Bishop Richard F. Stika’s message to married couples Taking care of your marriage from the very beginning should be a priority. However, the seasons and cycles of marriage bring change. Those early days of dating, with long talks and feelings of being so close that nothing could ever be more important than each other, make way for family life and children, maintaining a home, jobs, career changes, and all the many challenges that occur in daily life. Today’s couples express a desire for a deep friendship and good communication with their spouse. They want to feel connected at the deepest level of their covenant bond. Sometimes they wake up one morning and say, “What happened?” This can happen early in marriage, during the middle years of raising a family, when they are experiencing the “empty nest” transition after the children leave home, or in their senior years. Couples want to appreciate all that they have in their lives and to recapture the deep friendship, great love, and oneness that are the desire of every married person’s heart. Marriage-enrichment opportunities offer couples a chance to deepen their spirituality, improve their communication, work on financial issues, break old patterns of hurt, and learn to forgive.
