Every now and then my wife and I jokingly remind each other that we would miss the quirky things about each other if one of us were gone (as in dead). That can be a very serious type of conversation too if you think about it.
Let’s all admit we’ve had the conversation with our spouse about what would they do if for some reason we no longer had the ability to have sex. We might have even had the conversation with our spouse about what would they do if we lost everything – went completely broke. Those are fair questions to ask – right?
We want to know that our spouse loves us unconditionally. We want to know that they wouldn’t leave us if we become a burden – that our love and companionship is worth any sacrifice they might have to make. We want to be able to make the same promise in return so that our marriage has a trust that assures us no matter what happens we will still have each other.
