The key to keeping your marriage strong is love and compassion, but is there really more to it than just that? Actually, saving a marriage is much harder than trying to save a friendship. There are some things that you should be considerate of and today, we will help you learn more about this delicate subject. Here are smart ways in which you can stop your marriage from falling apart.
Take a break to clear your thoughts
We all need moments of silence in which we can simply take a moment to relax and put our thoughts in order. Use this precious time to analyze all these things that led to the deterioration of the marriage. Put all the good things and bad things into balance and draw a line to see if there are more good things than bad things that happened in your life and then try to do everything possible to save your marriage.
Don’t blame your partner
Get rid of all the name-calling, finger pointing and shaming because it can rapidly lead to a divorce. It’s very easy to complain and blame other people for what they’ve done, but before blaming your partner, take a moment to think about the cause of the argument. Maybe you did or said something along the way that your partner took as an offence and didn’t realize it back then. After all it only takes a spark to light a fire. Take some time to apologize or talk in a calm and soothing tone and try to explain what bothers you or what did bother you at the time without getting angry and raising your voice.
The best way to detox your marriage and reinforce positive behavior is by expressing appreciations. Whether you have been married for an year, 10 years or 20 years, make a set time once a day to say what you like about your partner. Say something like “I like how your hair looks today” or thank them for preparing a meal, cleaning the house or simply taking the thrash out. It will make them feel appreciated and loved.
Other than expressing a simple “thank you” or a nice compliment, demonstrate your care for your partner by taking them on a date once a week or offering then a nice gift. A beautiful red rose or a perfume can be a thoughtful gift. You can even take it a step further and make a DIY project based on the preferences of your spouse.
