Common Marriage Problems, Loss of Intimacy
It is amazing the number of couples that allow the intimate side of their relationship slide.
Loss of intimacy is one of those common marriage problems that eat away at the very foundation of a
marriage turning what was once a loving and fulfilling relationship into nothing more than a shell.
The excuses are all too
common, just too busy at work, the children are too demanding, we don’t have time or it’s just temporary to name but a few. With such easy
excuses slipping off the tongue it’s just an open door for a myriad of marriage problems to take
Like most common marriage problems if you are prepared to make an effort loss of intimacy in a marriage is relatively easy to
resolve but the further apart you allow yourselves to grow the harder it is to get that marriage back on track.
It’s so easy just to say we don’t have the same feelings anymore and assume that the time has come to draw the line but what about
if you just take a step back and attack loss of intimacy in the same way you should handle any common marriage problem. Look at marriage issues as something to be resolved, a minor setback in life and not the end
of the journey.
We all face problems at work, with the children and with the family but work problems we handle, children issues we sort out and
look how far we have to be pushed before we even consider disowning our family. Why is it then so common for marriages to split up over a
few solvable problems?
If we are prepared to make an
effort with every other aspect of our lives why do so many couples just fall at the first hurdle? You can’t say that living with someone is
something we aren’t generally used to, after all we have to make allowances for others and cope with family differences as we grow up. What
makes couple so what makes couples so blinkered, unbending and uncaring?
