Most relationships drift apart not because of things or situations (money, intimacy, etc.). These are just symptoms of an even greater problem. Communication or the lack thereof splinters our connections with each other. Additionally, I found that most couples do not share their life goals with each other; so it’s very easy to find yourself drifting apart. When was the last time you sat with your spouse and discussed the goals that you want for your marriage and family? Now if we look at our relationship with the Father it is also built on communication (prayer). When we fail to communicate with Him on a daily basis our relationship becomes disjointed because we don’t know what His goals are for our life. This is why Jesus encouraged his disciples to always pray (Luke 18:1-8). If your relationship is not where you want it to be, I would encourage you to review your goals with your partner. You may find the answer to your problem is that your goals don’t line up.
