Martin Luther said, “There is no more lovely, friendly or charming relationship, communion or company, than a good marriage.” That being said, how well do you know your wife? Consider the following questions:
- Do you know what she is worried about today?
- Do you know her greatest concern for herself? For you? For your children?
- Do you know what sin she struggles with the most?
- Do you know what unmet aspirations she harbors?
- When is the last time you asked, “how are you doing?
- When is the last time you asked her, “How are we doing?”
How would you assess your “presence” in your marriage?
- When is the last time you had quality time with your wife?
- How about quantity time?
No relationship is static; you are either committed to growing closer, or you are drifting apart. Which is true of your marriage? What are you going to do about it?
