We have all come across people who have started off happy in their relationship. During the first few months, the couple finds it difficult to stay apart from each other, and when they are together, they only seem to have eyes for each other. With the passage of time, things tend to fall apart, and they lament about the lost spark in their relationship. Which is what Dale Partridge, a best-selling author tries to address in his Facebook post, which has now gone viral. He specifically addresses the men in his post, trying to get their attention on the struggles women face, about realistic expectations and about treating her and her body well.
“Men, if you’ve lost eyes for your wife it’s not because she stopped caring for herself, it’s because your love wasn’t based in her heart, it was based in her body. There shouldn’t be any surprise here gentlemen. Our women are bearing children and taking on much of the immense responsibility of raising those babies into responsible kids. The idea that our wives can do all this; run a home, maintain a vibrant connection with God, invest into our relationship, pour into her passions, and keep her body how it was when she was 19, is ridiculous. While I do believe a wife should aim to care for herself, let’s keep our perspective in reality. Love her body, but never more than her. #DaleyWisdom”
