I’ve driven old cars since I turned sixteen, so I’ve always paid close attention to the Warning Lights on the dashboard, because I’ve learned the hard way that ignoring the warning could mean being stranded in a broken car on the side of the road. The Warning Light isn’t a sign to panic; it’s just a reminder that an adjustment needs to be made under the hood or else eventually, the problem could become an emergency.
I’ve met with so many couples over the years who have ignored the “Warning Lights” that their marriage was in trouble and didn’t acknowledge the issues until those issues had evolved into a full-blown emergency or even a divorce. A key to strengthening (or even saving) a marriage is to address issues early and aggressively.
There are many indicators that can signify a issue is brewing that needs to be addressed in your relationship. If any of these “Warning Lights” pop up in your marriage, take quick action to resolve them and you’ll be saving yourself and your spouse a lot of unnecessary heartache down the road.

All couples go through “seasons” of busyness or exhaustion (usually with small kids) where their Sex Life takes a backseat, but sex needs to be a consistent priority to keep the intimacy alive in a marriage. Without it, everything else will usually unravel. If you find yourself making excuses why you don’t do it very often, that’s a warning light.
