Couple Challenge: Conversation Starter

282

When emotional distance sets in, one or both marriage partners end up feeling lonely. As a result, they will typically begin to pursue other things to fill in the gaping hole that loneliness leaves behind. Things such as caring for children, hobbies, church activities, etc. The other danger of emotional distance is filling the loneliness by pursuing other people, such as spending more time with friends or having an affair. Discuss any emotional distance in your relationship. In what ways are you contributing to emotional distance in your relationship? What is needed to bridge the gap and build closeness? What steps can you take to avoid emotional distance?

In my bed at night I sought the one I love; I sought him, but did not find him.

At the end of the day, as you climb into bed together, talk about what it was like trying to communicate this way. Do you ever feel like when you are trying to communicate in a normal way that it is just as difficult as trying to communicate through memes?
