So my girlfriend of two years move back home six

Customer Question

So my girlfriend of two years move back home for school six months ago. She wanted me to come with her. But i had to stay back to help my family. Well all is good here an i have taken a career. That we talk about for me to move there an take the next step together. Being getting a house together. Since she has been home her school/work/Family life has been very stress full. To the point we only got to speak breifly on the phone When she was going to or from work. So she has gone to her sisters which is six hours further away for a few months to find her self. Wanting to take a break from everything including us.. I am heart broken over this. So I am at a total loss here an have no idea what to make off this. She asked that we dont speak. I have txt a few times an we talked last week. the first time in almost a month. I am hopeing for the best but i just feel like i am fooling my self.

I'm just not sure what to do. I want to give her space. But I know myself the distance has been a strain. This girl literally jumped out of a plane with me! Climb mountains an played in a ocean together.

Hello, I am reading your question now,
Expert:  PATRICIA replied 2 years ago.
Hello, I am sorry you are going through this in your relationship. It seems like she is needing some time to think. I would suggest that you be there for her as a friend, but prepare yourself to move on. A relationship has to be 50/50. It will not work if one person is not putting an equal amount into the relationship. Some people come into our lives just for a little while. God sends people to teach us things, and those people are not meant to be there for a lifetime, but just for a season. For example, some people may be in our lives so that we can learn how to appreciate, or how to truly love, or how to be patient, and be a better person. No matter what happens, it will all work out for God’s glory. You may not be able to see it at this moment, but you will send the end result, and you will be able to look back and realize what his plan was all along. He could be building you up to be a better person, or to allow her to be a better person. Trust in God, and he will lead you. Be there for her, because you don’t know what she is struggling with. In time, it will all work out for the best. We all want what we want, but it may not be what God wants.
Thank you for choosing JustAnswer, God Bless!!

Hello, I am sorry you are going through some problems, but it is a blessing that you are on the right path with God’s word.The bible is clear that a man is to be the head of his own home. The wife is to be obedient to the husband. Ephesians 5:23 says, for the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church, and he is the savior of the body.1st Peter 3:1 says Likewise, ye wives be in subjection to your own husbands.Titus 2:5 says to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.1st Timothy 5:14-15 says I will therefore that the younger women, marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. For some are already turned aside after Satan. 1st Corinthians 7:3 says let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence, and likewise also the wife unto the husband. You must come into an agreement. Do not let money be the root of your problems, because God says he will be your provider. He says in his commandments, not to have another God. He is a jealous God, and if are you putting money first, that is not what God wants. You have to put him first in your life. God has to be first before your wife, because your family, before everything. If you humble yourself to God, he will put all of your problems, under your feet. Your marriage will prosper, and you will give him the glory. Ask God for guidance, how you should handle the arrangement of paying the bills, and saving money. He will guide you, and he can speak to your wife as well. Trust in God, and he will lead you. The righteous have never been forsaken. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. God Bless,
