So how do we grow in marital oneness? What helps are available?
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. Genesis 2:24 ESV
I’m a big fan of small marriage focused groups. Paul and I go to one and, though we are reading a book to discuss, we’re not afraid of bunny trails where people share from their hearts and ask hard questions.
If you don’t have the option of a marriage group, try reading a marriage book (or two) a year with your sweetie. Staying focused on your marriage and learning marriage skills is an incredible help in keeping your marriage strong.
Having a weekly coffee date can also be a great tool. Discuss your week and use that time to look at your calendar, get on the same page, and dream a little.
As an aside, if you and your spouse are significantly struggling in your marriage, do seek third party help. It’s one of the best investments you can make.
