Fellas, let’s face it. Marriage has a huge potential to be boring. It doesn’t matter how much you love your wife. You probably love her to the moon and back; but you two could still be bored with the marriage. Do you know what makes marriage so dull?
When there’s nothing to look forward to.
Think about it. When you have absolutely nothing to look forward to in your marriage, how in the world can you find fun, excitement or real happiness? You can’t.
Last night after my wife and I were home from work, we had a long conversation. We talked about a different array of things. The highlight of the conversation was us joking about stuff that happened to us that day. We laughed and just enjoyed each others company.
Towards the end of the conversation, she told me, “I look forward to coming home and having our conversations at night.” Call me corny if you want, but that made me happy. I’m giving my wife something to look forward to everyday.
Fellas, the best part is: when you give your wife something to look forward to, that automatically gives you something to look forward to as well!
Take a look at your marriage. Does your wife have anything to look forward to? It should be your goal to have her look forward to something daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and even in the distant future. Don’t allow your marriage to bore the two of you. Have something for the two of you to look forward to!
With that said, I’ll leave you with this Scripture:
Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth. – Proverbs 5:18 (ESV)
