Many things compete for our attention and affection. Relatives, children, work, friends, hobbies, dreams, entertainment… The spouse is not the only one. Therefore, you cannot assume that the fire of passion that initially united you both will always be burning by itself.
Many things and people will come in between you, and if you allow it, they will take the place of your spouse. And this is how a once solid relationship becomes fragile, cold, until it finally goes out.
Your marriage needs to be protected (or bulletproof, as we say) and intentionally worked on to keep the flame burning.
This is not difficult. It’s just a matter of maintenance with intelligence.
