Did you get married to work a job? To do laundry? To pay bills?
Of course not. Yet, most of us wind up with marriages in exactly that kind of “ho-hum” condition. Sooner or later, the euphoria of the wedding ceremony fades away and life settles into a daily grind of often-mundane activity. Careers are chased, children are born, and ever-larger homes are purchased. Or newer and newer cars sit outside of garages filled to the roof with stuff we’ll never use.
Is it any wonder romance fades?
What used to be hours on the phone together and date nights whenever possible becomes two people who only talk when they’re discussing something practical, like finances or the kids’ schedules. Eventually, the emotional connection points that used to draw you together disappear entirely.
The question is, what can you do if your once intimate relationship feels more like a business arrangement?
Dr. Kevin Leman always has great answers for questions like that. He shares a few of them with us on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Discovering the Secrets to a Lifelong Romance.” Dr. Leman’s advice has a unique way of cutting through confusion to the core issues every married couple faces. He can help you pep up your marriage and rekindle the romance your relationship once had.
Dr. Leman says many husbands and wives live “married-single lifestyles.” They’ve allowed the busyness of life to distract them from what’s truly important: connecting on an emotional level and developing a genuinely intimate relationship.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Let Dr. Kevin Leman’s humor, wit, and wisdom open up the secrets to a lifelong marriage. Check out our conversation on your local radio station, online, on Apple Podcasts, via Google Podcasts, or on our free phone app.
