Join the Adventure!

I’ve talked a good deal about men’s need for adventure. I’ve also talked a little about you joining him in adventure.

Just as your cautious side can help him by tempering his craziness, his desire for adventure can help you by moving you into something bigger.

I believe God made us all, male and female, for adventure. Men may crave it more than women do, but women need it too. A “safe” life can become a life not worth living. We do better when we have challenges. New things help us grow and sharing new things causes marriage growth.

If your husband tries to draw you into adventure, resist the urge to resist. If what he suggests is too much for you, offer a compromise. 

If your husband has stopped trying to draw you into adventure, apologise to him and ask him to keep inviting you.

You can also make the invitation to adventure. It’s a good thing for your marriage!

  1. What about when a husband has lost his drive for adventure? When he has no vision for himself or the family? When he is perfectly content to work his 40 hours and come home and plant himself in front of the TV?

    • It’s going to be a function of why he has given up, and what remains of his desire deep inside. Of course this means a lot of introspection, which is something many men avoid.
      The change probably occurred slowly, even if it did not show up that way. Changing back will also be slow. Look for small ways to nudge him and fan the embers.

    • libl I find it helps to have bucket list conversations. There are some items we may never accomplish, but talking about them at least brings those dreams to life for a bit. That in itself is stimulating. Perhaps such conversation could fan the embers as Paul suggests.
