Chapter 23 – The Real Reason to Love & Respect
Why Should You Give Love& Respect to Your Spouse?
It is comprehensible that love and respect can be hard to express when couples are facing hard time. These hard times can range from lack of trust, fear of the unknown, fear of being taking advantage by their spouse, past childhood trauma to severe emotional and physical abuse.
With so many issues that can threaten your marriage why should you seek to really increase love and respect in your marriage? It is simple the benefits outweigh the costs. Now, I want to be extremely clear; I am not making light of trauma and abuse. I truly believe those spouses that are facing abuse should seek protection and stability before working on the marriage. If you are afraid for your life, you cannot really be present in the marriage. Get help. Don’t allow abuse to take your marriage hostage.
