Before You Quit Read This..
It was a warm fall afternoon and my wife had walked into our home for lunch.

She wasn’t her normal self and I could tell that something was on her mind.

We walked around each other as we prepared lunch. As we sat down at our kitchen table she blurted out,

“I’m frustrated with you, our marriage, and us. I’ve been looking through the yellow pages for a divorce lawyer.”

I was taken aback. I had no idea that there was anything wrong with us. As I caught my breath and tears filled my eyes I wondered if I could save my marriage.

In your marriage there may have been a moment in time, or a specific reason that has caused your spouse to want a divorce.

It could have been:

  • An emotional or physical affair

  • Continued fighting and conflict

  • Being separated due to work, ailing parents, or personal choice

  • Mental or behavioral issues

  • Pornography, alcohol, or drug abuse

You now find yourselves creeping to the edge of divorce when there is little to no:

  • Emotional intimacy

  • Spiritual connectedness

  • And physical/sexual intimacy in your marriage any longer.

If your marriage is at this point you may be asking yourself, “what can I do?”

You have two choices at this moment when your spouse wants a divorce. You can choose to be angry, or you can take responsibility for your actions and feelings.

You can decide how you will react to the situation. You may not be able to control the situation or your spouse, but you do have control over your words and actions.

This is your opportunity to look at the person you see in the mirror and make a change.

Do you want to foster change in your marriage?
