WHEN YOUR SPOUSE’S LACK OF AFFECTION IS NOT ABOUT YOU…

Every good, long-lasting marriage has seasons of newlywed-like affection and quiet, less intimate distancing from one another.

This is a word of encouragement for those less intimate seasons, because it’s easy for a husband or wife to think their spouse’s ‘coldness’ is about them…

When your spouse is less affectionate, it’s not always about you.

They aren’t always cheating…

They aren’t necessarily ‘not into you’…

They’re not always putting work or friends before you…

Sometimes they’re not into themselves.

Sometimes they don’t feel sexy or as attractive.

Sometimes they’re struggling with their own…

Self-esteem…

Broken dreams…

Failed expectations of themselves…

Stress on the or career…

Spiritual battles…

Mental health.

Sometimes your spouse has internal conflicts that have nothing to do with their love or lack of love for you.

This is why communication is so important.

They have to be honest.

You have to listen.

Even if you can’t understand how they feel as they do, don’t make their stress worse in your reaction.

This is simply a reality of marriage and a part of ‘better or worse, in sickness and in health.

This is when real l❤️ve is proven.

Ephesians 4:2 (NKJV)

2 with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love,

BE BLESSTIFIED!
