Since the day I have chosen my advocacy to be of assistance to fellow Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) here in Kuwait, I have been receiving quite a serious number of marital problems from fellow OFWs, seeking solution and needing understanding.
How sad it is to see the truth of many married migrant couples having marital problems due to distance apart and physical absence. From my inbox I read different situations but the bottom line is – weakness to passion, infidelity and worst, falling out of love. The situation become complex when children are involved.
I may not have enough experience to advise migrant couples with their problems but I am willing to share what I think may be helpful. Pray and seek Divine Guidance to walk through any kind of situation. Think of the good memories you had as a couple, as a family. Remember how you built your family dreams and for one of you to work overseas must be a test of your faithfulness to each other no matter the distance. Establish trust with one another and for both of you to uphold that trust and repay it with nothing but love and goodness.
Marriage is sacred and holy.
