3 Ways to Save Your Marriage

Updated on November 1, 2017

It is alarming how divorce has become the preferred solution for most struggling couples. But does divorce really offer a solution to relationship dysfunctions? The good news is that you can work through the biggest challenges if the problems are addressed. Before you split with your partner, try out the following ways to save your marriage and you might cuddle again!

Listen to each other’s concerns

When couples stop sharing thoughts with each other, they weaken their chord of connection hence each party should openly express their concerns. Know what makes your marriage feel broken. Did one of you cheat? Or life has had a toll on you? List down these issues and together resolve them.

Back to the basics

You and your partner have great traits that attracted you to one another. It is possible to lose sight of these hence the need to remind yourself of the good times you had when you just fell in love. Do what made both of you happy. Affection breeds affection.

Iron sharpens iron

Ever heard the phrase, “who informs you forms you?” Stay around people enjoying marriage, who have overcome the same struggles you are going through and you will learn a lot that you can practically apply and save your marriage.

In conclusion, marriage isn’t merely a fairy tale but work. Struggles in marriage are normal hence the need for lasting solutions. Get your marriage back on track and enjoy the happy ever after.

      " But does divorce really offer a solution to relationship dysfunctions?" Oftentimes it does!

      Each of us (chooses) our own friends, lovers, and spouse.

      Human beings make mistakes in (all areas of life) including choosing their boyfriends/girlfriends and wives/husbands. Naturally if this were not true we'd all be married to our "first loves" or high school sweethearts!

      A divorce is a public admission that a (mistake) was made.

      There are people who say "divorce is the (easy) way out". However odds are they've never (gone through) a divorce.

      It's a lot (easier) to get married!

      There are three basic reasons why couples get divorced.

      1. They chose the wrong mate. (They're too incompatible.)

      2. A "deal breaker" was committed in the eyes of the other.

      3. They fell out of love/stopped wanting the same things.

      The reality is it takes two people to make a marriage work but only (one person) to end it. You can't save a marriage alone.

      If your spouse wants out then he/she is not "the one" for you. In order for him/her to be "the one" they would have to see (you) as being "the one". At the very least a "soulmate" is someone who actually wants to be with you! (And vice versa)

      "Never love anyone who treats you like you're ordinary."

      - Oscar Wilde
