According to Dr. James Dobson:
“Beware of the danger of overcommitment and physical exhaustion . It is especially harmful for young couples who are trying to get started in a profession or in school. Do not try to go to college, work full-time, have a baby, manage a toddler, fix up a house and start a business all at the same time. It sounds ridiculous, but many young couples do just that and are then surprised when their marriage falls apart. Why wouldn’t it? The only time they see each other is when they are worn out! It is especially dangerous to have the husband vastly overcommitted and the wife staying home with a preschooler. Her profound loneliness builds discontent and depression and we all know where that leads. You must reserve time for one another if you want to keep your love alive.”
Oh man. We are walking on a thin line.
