We’ve Been Married Too Long; It’s Just Not Fun Anymore 

 

from Clipart.com

Then do something about it! People expect life and relationships to fall into place without doing any work to make it happen. “Too many things going on so there’s never enough time to take care of everything.” That’s right. Then, one day leads to the next day and the next month and the next few years. All of a sudden you are two people living in the same house who have no interest in each other and very few feelings for one another.

That’s life. Your life is no different than any one else’s. Everyone is over committed.

So what can you do about it?

At least give your marriage, your relationship, and your focus on your spouse some thought. Huh? What’s thinking about your marriage got to do with anything?

Sometimes it’s virtually impossible to take the time needed to be together or to even plan time to be together. At times like these when jobs and kids and family takes 100% of your energy, think about your spouse and remind yourself of the things you used to love doing together. Think about the little things that make you smile. Think about things you’ll do together when you do have time. Think about how much you love your spouse even though you may not “feel” very loving lately. Your thoughts are as powerful as actions.

Don’t dwell on what you don’t have right now. Don’t allow yourself to think of negative irritations about your spouse—and all married couples have irritations with their spouses. Think about ways you can tell your spouse you love him or her. Apologize to your spouse that you don’t have more time.

Love can fade if not kept alive. If yours is fading, think about one thing you have loved about your spouse. Then, think about two things. Then, three, and on and on. It takes energy to keep love alive. Think about it and think about it some more.
