For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’ Ephesians 5;30-31 NKJV
if I should tell my wife about how her friend came to throw herself on me. Will my wife believe me? She sees her friend like a saint.Its been 3 years. This friend of hers is living like a single mother.
Always asking me to be patient and believe in his dreams of making it one day and really compensate me for being so patient with him. Marriage talks came up. One day,I got a call from the police. Femi was arrested for duping someone.
He says it is not my business as long as he provides for the home. The issue is that sometimes when I tell him we need to buy something for the house,he will say I should tell him ahead like 3 weeks before. When I tell him 3 weeks before,3 weeks later,he will say I didnt tell him hence he will not give me the money.
Don’t all of us do this, in our own way? We fall in love with our partner’s spontaneity, or on the other end, their organization, and then resent them when they live out what they are. We appreciate their laughter when we’re dating, then find them too shallow when we’re married. We appreciate their thoughtfulness and deliberate manner as boyfriend or girlfriend, and then find them too introspective and moody as spouses (“Make a decision already!”)
This shows me more and more how God uses marriage to demonstrate His relationship with us. My husband and I are joined together, for better or worse. We couldn’t survive the bumps of marriage without being in constant prayer through the good and the bad times. Everything we do is linked to Him. Decisions. Struggles. Bad moods. We take it all to Him. I can’t see any other reason our marriage has survived other than Him.
Don't lie and say you love the things your spouse loves if you don't. It's normal for individuals in new relationships to give in to doing activities they don't enjoy just to be with their partner, but that willingness wears off after you've been together for a while. If you absolutely hate camping but your partner lives for it, that's something you need to be honest about.
The next two days,she sent me a text to see her before leaving. I waited to see her . By 6.30,she was still busy but I didn't mind. By a few minutes to 7,she called me into her office. I got there,she started saying sorry to have kept me. She came and sat beside me and offered me wine from a bottle that she just opened. I told her thank you that I don't want to drink but she said she insisted. She poured a drink for herself and me . I drank with her. I asked her what she wanted to see me for. She just started saying how she likes me. She sees herself in me when she was younger. She just went on and on. At a point,I was wondering what this was all about. We finished the bottle of wine and she went to lock her office door. She then proceeded to touching my hands. At first,it didnt click that there was anything unusual with that. She touched me,began to caress me and before I knew it,she kissed me.

Once this began happening they started connecting on a new level. They started finding new things about each other they found exciting: Tom discovered that Maggie like Indian food which he never knew before and he loved it too, Maggie found out that Tom liked a different kind of music than he used to like when they were dating. They also found new annoyances they didn’t like. She didn’t like the way he organized his calendar and he didn’t like the way she always let unknown phone numbers go to her voicemail first. These things excited each other and it was almost as if they were getting to know a new person. When they made love it was like making love to someone new. After connecting in this new way and realizing they really were in love each other (even though this person wasn’t the person they originally fell in love with), they stopped coming into therapy and thanked me for the help.
You don’t have to have issues to benefit from therapy, De Ridder stated. In fact, going to therapy can help prevent seemingly minor issues from growing into deal breakers.
Preventing any major relationship problems from brewing can help both partners avoid infidelity. Some major issues that could contribute to infidelity, if left untouched, include resentment, loneliness, and the lack of intimacy and support.
