Your Spouse Deserves Your Best

Successful, healthy, and rewarding marriage doesn't come about by chance. It is a result of choice. It is a result of setting a goal for it. It is a result of planning for it. It is a result of working at it.
"Always strive to give your spouse the very best of yourself; not what’s left over after you have given your best to everyone else." ― Dave Willis.
Your spouse deserves the best of you, not what is left over after you have attended to every other issue of life. And, that is irrespective of what those issues might be. Giving the best of you to your spouse should not be left to chance. It should be a goal. It should be planned and worked towards. There is no excuse for abandoning him or her. Your spouse needs to be included in your plan for success in life and marriage.
And They Were Not Ashamed

Your plan needs to include scheduling time together. You need to schedule a time to connect and build on your relationship. Don't expect your spouse to understand your abandoning him/her. He/she does not understand. They did not marry you only to be abandoned or receive what is left over you after giving your best to others.
"Resentment develops when you repeatedly feel unheard, dismissed or feel that a spouse puts other interests ahead of you and the marriage." ― Dr. Anne Brennan Malec.
Nothing can replace the actual act of physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual interaction and connectedness that is supposed to be a part of a NORMAL marriage relationship. MONEY, GIFTS, and the like CANNOT take their place. We are each made for so much more. The BEST and MOST PRIZED GIFT we give to our spouse is OURSELF. And, that is irrespective of your story. 

After all, is said and done, who we married is our spouse, not what they have or can provide. And, nothing will satisfy other than the giving and receiving of one another. That is what is known as intimacy. And, what is a marriage without intimacy? Time to check the wall of your marriage. Do you have any broken parts? 
"The healthiest relationships are those where you’re a team; where you protect each other and stand up for one another." ― Sharon Rivkin.
Time to repair and fortify the walls of your marriage. Don't give place to the enemy. Provoke one another to love. You can have paradise here on earth. All it takes is giving attention to the seemingly little details.
