Resolving Your Difficult Marriage Problems

May 23, 2008
While it is true that not all marriage problems can be solved, but many can. As recently as a few generations ago, divorce was not considered a viable option for most people. Even today, there are religious groups who consider divorce unacceptable except in the event of certain extenuating circumstances - such as abuse or adultery. That point of view is not for everyone, but it is undeniable that marriage problems are put into a different perspective when there is no real choice but to solve them.

That having been said, it probably wasn't a good thing for individuals to feel that they were 'stuck' in a marriage - that they had no choice regarding whether to continue with the union. We are fortunate that we live in a time when people have choices regarding the direction of their lives and futures.

Regarding marriage problems, though, it is clearly better to solve them first if this can be done, particularly if there are children in the picture as they sometimes, are the ones who get effected the most. Marriage problems vary in type and severity, but there's one thing that many if not most have in common; most marriage problems, and their resolutions, depend on good communication. Communication is the biggest key to all effective relationships.

Communication styles vary greatly, but presumably married couples are drawn together in the first place because there is a basic similarity or compatability and deep understanding between their unique communication styles. It takes time to maintain and develop communication. Many marriage counselors recommend that couples should have or create a weekly 'date' with one another in private, a time when there is a break from the regular routine and the couple do something relaxed and enjoyable together and talk about any issues they feel they might have with the relationship.

After there are children brought into the picture, the weekly date can become more difficult to maintain, but it is actually more important than ever. Many couples tend to become too busy to spend time with each other alone once there are children. If you stop and think about it, though - isn't it worth your while and effort to take the time to ensure that your child's parents have a good and happy marriage, and are able to provide a stable and loving environment and home? Parents that are happy together tend to generally have happier children, too.

Almost all marriage problems, large or small, can be one of the great challenges in a persons life. When dealt with head on, however, they need not get out of hand - in fact, dealing with these challenges as they arise can be very rewarding and a great learning experience for both parties and can prevent unessecary headaches in the future. It can even help to strengthen and enhance your marriage in the long run, and that means that your overall quality of life and that of your partners and even children can benefit greatly as well.
