For the restless spouse feeling discouraged, there is an abundant supply of distractions ready to meet their need for escape. We escape into our work or into the lives of our kids. We escape into the endless abyss of the Internet and the pseudo-life it provides. However, the vows made at the beginning mean that when we want to run, we keep showing up. When we don’t like our spouse anymore—and there will be times when we really don’t like them anymore—we come back and stay vulnerable.
