling.
First, I would suggest professional marriage counseling. Take your time, it’s not a race. Find that sweet spot that first brought you together. Try to recreate some of the good times that you shared. Most of all be honest with one another about your feelings and what you need. Remember, it’s possible to fall in love many times with your spouse. Above all, remember why you came together all those years ago. When the flame dies down it is possible to reignite it.
