Strength Through Trouble

From TODAY, TUESDAY July 29, 2008

By Dr James Dobson

There’s nothing better than a great marriage.

But great marriages take a lot of work. We all go through times that are tough and challenging, and even the closest relationships can get strained.

Sometimes people lose jobs or businesses, or suffer a devastating injury. Other times the busyness of life gets in the way, causing physical and emotional stress.

At this point, instead of leaning on each other, couples start to pull away, causing feelings of pain and rejection. When that happens, just being aware of the potential problems can do wonders for preventing them. And communication is your strongest defence against trouble.

Instead of letting hard times come between you, see them as opportunities to strengthen your relationship.

Talk to your spouse and loved ones about what’s going on in your life, and let them help you through it.

Going through hardship alone is just a formula for trouble.
