William Doherty believes that in today’s world – “cellphone obsessed, distracted, individualistic, consumer driven, media saturated and work orientated world”, people experience less spark, less intimacy and less focus on the couple relationship. Add to that the modern “child centered” parenting approach and it is evident why some marriages drift into decline over time. Parents become focussed on parent-child rituals, and transfer their devotion onto their children. One day they wake up and wonder where their connection went.
We all want to be loved, admired and cared for. If you are committed to your relationship for the long haul, resist all the above things that are pulling you apart, and work on restoring intimacy.
