A Note for the Guys…part 2

OK guys, my intention is to not beat you up, but to give you a little of a reality check.  Beginning in January, you’ll begin to hear more and more about Family Life’s Weekend to Remember. This marriage weekend getaway is an amazing opportunity to have candid talks with your wife about your marriage. Let me add this, attending a marriage conference like this does not mean that you are doing something wrong. What it means is you have the fundamental understanding that marriage is too hard to do alone. It means that you are committed to having a thriving marriage amongst your peers, and that you only want the best for your spouse and for your marriage.

I’ve talked to many people about the Weekend to Remember getaways and in more then a dozen conversations I’ve had with women, they say, “I’d love to go, but it’s a matter of my husband wanting to go to.” You see guys, here is your wake up call. Your wife wants YOU to take the lead here. She wants YOU to be the man that you are and be the spiritual leader for your family.

She can only drop so many hints before she feels like she is disrespecting you. She only wants to spend the time with you and to come closer physically, emotionally and spiritually. I’ve had conversations with enough guys and I know this can be a serious issue. We like to drag our feet on some of this stuff. Some guys might go as far as saying, “I said I love you at our wedding, why do I need to anything else. That alone should be good enough.” Sorry, my friend, you are wrong.

When you are investing in your marriage, you are giving your wife maybe the greatest gift she could receive. She recognizes that you are placing her above your football games, your hunting trips, and your work.

What’s my point? My point is begin today asking your self what you can do to make your marriage amazing? It’s time you invest in what is important.
