Do you ever wish your husband adored you like he used to?
I recall being a newly wed, and I felt special. I wanted to spend every moment with my husband, and I have to admit I was jealous when he did anything that didn’t include me.
Once we had children things changed, and I got busier. That new baby pushes everything out of the way, including older children. However, I put a lot of effort into staying in touch because God intended marriage to last a lifetime. So many things stand in the way of that, but all of us long for that loving relationship.
My parents were married for almost fifty-six years when my mother passed away. The doctor, and the nursing staff who cared for Mama enjoyed watching their romance even during her last illness.
With my nursing background, I love to watch a program on Netflix called Forensics. I have to admit, I’m very surprised every time someone dies in unusual circumstances, the police suspect the spouse, even when they claim to be close. Police typically ask people outside the family how the couple got along rather than just asking the remaining spouse. According to the stories they tell, the husband or wife often choose murder.
That makes me sad. The fact that people don’t stay married hurts everyone. Divorce rips husband and wife apart, but the kids suffer for so many reasons too. I would love to see that change. I would like to see more marriages like my parents.
