After 29 years of marriage and feeling quite comfortable with each other, our two children being married and off on their own, we ran into trouble…….BIG TROUBLE. We had become living proof that fairy tale marriages can go sideways quickly. I if you think it can’t happen to you, then you are very wrong. Within 3 months of our lives taking a huge nose dive into the darkness of sin, we were on the verge of separating. In fact, I had packed a bag and left my wife and house and thought everything I had ever loved was lost forever.
Then, a miraculous thing happened. Although we were prepared to give up on ourselves, our adult children were not prepared to give up on us. They found the great people at the Relationship Lifeline, signed us up and gave us no other option but to attend. Our children were not prepared to give up on our 29 years of marriage and commitment to each other. They had grown up in a loving home and were not going to let this separation happen without a fight.
Reluctantly, we both decided to accept our children’s offer and attend.
This program changed our lives. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t thank God for those few days that forever changed our lives.
By the end of our experience, we had come to understand where all the hurt and pain originated and how to deal with our own personal pain in order to be able to love one another again.
These people will change your lives if you commit to participating in the program 100%. They changed ours and we have saved a marriage, a family and most of all a love that neither of us was really prepared to lose in the first place.
