Why It Matters: The Importance of Your Efforts To Save Your Marriage

150 150 Lee H. Baucom, Ph.D.

Why your efforts to save your marriage are so important.  Why you are doing it, and why it matters.It matters.  Your efforts to save your marriage.  They matter.  Your desire to work things through, to find a better way for your relationship.  It matters.

When you are in the midst of the struggle, it can feel horrible.  You can get frustrated and discouraged, forget the reasons why you are doing it, and be ready to throw your hands up in the air in defeat.

Before you do that, let me tell you:  What you are doing, IT MATTERS!

Every single day, I watch as people fight through the hurt and pain, the emotions and discouragement, to keep on working on a hurting relationship.  I am in awe of that effort.  It is truly courageous.

We live in a world of “disposables.”  People easily discard anything.  Including marriages.  They fail to see the hurt, the harm that is caused by pushing it aside.  They think they are taking the better, easier way.  Instead, they are buying into the disposable culture — only to see the destruction in hindsight.

But you.  You have chosen to stand up to that and say, “I want to save this.”  It won’t be easy, but it is noble.

Let me tell you why it matters, why this is so important, in this week’s podcast.

    Hi. My wife and I are separated although still living in the same house. She had a brief relationship with another man which has now ended. Can you give advice on how someone can get over the infatuation and begin to think clearly about working on their marriage. It has been 2 months since their relationship failed and he is still in her thoughts constantly. Love your resource. Cheers Paul
