#002: Confronting the Roommate Syndrome

This episode addresses an area that will confront any marriage and prevent you from experiencing the potential your marriage posseses–this involves the roommate syndrome. No matter how long you have been married or how great your marriage might be, the roommate syndrome can easily creep in, unless you are aware of the symptoms.

The roommate syndrome works in different ways, but its biggest work is pulling the marriage into a complacency. There becomes a slow loss of pursuit, growth and union. Or maybe you feel the pursuit, growth and union has never been healthy. This is the work of the roommate syndrome. It is designed to keep us from discovering in our marriage the depth of covenant we can experience and learn the depth of Christ’s love for us.

Every marriage has to confront the roommate syndrome and be aware of how it creeps in. This episodes is a strong exhortation to get out of the spell that the roommate syndrome seeks to put on your covenant. It’s not for the faint of heart, the luke-warm or those that don’t want what’s possible.¬†Remember, this show is “Marriage for Overcomers.”
