Every weekend I like to post a question someone sends in and let you readers have a go at it. This week’s question comes from a reader, who misses a close relationship with her husband, who works away from home:
My husband works out of town 2 weeks on 2 weeks off. This is very difficult to me, for we have no children (would like them but it is so difficult to even try with him being gone all the time); I am lonely and sometimes feel more like a widow than a wife. This is really hard on our relationship; and since my becoming a Christian 10 years ago, I don’t like the same things we use to do together. I know that has to be hard for him. I have been trying to find something that we both like to do, which is hard now. He doesn’t really care for anything I suggest. I even suggested we play cards like we use to and that was a no-go either. I feel that we hardly talk, and when we do it’s like we have nothing to talk about. He was gone for over 5 weeks then came home for a day and half and will be gone for another 2 weeks. I feel I am at my last wits end; I don’t want a divorce nor do I believe in divorce but, I don’t want to live like this any more. How can I get my husband and best friend back?
What do you think? How can she rekindle their relationship?
