Let’s say that you’re one half of a happily married couple and that you’ll be married for 50 years before one of you passes into the great beyond.
In that 50 year time period, you will have been married 18,250 days. That’s 18,250 opportunities to make passionate love to your spouse. Now of those 18,250 opportunities, there will times when it just won’t be possible. There will be illness, menstrual cycles, business travel, and a host of other reasons. So let’s reduce our number by 25% to 13,688 opportunities. Still with me?
Now, there are going to be times when you’re just too tired, or you’ve had an argument, or a dozen other silly reasons for not loving your spouse. And let’s say those reasons have caused you to make love to your spouse no more than 2 days a week. Because of this, you have wasted 9,787 golden opportunities to cherish the love of your life. Over a period of 18,250 days, you have managed to make love to your spouse a grand total of 3,901 times and wasted 14,349 opportunities that you’ll never get back.
Then the day will come when one of you dies, statistically the husband. You will still sleep on your side of the bed. You will still maintain the same habits you have had for the last 50 years, but your spouse won’t be there. Then one day you’ll hear yourself say, “I wish I could hold him, kiss him, love him just one more time. I wish I hadn’t wasted all those opportunities.” Think about that the next time either one of you is just too tired, or just too busy, or it’s just not convenient.
