“N” is for Need

There are times when our relationship with our spouse feels off. Like things are out of balance. One place to look for a way to bring things back into harmony is to look at what your marriage needs.

Need (Definition): a lack of something required

Don’t confuse a need for a want or desire. Just because we desire something doesn’t mean we actually need it. But there are things that our marriage needs to make it work well. When things in our marriage are out of sorts, we should ask ourselves the question: What is lacking in the relationship right now? Maybe there is something that your marriage needs that has been lacking for awhile, or perhaps it is something that has only recently become a need. When you have pinpointed the need, then the question becomes: How do we fill this need?

Troubleshooting a relationship can be a lot of work, but well worth the effort. Take a look at the things that your marriage needs and determine if there is any place that needs some attention.

Here are some things that marriages need:

  • Prayer (always beneficial even when things are good)
  • Compromise
  • Give and take
  • Encouragement
  • Gestures of love
  • Loyalty
  • Stress relievers
  • Gratitude
  • Dreams
  • Patience
  • Time
