The Fastest Way to End Your Marriage (1) By Dr Michael Brooks
I was watching a husband and wife argue over their crying son in a crowded restaurant. He wanted her to take him out and deal with the problem while he watched his football team on the TV. They went back and forth when she finally said “fine; we’ll talk about this when we get home!” He seemed so out of touch with the anger his wife was showing him. She walked out and never came back in; he seemed to be more interested in his football game than his family. I’d say this is more common with younger families today then it was a generation ago. Disconnect with your spouse, and you’ll surely find maritial unhappiness. I know many of you are busy with your jobs, hobbies, electronics, but your family should take a priority and be number one and not at the bottom of your list. Marriage is hard work; we all know that.
All this man had to do is help his wife with his child, see if he needed to be changed or helped with feeding, nothing major and have a family time out enjoying being together as a family while watching his game.
So in the big picture, what do you think are some of the problems that will end a marriage? Here’s my list:
- Lack of or no communication
- Not paying attention to your spouse
- Lack of spontaneity
- Putting others ahead of your spouse
- Lack of emotional intimacy
- No date nights
- Endless arguments
- Lack of commitment
- Lack of trust
- No vision for the future
These are just a few of many. I’m sure you could add your own items to this list. If you want a better marriage, there must be two people coming together and figuring out how to make the marriage better! Ending a marriage seems to be the way to go these days. People just run to a lawyer and say they want out. Pretty simple, but the consequences are severe and emotionally damaging. Next week we will be covering the areas that cause divorces in an unhealthy relationship.
Do you feel frustrated about your failing marriage or relationship and need help in getting back on track? Do you need help in saving your marriage and family from divorce? Do you have a spouse who isn’t communicating with you, and you want to communicate at a deeper level? Do you want help in learning how to bring excitement in your marriage?
