Saving the Marriage and Making it Last

Aug 17, 2007
A marriage is a lifelong commitment. Its because two people have decided to love each other through the good times and bad, the triumphs and setbacks until it is time for both to leave this earth.

There will be some changes from being a boyfriend and girlfriend to being a husband and wife. Here are a few useful tips that may work to save the marriage rather than not doing anything and just letting it fall apart.

1. When two people decide to get married, there must always be honesty and trust between the spouses. This is because the person is not thinking how a situation may affect one but how this will also affect the other.

2. The person may not find someone who likes everything that the individual wants. Instead of trying to convince the other to change and fighting about it, the husband or wife should just keep an open mind so the partner will feel happy, appreciated and respected.

3. Aside from not liking everything, another thing the person has to contend with are the views of another regarding certain issues. Again, this will be another cause for conflict. Its best to just listen to what the other has to say and try to respect and understand the point of view of the other person.

4. The marriage may have been smooth sailing for the first few years. If the spouses become complacent, this could bring problems in the future.

The best way to save the marriage will be to do things out of the ordinary such as giving flowers from time to time for no reason at all or just doing something exciting like going on an adventure trip. This will prove to the other how special the person is which should not only happen during Christmas, birthdays or anniversaries.

5. There will be times that trivial things will turn into a major argument. This may take a few hours but the spouses should resolve this quickly. Both must always agree to make up before going to bed and never bringing the issue ever into the conversation again.

6. Another way to show love one will be to always tell others how proud one is of the other. This can be done by telling others the marvelous feats the spouse accomplished or simply by putting a picture in the office.

7. The couple should do things together. This can be as simple as doing the grocery together or having fun in a sport or hobby that both enjoy. The spouses can try learning something new together to make the two grow further.

8. Believe it or not, sex is a useful tool in saving a marriage. This allows the couple to get intimate and give pleasure to each other.

9. There will be some challenges that the two will not be able to face. When this happens, both must pray and ask for guidance and be thankful for the blessings and gifts that have been given.

Constant communication, spontaneity and faith are a few of the ingredients to save the marriage and make it work. The spouses must remember that the day after the wedding is the beginning of something beautiful and exciting that the two must work and strive together.
