Now that you have realized that you can make time to reinvest into your marriage, just how long are you willing to manage this investment? We will commit to putting 6% of our paycheck away for the next thirty years, but feel like making a change in our love life for too long is relinquishing all power. If you can see the benefit in investing in your future with regard to a 401K or stock options, then you can easily see the benefit in investing into your marriage long term. Different currencies, but same outcomes. Future Stability.
As you begin to recommit yourself, your time, and your energy towards your love, take some time to review your commitment and ask yourself: Has your marriage been on auto pilot that you don’t have a clue where you’re headed? If so, take some time to answer these questions (no close ended answers)
Where would you like to see your marriage go this year?
Are you committed to making positive changes?
Do you expect your marriage to get better by doing the same things you are doing now?
How committed are you to your marriage?
Are you truly in this for the long haul (10 years, 20 years, 30 years)?
How committed is your spouse to your marriage?
Now all of these wont be easily answered and they shouldn’t be. Change is not easy, but its so necessary in order for us to be better forms of who we once were. In the end, we all know that we cannot expect different results doing the same thing.
