My husband returned home last year September after spending 5 years working away from home. During those 5 years I had to be Mom and Dad to my 4 teenagers. I learnt how to balance my life in that role and became very good at it i.e. very independent and self sufficient, so much so that when my husband came back home I found it difficult to readjust to life as a proper couple again. We’ve spent the last year fighting each to the point where, after 23 years of marriage, the divorce word was now in play. About a month before starting the Course I’d given my wedding rings back to my husband and we were just waiting for our youngest daughter to finish her matric exams. About three weeks into the Course I started to learn a lot about having Peace and how God intended marriage. So I spoke to my husband (not shouted) to then realise that he also had issues he was dealing with – he felt that the children grew into adults while he was away working. They had moved on – had jobs etc. He felt like he didn’t know them anymore. Since I’ve learnt how to gain God’s peace in my heart and life and my relationship with my husband is on the mend. About 4 weeks ago he put my wedding rings back on my finger and we are happily working through our marriage. Thank you and may God continue to bless you This Course has touched my life and given me hope once again!
