    What are some specific marriage problems faced by couples?
    Many couples simply stop working at the relationship after marriage; and they can begin to take one another for granted. It is not something that is done intentionally, but it happens gradually bovver time. As a result, they may not communicate anymore, they may start to neglect or even resent one another. Some couples experience jealousy or control issues. One or both partners may become bored. Partners can lose interest in sex and romance. They may stop communicating. All of these issues can take the marriage through a stagnant state which can escalate into a problem state. When couples start to take one another for granted, mutual respect may be lost. One partner may turn to selfish behavior or fail to listen to their spouse. He may become bored and start going out late, for example. When his wife nags at him for being out late, he doesn’t listen; he pretends to listen, but just continues to do the same every night. This results in escalation; she may nag at him louder and more angrily, while he disappears more frequently and for longer periods of time. Most issues couples face are pretty minimal at the start, but they culminate and become bigger if not handled. Resentment can also grow over time, which makes the couple less likely to want to deal appropriately. Addressing issues as they arise is the healthiest strategy and provides the most promising outcome.

    What kind of a marriage will I have in future?
    While it is wonderful to imagine the ideal marriage, remember that there is no ideal. A plethora of factors play into the future of a marriage including health issues, family concerns, financial health, and the like. If you seek a strong marriage, and not necessarily a perfect marriage, be willing to converse with your partner about the good, bad, and ugly of the relationship. Bringing a mental health provider into the conversation is always a good approach as well. Picture facets of a strong marriage instead of being locked into an ideal of an unattainable perfect marriage.

    Does God want me to stay in an abusive marriage or I am thinking negatively?
    Divorce, like war, is hell. When children are involved in Before, during, and beyond divorce, support and sound counseling become essential for all involved. Hopefully the church, if engaged by the parties, becomes one of many providers of support and counseling. However, do not assume that the church, churchgoers, and religious leaders will deliver the care and guidance you seek. Communities that espouse inerrancy as a core tenant of their identity are especially prone to promoting a “until death do us part” approach to the marriage union unless narrow grounds for dissolution are met. This may become man emotional death sentence – or worse – for those caught in the spin cycle of abuse and/or addiction. God doesn’t want us to be miserable.

    Can you suggest some advice for a happy marriage?
    Sometimes the best advice to nurturing a happy marriage is not overthinking it. In another words, do not try to over-program your marriage, with counseling, numerous spontaneous events, and diatribes about issues that do not matter so much.

Offering “presence” for a spouse instead of oversight of a spouse, is a good way to nurture the trust that’s need to maintain the marriage.
