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!
