Too often in marriage the couple may slip into what we refer to as the “Gotcha Syndrome.” After a period of time, a certain level of comfort sets in and the two start to do things they make it appear they have changed.
But they did not change. Instead the level of comfort creates a complacency in the marriage. Examples we hear most are things like a husband who may stop doing dishes, or forget birthdays. A wife who may not cook favorite meals on special occasions or be as physical.
This happens because the level of comfort leads to the feeling of I “gotcha” and can ease off a bit.
It is no secret that a major key to a happy marriage is keeping the flames alive, and not just in the bedroom. Husbands, make dinner reservations at a nice place and surprise her and take a day off work and go to a movie and lunch with your wife. Wives, slip a note in his lunch and maybe you can take a day off to take him to lunch and a movie (or take him lunch).
It is continuing to do the things which won over the person you love which we keep that love alive.
Take a moment today and tell that special someone how much you love them.
You’ll be glad you did.
