How do we keep our marriage alive now that the children have arrived? Children are a blessing from God, but children can also bring on marital neglect. When a couple neglects their own love relationship, they do so to the detriment of the children. Perhaps it is time for you to pause long enough to assess the quality of your marriage. If you see yourselves drifting apart, it’s time to make a course correction. Look each other in the eyes and say, “our marriage is important not only for us, but for our children. Therefore, together, with God’s help, we will find a way to rediscover each other.” If marriage is important, then we must make time to cultivate our relationship. It is time well invested.
