Keep Your Marriage Strong

Proverbs 5:18
May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.

As I reflect on our last blog post, I am still stirred about how important it is to protect your marriage relationship.

If you are emotionally and physically connected to your spouse, taking the time to nurture each other, temptation will not have much power over you.  That's why it's so important to enjoy life together.

In our day and time, let's face it.  Life is hectic.  It takes a lot to stay connected to your spouse.  You must be deliberate in your actions to keep the flame burning. 

In most cases when an affair occurs, if the straying spouse would have put as much energy in the marriage relationship as he did with the new person, his marriage would be strong and satisfying. 

My recommendation--if you are going to flirt, do so with your spouse.  If you want to have lunch with someone, call your spouse to meet you at the restaurant.  Meet your spouse secretly for a few minutes after work to connect together before facing a busy household.  

Keep your business relationships business and your relationship with your spouse, intimate.  You will be glad you did.
