Marriage was Meant to Last
Broken trust and broken dreams?
Lonely, disconnected and unhappy?
Feeling more like roommates than lovers?
Intimacy? What's that? That left at 40!
Is he having a midlife crisis or a midlife funk?
She is not the woman I married?
Is there hope for our marriage to thrive not just survive?
Everything looks great on the surface but what’s the truth underneath? We don’t know. The truth is no one knows. Only you know what is going on behind closed doors.
Maybe you have experienced divorce, contemplated divorce, or have a nagging fear within you that it could happen to you.
Let us start by saying we understand. Robin and I have an eXtraOrdinary relationship today but that wasn’t always the case. In our 34 years of marriage we have had our share of struggles that could have taken us down. We are not unfamiliar with, addictions, infidelity, criticism, contempt, defensiveness, stonewalling, loneliness, feeling like roommates more than lovers. We understand betrayal, mistrust, resentment and jealousy. We can relate to the feelings of wanting to throw in the towel but who wants to start over.
As a pastor, I (Darrell) know what it is like to stand in the pulpit and preach on relationships and go home to a broken one. I know what it is like to “Preach the Word” while living with the guilt of not “Living the Word.” I know what it feels like to put on the happy face and the facade and make an appearance like all is well only to cry in my own brokenness, emptiness, and despair.
As a pastor’s wife, I (Robin) know what it’s like to sit in the congregation listening to my husband preach about relationships knowing ours is struggling. I know what it’s like to be in leadership, pretending my life is great while teaching and praying for other women. I know what it’s like to have secrets I cannot share because “I’m the pastor’s wife” and people wouldn’t understand.
