When you’re disenchanted with your marriage, the intimate husband-wife relationship you once celebrated is deteriorating, and marital bliss has proven an elusive cliché, disappointment reigns. Stripped of the illusion that marriage is easy and love is painless, it’s tempting to succumb to self-absorbed inaction. You may be asking, “Why should I be the first one to reach out?” Perhaps strained communication with your husband or wife has your confidence faltering. Or maybe your spouse’s callous inattention to your feelings has driven you to shield yourself with a haughty indifference. Realize this: Satan wants you to feel powerless to salvage your marriage.
