Has the thought of a marriage counselor or even divorce come across your mind lately? Here is an article that aims to be of help for troubled marriage. It may not save your marriage life entirely but could provide tips that will pinpoint your relationship into the right road. By applying these tips, your marriage could be on the way to reconciliation and recovery.

Loving your spouse is a decision. This may sound pretty basic but deciding to love your partner is the best initial thing you can do to save a marriage on the rocks. Do you feel like you’ve fallen out of love? Do your marital arguments and conflicts made you love your partner less? It may be hard in the beginning but learn to love your partner anyway. Love is not just a strong feeling or emotion. Love is indeed a decision to make. This decision won’t trap you into the chains of a loveless relationship. On the bright side, it allows your marriage to stir up the feelings you have for each other.

Learn the ‘art of forgiving and forgetting’. Forgiving may be the hardest part in settling conflicts, but is also vital in saving troubled marital relationships. If you think that your partner has in a way neglected your feelings or hurt you, learn to forgive and let it pass. There may be incidences where forgiveness is not the solution such as serial adultery or abuse. For these drastic situations, it would be best to find help and get out of the marriage immediately. If there is no abuse going on, be considerate on the fact that both of you are only humans and fallible. Both parties eventually make mistakes and have hurt the other in a way. Decide and learn in your heart to truly forgive without pretentions.

Express love in an everyday basis. As soon as you have decided to love your partner, express that firm decision. Know your spouse’s love language and express your love through gifts, touch and etc. Give your spouse a ten second kiss, a five second compliment and a twenty second hug daily.

Learn to communicate in your partner’s terms. More often than not, individuals always communicate based on their own terms and expect others to adjust. This selfish perspective is damaging to any marital relationship.
