Entrepreneurship and Marriage: How to Have it All

Posted On October 22, 2021 | By Cheri Timko

You need help. It’s hard for you to ask for help but you do it. You are clear about what needs to be done and why. You trust your spouse. So, you hand the task off. Later, you check on the progress and feel dismayed and disappointed to realize that they left a disaster.

You searched long and hard for your spouse. Once you found them, you want the relationship to stay strong through whatever life throws at you. You believe that being together makes your lives better. You have a built in, guaranteed support system. You want your partner to know you so well that you don’t even have to tell them what you need.

After we commit to our relationships, most couples stop spending much time together. After all, we are all busy with jobs, kids, family responsibilities, and hobbies. The typical couple spends an average of 2 1/2 hours together a day. However, they don't spend a lot of that time engaging with one another.

Running your own business can be a great alternative to having a traditional job. It can give you tremendous personal freedom. It also can feel stifling and overwhelming. Hard or easy, being an entrepreneur creates unique challenges for your relationship.

You Messed Up in your Relationship? Tips to Recover

When we imagine true love, we generally think of uninterrupted bliss. Of being with someone who knows us completely, inside and out. Of soul mates. This is an aspect of true love. True love also includes heart break, disappointment, sadness, and loneliness. These are inevitable and expected. A relationship joins two people, not robots or idealized versions of ourselves.

When a partner is in recovery as part of their addiction, you might feel disconnected from them. In a lot of ways, they have a whole separate life. They have meetings with people you don’t know. And there are parts of the treatment that they can’t talk about.

You want a fulfilling and satisfying relationship. Otherwise, what's the point of being in a relationship. Or, at least, you did before the marriage doldrums set in. You know, where you became complacent and accepted that this is as good as it gets.

We don’t expect our partners to be perfect.  We know that they are busy.  Naturally, they will miss opportunities to connect.  We know that we won’t get it right every time either.  So, how do these little things become such big things in relationships?

The Pandemic was stressful. For EVERYONE. Really, no one was spared from some difficulty. Yet, what we each faced was a unique experience. There was no universal set of circumstances. In fact, many of us experienced opposite effects. Some of us were hard hit financially, while others did better than usual. Some of us had lots of free time, while others had almost none.

“If my girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife/lover ever cheated on me, I would be gone so fast!!!” I have heard some variety of this statement so many times.  Having sat with many couples as they worked through affair recovery, what I think they mean to say is: “Don’t cheat on me. EVER!  I mean it!  It would totally destroy me and put me in an impossible situation."

When we picture our marriage, usually we imagine both partners being equally invested. Each person seeks out the other, says complimentary things, and does nice things to make the other person’s life better. In real life, that fairness often fades after the spark of newness wears off. Then we get to see who that person really is.

You meet that one special person. You fell in love. Everything feels special and intense and exciting and comfortable. You are the center of their world and they, yours. Then things shifted. Life came crowding in. You didn’t have as much time to do the fun things that brought you together. There was not as much time to talk or gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes.
