There are times when every marriage faces struggles. At times like these it’s important to remember that you can get through it better together.

Roy: Truthfully … at times I struggle. At stages like this, my life feels difficult, a struggle, like walking through treacle. I’ve discovered that it’s at times like these when I have a choice, to muddle through on my own or reach out for my spouse. It’s at times like these that I have learned to appreciate my wife more. I don’t like her having to take up the slack, but I am so thankful that she does.

Lainey: There have been times when the boot was on the other foot. I have certainly walked through seasons which I’ve found difficult, challenging, disconcerting and overwhelming. On these occasions, I have seen Ecclesiastes in action. I’m grateful that God has brought someone along side me who I can reach out for when it’s a difficult season. I guess that’s the beauty of a marriage. Marriage is a partnership. Both work together and encourage one another.

Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labour:
If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
