Have you had a chance to listen to the recent hit song by P!ink and Nate Ruess (frontman of the band Fun)?
The song, title “Just Give Me A Reason” speaks directly about one of the most important messages we have at StrongMarriageNow: the ability to rekindle your relationship and learn to fall back in love with the person you’re already married to!
The song’s lyrics deal with a couple who has grown apart, and are experiencing “falling out of love” – a feeling that may be all to familiar for many married couples.
The song, however, is hopeful (and this is where it lines up with what we’re all about at StrongMarriageNow). The lyrics say:
“Just give me a reason
Just a little bit’s enough
Just a second, we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again”
This says a great deal about the power to rebuild romantic relationships in the face of difficulty, whether it’s an affair, arguments, financial trouble, or simply “falling out of love.”
As the lyrics say, it can start with just one reason, finding one little thing about your spouse that reminds you why you fell for them in the first place, or that you’re committed to making it work. This or any other reason that’s meaningful to you can be enough to start rebuilding your marriage and learn to love again.
The image conjured by “we’re not broken just bent” provides real hope for couples experiencing a rough time in their marriage – it isn’t necessarily broken, it isn’t time to throw in the towel and chalk it up as a loss. If it’s just bent, it can be fixed, and it only takes a few steps in the right direction to start straightening out the kinks and getting things back on track.
If you’re feeling disconnected in your marriage, feeling that things just aren’t the way they used to be, find that one reason and learn to love again! To start learning how to love again and save your marriage, check out our StrongMarriageNow System today.
Check out the music video P!nk Just Give Me A Reason above. Note the presence of P!nk with her real-life husband, Carey Hart. The couple continues the fight to make their marriage work despite it’s ups and downs.
Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!

Does my spouse need to believe as well? She is still communicating with her high school sweethart and I don't have much hope that we can survive his involvement in her life. They had a deep connection when they were teenagers and now they have connected as she gets ready to turn 50. I am praying to God for his help.
We are praying for you as well. Dont give give up hope.
Dear Dana , Past few days have been extremely stressful and confusing to me on this situation .I have seen your many videos and felt that you're very sensible person on this topic of understanding marriage and relationships.I have been kept in a situation where I can't decide whether I am right or wrong .please help with that . I have exchanged few messages on FaceBook with this friend of mine from school and I have also commented or liked his one group picture .My husband is suspicious that I had an affair with him before marriage in the past .Its been 9 years me and my husband have been married .And we have been very loyal to each other without any problem from his side or my side .I have told my husband many time that I never had an affair with this guy he is just a friend .And this friend is unmarried . So my husband is thinking more in detail that why I messaged him on facebook and asked for his number .He is keeping me that I had bad intentions in asking for this guy's number.I gave my husband all the phone logs that I never called this guy ,and I accepted that it was my mistake if you are hurt by my this act and I will never o it again .I told my husband that this guy doesn't matter to me at all .I have two beautiful children and a happy family . I don't know why in the world I asked for his number .But If I had any bad intentions I would have called this guy , which i never did . I also admitted that I truly love my husband and no one else .But he continues to say that he has lost trust on me. Is this fair ?Have i committed crime ?I am hurt that is this the strength or extense of trust one should carry when they are married for 9 years . On the other hand My husband secretly kept a picture of his ex-girlfriend from his college and when I found it I told him I didn't like this act so he deleted from the computer and saved it in his email box . When I found it there I was hurt that it matters to him so much that even he knows I don't want him to keep those pictures he still keeping those. Now he says he don't have any feeling for those pictures and he doesn't care where are they . I have also told him several times there is no underlying feeling behind those messages but he doesn't believe. What to do , AM I WRONG ??Please help me on this . thanks
