Marriage can be a funny thing. It’s never really what people expect it to be. For most it’s something less.
Those unmet expectations….The disappointment can be devastating.
The most common complaint I hear is:“I love them but I’m no longer in love with them. “
That’s a surprisingly easy problem to solve.
In my experience if you were in-love with your partner earlier in your marriage, you can feel in love with them again.
All you have to do is restore the Feeling of connection between you. That’ also the only thing that will ever work.
Being in love is a feeling, isn’t it.
It’s not something that should happen, or ought to be there all the time. It either is, or it isn’t there all by itself.
- You can’t talk your way back in love with someone.
- You can’t think your way there.
- And the feeling of being in love doesn’t naturally fade over time.
The only reason so many couples experience that is they stop doing the things that created their deep connection initially.
Any marriage that’s on auto-pilot will lose the feelings of being in-love.
If you want proof of how deeply fulfilling your marriage is: Tell me how much joy you experience daily with your partner.
That’s the evidence that says it all. It’s also a measure of how in-love you feel.
You can convince yourself of lots of things. But you cannot convince yourself of feeling joy with someone or being in-love, when it’s not true.
Marriage can be the most extraordinary thing, filled with precious moments, magic, and treasured memories.
- Your shared love never has to fade.
But not everyone wants an extraordinary marriage. If you do, talk with me. It’s the most important work I do.
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot.
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not. -Dr. Seuss
