There are about 500 people who read my blog pretty regularly, either on Facebook or Twitter or an email subscription or by going directly to my blog site.
Out of that group, I personally know of a small handful that are experiencing significant problems in their marriages…and a few others that have recurring problems that constantly cause stress and distance in their relationship.
But I’m afraid that may be just the tip of the iceberg. I think my world is full of marriages that need help. I think your world may look the same. And the sad part is the marriages that need the most help are not admitting it. At least not to anyone who is willing to help them.
If your marriage is less than what it could/should be, what are you going to about it today?
If your marriage is in trouble (and you know it), are you going to continue to act like everything is fine in public, but live a secret life at home? Or are you going to finally ask for help?
And most importantly, if you know of friends or family whose marriages are obviously struggling, are you going to sit idly by and watch their marriage slowly disintegrate (because it’s really none of your business)? Or are you going to wade into the deep end of friendship and risk speaking the truth to these people…and offering to walk through the mess of their lives with them?
You know who they are. You know what you need to do.
