I was speaking with a dear friend the other day, and she was sharing about friendship and marriage. She raised a really important point, one that I had not thought much about lately, but one that could change the way we relate to our spouses and improve our marriages.
“How do you treat your best girlfriend?” She asked.
“With compassion, kindness, attentiveness and gentleness?” I answered cautiously, suspecting where she was going with this.
“Do you usually treat your hubby the same way, or better?”
Better? Was she kidding? The same? Not sure. Talk about conviction!
It’s no wonder our spouses often feel left out or rejected by us. We make such an effort to build and maintain our friendships, but often ignore or side-line our life partner.
Is it time to rethink our closest friendship? I think it may be.
