      Yes, a trust issue and not letting go af the past.
      We have to forgive and leave the past because we can’t change it and look forward for new things.

      It is difficult to hope for a better future in marriage when the same conflicts keep coming up. One can let go of this if a person believes it can change.

      Yes, I don’t see any hope unless my husband decides to work on the marriage with me.

      Yes, my husband can be very mean. We have been to counseling and it hasn’t helped.

      There has been a lack of intimacy in our marriage including hugging and kissing. I need’ to learn to do my expections as a wife or what I perceive to be my husband’s expectations and perhaps, there will be a change in this. I need to learn to have a servant’s heart and not expect anything in return.

      Believing a better future in your marriage is not possible will suppress the desire to grow. I believe the response taught regarding the sad trial experiment with dogs, was a great example of settling for the worse. A better future can be achieved by couples who believe it’s possible “together.”

      Yes, by not letting go of past mistakes, hurts and difficulties, I will be thinking things will be the same as in the past. If I stay focused on the past, I can end up settling for circumstances that are far less than ideal. This will give me a sense of why hope for anything better. Letting go of “no hope for a better future” begins with me changing how I respond to my husband. Letting go will also take trust and believing Jesus is right by my side holding my hand and guiding my actions and my words.

      Sometimes the constant arguments in marriage makes it seems a bit difficult to hope for a better future in my marriage. The many disagreements that seem to never get resolved. Letting ago, forgiving, moving on and building a positive and healthy relationship can only be achieved with the help of the Lord.

      This is too personal to put in a chat box.

      In my marriage, my husband and I are both believers in Jesus Christ. I am more active in my faith than my husband and I become discouraged that he doesn’t pursue God more. Early in our marriage this caused conflicts because each of us wanted the other to conform to their idea of following God. I have chosen to grow in my faith and relationship with Christ and pray for my husband to do the same but I no longer pressure him to worship the way I believe he should but instead I encourage him to grow at his own pace with God and he does the same with me.
