      Christian marriage coeilusnng, I believe, has greater potential as an active ingredient in the healing process than any other type of therapy. Why? Because marriage between a man and woman is God’s plan so it only stands to reason that the repair procedures for an unhealthy marriage could be found in His word.My wife and I went through Christian marriage coeilusnng provided a trained, licensed, minister of the faith who was exceptionally gifted in using the Word of God to help couples in the reconciliation process. These are important credentials in choosing a counselor. What makes Christian marriage coeilusnng effective is the willingness of the couple to truly uncover, forgive, and die-to-self. It has to be understood that none of these things are within our human ability to accomplish alone. We need the help of the Holy Spirit to facilitate the type of radical change that must take place in one’s heart, deep down inside, in order for real change to take place. You’ll know it is happening when your focus is less on what your mate is doing than what you are doing in and with your relationship with God.Fifteen years later, my wife and I are stronger than ever. Has the road been free of bumps? No. But I have heard it said that if the mountain were as smooth as glass, you wouldn’t be able to climb it. We are still living in and by what we learned in Christian marriage coeilusnng. Our marriage is not about determination and resolve to make it work; its about the freedom to love one another and let the other be who they are with full faith and confidence that what holds us together is not our resolve, but trust and assurance in Jesus Christ that He is able to sustain us through any storm that might come our way.

    Also would love to know how NOT to miss your ex when you have zero connection with your dates and are left reminiscing.

    • It can be hard, especially when you don’t find that intimacy with someone new because it takes time. Be aware of when you’re comparing or missing and work to train your brain not to follow that path. This can be a time to remind yourself of what you don’t miss and/or why you’re in a better place now. There will always be certain aspects of your ex that you prefer to anyone new, but focus on the big picture rather than those nuances. Hope that helps!

  5. I agree, I wish there was a magical formula. Believe it or not, I get asked this same question by the dads I talk with. I think what is said is good. For the dads I simplify it a bit more: 1) When you feel comfortable in your own skin, and new living arrangements; 2) When you can talk to others for an entire day without bring up or referring to your Ex; 3) When your really close friends (not the ones trying to set you up), say I think you are ready.

    Too many dads try to rush the process and don’t take time to adapt to change. Hope this helps–at least from the male perspective. *hehe*
