Everyone wants a good, strong, happy marriage. Our marriages often start out well. They are full of enthusiasm, joy, love, compassion, and devotion. But as time goes by, couples often find it difficult to carve out time, space, and energy for their one true love.
It seems so odd and sad, but it is a common story line with a majority of married couples. The things of life get in their way and dampen the romance that once burned bright. A few years prior, nothing could separate this pair of love birds. Now priorities have changed. Distractions are everywhere. Demands must be met. Children must be fed. Bills must be paid. Somehow couples seem to lose the fire and energy that brought them to the altar.
We all need a wake up call when it come to marriage. Everyone! We husbands need a reminder to date our wives and make her a priority. Wives need a reminder to love and cherish husbands.
