I created this graphic for my Facebook Page this week (thanks for all who shared it!):
Sometimes we think marriage is all about us feeling happy, and we let our feelings dictate our commitment to the marriage.
A few other posts that help with this:
Elizabeth from Warrior Wives (a frequent Wifey Wednesday contributor and commenter!) wrote a great article called My Heart is Telling Me To Do It. Excellent!
Don’t Follow Your Heart. A column I wrote a while back on why do we think our feelings should guide us, anyway?
How Does a Marriage Change? How do we get over our problems and actually see change?
Made For Each Other–My column about how my husband and I BECAME made for each other the longer we had been married.
Hope for Those in Hurting Marriages. If you need some encouragement today.
My Husband Can’t Make Me Happy. Let’s take responsibility!
And there was a heart-wrenching thread on Facebook last night you may want to check out (and contribute to). I posted a Reader Question: We’ve been trying to get pregnant (to no avail), and now sex is stressful. What do we do? Interesting responses. Add your own!
Help spread the word about creating great marriages by pinning this post! Thanks!
Sex is supposed to be stupendous--physically, emotionally, AND spiritually. If it's not, get The Good Girl's Guide to Great Sex--and find out what you've been missing.
