How did we get here? It’s a question many couples ask themselves when they wake up and realize the person (the spouse) that lives in their house feels like a stranger. You’re not connected anymore and you’ve grown apart. Here’s how to recognize if you’re drifting in your marriage and how to fix it.
Drifting… it doesn’t just apply to when you’re driving but in marriage with so many parallels too.
Before having kids, career advances and all the chaos life brings, you were in that honeymoon stage totally blinded by love. Then one day, you wake up and realize you don’t even really know the person next to you laying in the bed.
Your marriage can drift.
The reality is, you often don’t realize you’re marriage is drifting until something big happens. We didn’t realize our marriage was drifting too. We’ve had seasons of drifting. Long and short but drifting nonetheless.
Marriages drifting are often masked by this idea that we are “just busy”.
For us, the changes having children brought us were the fastest way for our marriage to drift. From one to two kids and then through adoption… it’s easy to find yourself arguing with your spouse and not really understanding what you’re arguing about. Drifting.
Tune in to this episode and hear how we’ve realized we’ve drifted throughout our marriage and what we’ve done to get back to each other.
