Warning Signs of Running on Empty in Your Marriage


Here are the warning signs of running on empty in your marriage.

  • You think you have to choose between your spouse and your kids. If you do, you are comparing two different types of love. Living a balanced life doesn't require choosing.
  • Your lives are very fragmented. You spend more time running here and there and doing this and that than you spend together.
  • When together you both tend to be in your own little world.
  • You both find yourself easily irritated over small annoyances.
  • Disagreements and misunderstandings between the two of you increase.
  • Several months pass before you realize the two of you haven't had a date or planned alone time together.
