The Struggle Is Real

About This Episode

It’s easy to get swept away by the demands of your children. They can invade your bed, take over your free time, and cut into your hobbies. As you meet their needs, it’s easy to ignore the needs of your spouse. Many spouses grow apart during the early parenting years. As they do so, they are more susceptible to getting their emotional needs met by something or someone else. Whether it’s an affair or an addiction – these escapes offer an opportunity for each person in the relationship to obtain a form of pseudo-love.  Intentionally investing in your marriage week by week, month-by month, is essential to keep your relationship thriving.
