The question is what can a man do if his wife no longer loves him:

Personally I too have marital issues which is leading toward a divorce if things in my life do not change. Twenty years ago I received a blessing from God, He allowed me to have the job of my childhood dreams. I thanked Him daily and prayed each day to guide me to inspire His Will. Along the way and everyday I asked God to send a helpmate, the woman who would complete the life God blessed me with. Within a few years and a thriving career my wife walked through front door. Seven years went by after that day and we finally married. What a change I have experienced since the day I vowed to God I would be the husband He command us to be. Though we are not perfect, as well our battle with temptation becomes a reflection of our deepest desirers triggering the sin which separates what God has joined together. 

My wife and I began to have troubles when we went into debt and stopped attending church. What is troubling about this comes from idolizing material items. We tithed, prayed, participated in most church functions, we studied the bible together, and with our kids. During the first three years we were very involved with the church we joined and my closest friend as the Pastor which now counsels us. The church began to fall apart, the Pastor shortly left and we tried to follow but became a difficult feet for the family to travel for church attendance. 

Three years went by, we did not search for another place to worship and day by day my wife and I blessings were no more. Arguments and anger was now the curse we endure. Accusations with doubt was weekly, painful words came from nowhere and what was once a encouraging life for all to see now has become a terrible stale joke for spectators to watch crumble. 

Naturally we want to blame each other, but the reality is the lack of Christ in our home. We both know that Jesus is the truth, light, and way to a well nourished home life, we failed to continue our journey reading His road map learning how to avoid the pitfalls. Today we both attend counseling from our Pastor who married us, and very expensive Christian Counselor who is teaching us through the Holy Spirit how to put it back together. 

I have back peddled a couple of times, but because we recognize our problems it is becoming a little easier to deal with. Our biggest step will be attending church regularly and returning to God and idolizing Him. 

Mr. Webster, your wife loves you but has communication problems between both of you. I will pray you find a Christian Counselor before the devil wins another separation of Gods creation. If you search for our Father He will not fail you, and if you allow him to heal your marriage the blessings will be abundant. I will pray you and your wife find the true problem and God to fix your marriage so to encourage others to follow what God ahs Commanded. 

God Bless
