Durable Young Love

An older couple are driving down the highway when another car passed them.

The woman notices the occupants of the other car are young and obviously in love. The girl is sitting very close to her boyfriend as they cruise down the highway.

This causes the woman to think back to when she and her husband were young and in love, and wondering where the show of affection had disappeared to over the years.

Finally she says to her husband, “Remember when we used to be like that young couple? Where did the love go, honey?” He quietly replied, “I haven’t moved….”

The moral of this story is that there is a phase in marriage when a couple grows dull to the depth and special quality of their relationship. The durability and sustainability of it may even come into question. It is worth remembering that all that ever made your marriage work still exists. You must recognize the best qualities again. They are in you. They ARE you.

Take a walk in the park, go bike riding through the neighborhood, kick your shoes off and walk along the beach or lakefront, go to a museum together, see a play together, watch the river flow while beneath a shady tree together…light some candles, play soft music and cook a meal together. All that ever made your marriage work still exists. You must recognize the best qualities again. They are in you. They ARE you.

In other words, we may go from sizzle to fizzle with no intervention by either spouse. How do you know when you’re married sex has lost its…humph? Ask yourself the following questions: Read more of this post
