How Can I Help My Husband? (Contributing to Your Husband’s Healing Environment)
Marriage and Combat Trauma
Every relationship is different. Levels, modes, experience and depth of communication vary from couple to couple. Add to that the extreme relationship stress of Combat Trauma, and you could have some real challenges. You might find it very difficult to imagine you and your husband sitting down together and quietly discussing your household roles, communication issues and sexual intimacy. That’s okay! You simply might not be there yet – but that doesn’t mean you won’t be six months or a year from now. If you come across a suggestion that just seems impossible, don’t put pressure on yourself and try to push for it right away. Make it a matter of prayer, and see how God might change the landscape over time. What may be impossible today may be perfectly plausible in the future!
