As we settle under the covers, with our backs to one another, we say, “I love you, I got your back.” This started after reading Love & War by John & Stasi Eldredge (I think….we’ve read a LOT of marriage books!)
Anyways, the idea is that marriage is like a battlefield. It’s tough. There are constant obstacles and trials to face. You can try and walk through it alone or together. It’s a great reminder as we fall asleep that we are on the same team, that at the end of the day, it’s our spouse we’re protecting. After God, we place each other over every other thing in our lives. Job? Friends? Family? Bret wins out every time. Part of having his back means looking for areas of weakness in his life. Knowing him more than any other person knows him allows me to see when he’s struggling with something before even he knows it. It goes both ways. Just today he pointed out another way to look at something we’re walking through…in one of those “you’re so right, but I hate that you’re right AND I didn’t see it before……but thank you for helping me with this.”
What about you? How do you have your spouse’s back? Are you putting them above everyone and everything else in your life?
