Ending a marriage is not an easy situation to sail through and hence many couples who file for it, somewhere deep down are willing to make it work somehow. someone needs to do a pep talk and things might just turn the unexpected way.
If you are also facing this deep-rooted dilemma and want to save your marriage, start putting in the effort and you can surely do it. Here are ways you can strengthen the bond and give it a shot one last time.
It is very important to reflect on everything from scratch if you wish to take steps to save your marriage. This means, you need to write down how you started as a couple, what attracted you to your partner, where you both are now, how you got this far and where you want to be. Think of how you’d want to work your marriage by first knowing what it should look like.
If you read somewhere that your partner doesn’t have to complete you, it’s true. It’s you who should be complete in order to not burden your partner or the relationship. Think of why do you have to rely on your partner to make you happy? And start doing things for yourself that can keep you happy.
When two people spend a lot of time together in a marriage, they start thinking that they know each other in and out. They make assumptions about the other person’s motivations and thought process and then get upset over these assumptions. Commit to stopping these assumptions and focus more on communicating things out to genuinely get to know each other.
Every marriage must have mutual respect and trust for each other. If these two things are lacking, you need to put more effort to strengthen them. In order to minimize getting mad at each other, draw some rules and start making constructive conversations. Set some ground rules like never to use swear words while in a fight or never take a fight to bed. Small rules like these go a long way.
Have you both lost the feeling of each other’s touch lately? Physical intimacy doesn’t always have to mean having sex. But a soft rub on the back, a hug, a peck on the cheek will do the magic. These touches will deliver a rush of pleasure and boost the romantic bonds bringing back the intimacy that might be missing.
