People change. That’s just a fact of life. If you’ve been married for any long number of years, then you’re probably not the same person you were when you got married, and neither is your spouse. Each of you has probably shaped the other person, and you’ve grown together in some ways and, in others, probably apart.
That’s okay! That’s perfectly normal. If you haven’t shifted in your personality, opinions, and beliefs as you’ve grown older, then you probably haven’t been engaging with life all that much and have instead tried to hold on to your lost youth. That isn’t healthy; growth, on the other hand, is good.
The problem arises when you feel as though you and your spouse have grown in entirely different directions. What do you do then? How can you stay in an eternal partnership when it feels like you aren’t even walking on the same road right now? When you’ve lost some of that intimacy you once shared?
We’ve heard all these questions, and fortunately, we have a few answers that might help you out. There is hope for restoration of your relationship, for the intimacy you feel is lost, and for the togetherness that you crave. We invite you to investigate these resources and see what you find.
