Don’t Stop The Fire From Burning And Learn How To Save Your Marriage
Put An Effort To Save Your Marriage
If you are like almost every other married couple and are having marriage difficulties, do not give up hope. You are not the first couple nor will you be the last to be hitting a road bump in your marriage. The most important thing to realize is that any marriage can be saved as long as both parties are willing to put in the effort and agree to work things out.
The lines of communication that may have broken down must be addressed first because without speaking to each other, nothing will get resolved. You can try to bring in a close friend or family member to help talk you through the difficulties however this person has to be trusted to keep what is said to themselves. This might be extremely difficult if there are family secrets or embarrassing things you want to keep under wraps. If this applies to your situation, I’d recommend seeing a professional either a marriage counselor or a religious figure trained in how to handle these matters. Having a non partisan third party to get each of you talking without making a judgement on who is right and who is wrong, might be just the thing necessary to get you both talking again.
Once you have reestablished your lines of communication and are back on speaking terms, you will need to discuss the reasons why you have drifted so far apart in the first place. This can be the most challenging part of the process because each of you might still be angry at the other for both real and imagined slights. Once again, this is where a well trained professional in marriage counseling can be your best asset. They can keep both of you focused on talking out your differences while at the same time keeping you from fighting due to bruised egos, the bringing up of past arguments and outright meanness.
Once you are talking and focusing on improving your relationship in a positive manner, you can move to the next and most enjoyable level. This is where you rediscover why you got married in the first place. The little things that used to excite you and keep you happy during the honeymoon stage. You can use your imagination and come up with all kinds of interesting and exciting ways to reignite the flame in your marriage.
Have Some Quality Time Together
Try going on a weekend getaway, or to a little hidden bed and breakfast with just the two of you, no kids. Maybe a quick flight to a sunny tropical island for some good old fashioned romance, fun in the sun and lounging on the beach. Whatever you decide, just remember to be as spontaneous as possible and try to enjoy this time of renewed romance. Since you are both in this together and have agreed to work on your marriage it is in both your best interests to give it all you’ve got.
If you do, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed as a marriage should never be taken lightly and is certainly worth the extra effort of saving.
