Q&A: A Loveless Marriage

Q: After 25 years of marriage,  I just don’t love my husband anymore. How can I stay in this marriage?

Gary: We have to be where we are but we don’t to stay where we are. Essentially, love is a decision and an attitude that says, “I’m married to you, how can I enrich your life?” Don’t wait on your emotions; choose to love in the power of the Holy Spirit. We have God’s help to love an unlovely spouse. When you love them in the right love language, there’s a good chance they’re going to reciprocate and emotional love can be reborn in the marriage. It won’t happen overnight, but there’s nothing more powerful you can do than to love an unlovely spouse.
