If I ignore my hunger for food because I forget about eating or don’t want to take the time, the result is illness. The result is usually a stomach ache, headache, migraine, maybe vomiting or fainting will follow. I’ve been told I’m hypoglycemic. I once fainted while performing as a bridesmaid during a friends wedding. Sorry Janet! If you ignore the thirst in your marriage the result will be similar. An unhealthy marriage. Remember the thirst when you first married? To serve, communicate, date, pray for and with, romance, weekend getaways, planning, sharing new experiences, etc. When I don’t eat, if I ignore it long enough the feeling will pass. The end result is dangerous for me. But when I eventually eat I do feel hungry again and the food tastes so good. Maybe you have lost some of the thirst in your marriage but if you begin to do the things that thirsty people do, I promise you that the feelings and health will return. If you don’t quench the marriage thirst the result can be fatal. Have you experienced or seen this?
