HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY
I suspect many husbands are finalizing their Valentine’s Day plans. Statistically around this holiday fine-dining experiences will increase, and the sales of flowers and candy will also increase exponentially.
There is nothing wrong with any of these. However, after forty years of marriage, would you consider another suggestion for this holiday?
What if you took the money that you might spend on the things listed above, and instead invested those resources in an hour marriage tune-up?
My experience is in our culture marriage counseling often gets a bad rap. Throughout the years countless husbands (and wives) have said to anne+i; “we’re doing pretty good right now … I think that going to any sort of marriage counseling will just stir up potential problems—my motto is if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
I believe that type of thinking is unwise. Investing in marriage counseling helps struggling marriage to be strengthened; and marriages that are doing well to increase in intimacy.
Similar to regular medical check-ups; EVERY relationship can benefit getting regular relational/marriage check-ups.
I challenge husbands to consider my suggestion and this weekend INITIATE with your bride the idea of scheduling an hour marriage tune-up.
Agree on a counselor—and YOU schedule the session.
Trust me … the lasting benefits of purposely investing in your marriage will return many more blessings than any fine-dining experience, flowers that will wilt within a week, or chocolates that will disappear quickly.
