Moms, Keep the Home Fires Burning in Your Marriage
- Thursday, September 22, 2005
“If either you or your spouse constantly hum the Rolling Stones’ tune, I Can’t Get No Satisfaction, you might be in trouble. If you ignore each other’s needs, one or both of you will be more tempted to seek affection/sex elsewhere. Not having needs met is no excuse, of course, for bad behavior, and going after sex outside of your marriage is sin; the Bible says — to both of you — be satisfied with the wife/husband of your youth. That verse indicates that we should be trying to remain satisfied with our mates, and be satisfying each other’s needs. If your marriage is well-watered, the grass on the other side of the fence will not look greener than your own. “
With wise counsel from authors like Nancy out there, I recommend you buy a good marriage book and make time to read it.
Grow Old Together
Remember, keep God first, what’s-his-name second, and the kids third. God’s plan is for children to leave home and cleave to someone else. Then you’ll have plenty of time to spend with your husband. You may be too old to care, but at least you’ll like each other as you drink warm milk and play Scrabble. And even if you're kids don't seem to care now, they'll be grateful you worked on keeping your marriage in tact later.
