Why did you get married?
To work a job?
To do laundry?
To pay bills?
Of course not. Yet, many couples wind up with marriages in exactly that kind of “ho-hum” condition.
After the euphoria of the wedding ceremony fades, life settles into a daily routine of often-mundane activity. Careers are chased, children are born, and ever-larger homes are purchased requiring greater amounts of time and money to maintain. Before long, a relationship once nourished by hours on the phone together becomes two people who only talk when they’re discussing something practical, like finances or the kids’ schedules.
Popular author and speaker, Dr. Kevin Leman, has counseled many couples whose marriages have turned into business arrangements. They live like “married-singles,” he says. They allow the busyness of life to distract them from connecting on an emotional level and developing a genuinely intimate relationship.
Dr. Leman is with us on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Discovering the Secrets to a Lifelong Romance” to help couples revive their intimacy. His advice has a unique way of cutting through the confusion and bringing clarity to the issues married couples face. He’ll help you re-form relational connection points and rekindle the romance your relationship once had.
I know you’ll enjoy Dr. Leman’s humor, wit, and wisdom about creating a lifelong romance. Hear our full conversation on your local radio station, online, on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, via Google Podcasts, or take us with you on our free phone app.
