The Inoculation Against MADD

Backs of Couple Reading the Bible“Marriage should be honored by everyone…” (Hebrews 13:4).

Many marriages suffer from MADD (Marriage Attention Deficit Disorder). When we are honoring our marriage like scripture calls us to do, we are giving our marriage the attention that it deserves.  The cure for MADD is DPT. Not a diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus shot, but shots of DPT (Daily Predictable Time).

Daily predictable time for a husband and wife is action that builds your emotional connection (read friendship), spiritual connection, and physical connection.  Twenty minutes together for DPT is what you need. If you don’t have time for that, you are too busy – and you are neglecting the most important human relationship you have.

Try these. For your emotional connection, each of you secretly write down a random noun on a piece of paper. Then reveal your words and do a YouTube search with the word combination.  You are bound to laugh a little.  For your spiritual connection, go to and follow the links to the couple’s devotional. Read one and tell each other what you get from it.  Finally, for your spiritual connection, enjoy a 30 second hug and a 10 second kiss with each other.

Twenty minutes to do three things that will inoculate your marriage against MADD.  Go do it!
