Embrace Change in Your Marriage

If change is inevitable, how can we better embrace it in our husbands and ultimately in our marriages?

The Ted I’m married to today isn’t the same Ted I married almost 12 years ago.

The thing is, he’ll tell you the same thing about me. The Ashleigh he’s married to today isn’t the same Ashleigh he married almost 12 years ago. I’ve changed too.

I’d venture to guess that you and your husband have also changed since that day you promised “I do.” Because the reality is that none of us are static. So as long as we’re living, we all change. Without exception. (God, the Changeless One, is the only one who’s the same yesterday, today, and forever.) Which means none of our relationships are static. They change too. Including our marriages.

So if change is inevitable, how can we better embrace it in our husbands and ultimately in our marriages?

This is what I and five of my blogging friends are discussing this week in our “Embrace Your Marriage: A Virtual Marriage Retreat” series. I’m over at my blog with the article, “Change Together or Grow Apart,” sharing with you one way Ted and I are intentional to grow together.

Also, be sure to read these posts on embracing change in your marriage from my teammates:
