Have you ever asked if it was time to let go of your marriage?
After writing a post on what I’ve learned after 25 years of marriage, I received a question from a reader that broke my heart. It was a question I hear far too often from women who are weary in well-doing when it comes to their marriage.
The question was “How do you know when it’s time to let go of your marriage?” The woman asking the question was tired of being the only one fighting for her marriage. She was weary of “always trying to do the right thing.”
I understand when a wife says her husband is emotionally distant. I understand it gets trying and wearisome when you feel you’re the only one who is working on the marriage. I understand unmet expectations, disappointments, and dashed dreams. And I understand the feeling of “I just can’t do this anymore.” I’ll tell you why.
