I Am Not In Love With My Wife Anymore
It took me a long time to realize that I am not happy in my marriage because I am not in love with my wife anymore. Although I still loved her, I was not in love and therefore I felt that I could not stay married to my wife any longer. Thankfully, my wife did not feel the same way and fought for our marriage. My name is Michael and I am writing my story as a guest blogger for the Marriage Fitness website. My story will show how I was able to not only fix my marriage, but also become completely happy in my marriage. Being happy in my marriage also allowed me to fall back in love with my wife. Continue reading to see how my wife and I made this possible.
Confronting My Own Feelings
I didn’t notice that I had fallen out of love with my wife at first. I thought that we were in a typical rut and it would pass. However, I was wrong. There was no more excitement in our marriage. Our relationship turned from two people who love each other to two people who are living together and have nothing to do with one another. I would also find myself spending a lot of time out of the house as not to confront my feelings. One day when I was working late at the office, I recognized that I am not in love with my wife anymore. In my mind, I thought that the only option was divorce. It was extremely difficult to come to terms with my realization but it seemed like the right thing to do at the time.
Confronting My Wife
Knowing that I am not in love with my wife anymore was the worst feeling I ever had. However, knowing that I had to confront my wife about this was an even worse feeling. I couldn’t bear the thought of hurting my wife and breaking her heart, yet I couldn’t allow myself to feel this unhappy anymore. When I built up the courage to tell my wife, I felt horrible that she was devastated. I never wanted her to feel this way, and I definitely did not want to be the reason for these awful feelings. I owe everything to my wife. She was so strong and amazing and offered to go to marriage counseling. I was very skeptical at first but knew that I owed my wife a chance.
Fixing Our Marriage
I reluctantly began Marriage Fitness Tele Boot Camp with my wife a week after I told her my feelings. To my surprise I really enjoyed the program. Additionally, the fact that we were doing something as a team brought us closer to each other. The boot camp gave us step by step instructions on how to better our marriage and become happy. We are now madly in love and it is all because of Marriage Fitness, and my wife.
