You are not at the end of your relationship journey once you’re married. For your love and marriage to keep growing and thriving, you have to realize that the pursuit of your spouse never stops.
Think about when you first started dating your now-spouse: you pursued them, called them, texted them, stayed in constant communication, went on dates weekly or even more, told them you loved them all the time, wanted to spend as much time with them as possible, and more.
This passion and fierceness over someone you love – it is not meant to last forever. Three reasons that this type of passionate love does not last: it burns too quickly, it was not meant to sustain us, and it can become like a wildfire, consuming both of you.
However, the love for your spouse is more of a gentle fire in the fireplace that warms you and covers you with warmth and security. BUT, you have to keep the fire going.
Think on this: there are several types of ways to pursue your spouse through different intimacies: physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and social. This is not to say that we need to always be pursuing them in every area every single day. But it is something to think on when thinking of ways to pursue your spouse (and it’s not just in the bedroom!)
We get into some ways that we can pursue your spouse; so husbands and wives, listen up for more!
