How My Hearing Loss Has Affected My Marriage
Most marriages are hard, but we had to re-learn how to communicate altogether.
BY SHARI EBERTS
When I got married, I didn’t realize that one day I would no longer be able to hear what my husband was saying—literally.
If my hearing loss happened while we were dating, would we have chosen one another? I hope so, because we have had our fair share of wonderful moments—including the birth of two beloved children—but I can’t say the thought hasn’t crossed my mind once or twice, particularly when we are tired and stressed and his weary mumblings are even harder for me to hear than usual.
