Welcome to The HookahAffair
Hey! Thank you for checking out TheHookahAffair.com. You may be wondering what this is all about so let us explain.
We have been married for over 18 years. Things were great, or at least we would have said they were great, for the first 13 years. But about three years ago our marriage hit a brick wall and hit it hard!
We have seen a destructive tendency for married couples to quickly go from everything is fine to we’re getting a divorce! We are convinced that is caused, in part, by the lack of honesty regarding our marriages, distorted expectations and a whole lot of baggage from our childhoods. Perhaps we are all too prideful to be honest about how we are REALLY doing. Or maybe it is a natural fear of vulnerability.
Regardless of the reason, it can be scary to talk about what’s really going on in our homes!
We know that many of our homes are battle-grounds for struggling marriages. We know that because our home was just like that for several years.
This site is a result of our desire to talk honestly about marriage — the good, the bad and especially, the ugly.
We write about our struggles and the things we have learned and continue to learn about working through those struggles. So, while we may write specifically about our marriage, we know that there is “nothing new under the sun” (Ecc 1:9) and we aren’t alone with our problems. And guess what —
You aren’t alone either!
It is our HOPE and prayer that God uses us to generate some honest conversations and thoughts about where you are in your marriage or relationship so that you can avoid some of the awful things we have gone through in our marriage.
We have spent hundreds of hours in therapy and hopefully we can not only help you steer clear of some of the pitfalls we have experienced but we can also save you a small fortune on marriage therapy!
We want to see your marriages thrive (God’s way) because we know that when your marriage is strong, it will impact your children and generations to follow.
