Not feeling the love; Loneliness in Marriage

Relationships Can Be Difficult; Avoid Loneliness In Marriage

Like many things in our lives, time passes, and it can get away from us. The desire for connection is one that we all have. When you experience loneliness in your marriage, it can be saddening, not to mention confusing.

Maybe you have a few kids running around and a spouse you see every day, and that passion and love are not there like it used to be. That feeling you had, at the beginning of your relationship, the one where you knew someone was thinking of you and wanted you, it’s not there, or at least not in the way it used to be.

Get Back Your Passion

Passion does not have to stop when married.

So how does one get it back? Is it even possible to be able to look at your spouse again with that excitement, with that desire you had in the beginning?

It is true that relationships change over time, and it is normal, to some extent, for the spark to fade a little, but a good relationship can maintain a spark.

I’ve heard some people say, “I’m just not attracted to my spouse anymore, ”

but the attraction is more than just a physical component in a relationship. A lack of appeal is not about a few pounds or thinning hair; it’s about something much bigger.

Physicality Is Not The Reason

Love, respect, dependability and acceptance can incite passion into relationships, regardless of how one physically sees their partner.

If you feel lost in your relationship, it is time to be found. You might think it’s not important, I have kids to raise, and I’ll worry about it later but do you want to teach your kids that happiness in a marriage isn’t necessary? Putting your kids first is putting you and your marriage first.

There are many ways out there you can work on rekindling the flame. If you don’t know where to start, a little couples therapy can give you insight and help you get on track. Imagine looking forward to your spouse coming home for a reason other than help with the kids. It can be that way again.
