Through research done for my books, I’ve seen that there are many reasons why marriages break. One rather common reason seems to be ‘she doesn’t love me the way I love her’ or ‘He doesn’t seem to care about me’.
And so I’m going to focus on exploring that issue in this post.
I just wanted to make one small point (and I’m not referring here to abusive marriages.That’s a different blog topic altogether. I’m merely talking about average relationships that can survive if slightly tweaked): People show love in different ways. Just because one person is a romantic who believes in cuddling up and saying ‘I love you’ multiple times a day, doesn’t mean the spouse must express love in the same manner. Maybe the other person is of a practical nature and prefers showing love through their actions and deeds. As they say, love is a many splendoured thing and is visible in many different ways. Please don’t be too disappointed in case your partner isn’t the sort who recites poetry to you. Perhaps they are trying to make your life easier in countless small ways which you may not have stopped long enough to notice.
When we start noticing the little things, a lot of other things start making sense.
