In today’s world, it seems people are attached to their cell phone to the point that it seems to be an extension of their body. This can be incredibly destructive in a marriage. How many times do you use your cell phone while talking to you spouse, or at the dinner table, if you actually have dinner at a dinner table, and if not, while having dinner even out at a restaurant? Do you use your cell phone in bed? If you do, you’re not alone, but unfortunately, this can have a severe impact on a marriage or any significant primary relationship.
The reality is our lives are incredibly busy with a multitude of distractions. We spend so much time at work or on work. Much time is also spent sleeping, taking care of daily things like eating, shopping, housework, leisure, hobbies, and time with our children. So much of our time is accounted for. As this article points out, all we have left for our spouse is “leftovers”.
It’s important for a marriage and any primary relationships to spend dedicated quality time that this primary relationship deserves.
Don’t let your cellphone become the device that destroys your marriage.
