My 5 Step Plan to Save My Marriage

Save My MarriageSaving your marriage is one thing that you should do not just for yourself, but more importantly for your children. A broken marriage can have a horrendous impact on the children, and this may also affect their future and their perspectives on life. Above all, if your marriage is so important to you then you should by all means do something to save it. If you have no idea where to begin with then you can follow my 5 step plan to save my marriage. 

Spend Time Out Together Alone

Your busy lifestyle can take a toll on your marriage; you seldom spend time together alone on a date like you used to when you were still lovers. In some cases, you always go out as a family that you no longer take the time to be alone as a couple.

While having a lot of family time is good, it is also important to keep your love for each other continuously burning by setting aside some time together away from the distractions of the children. There are personal matters that you have to talk about as a couple, and it is also important to get updates about each others lives. During these times, focus more on sharing thoughts and ideas while avoid talking about family issues and financial matters.

Make Time for Yourself

If spending time as a couple is important, it is similarly essential to make some time for yourself; don’t refrain your spouse from taking the time off with friends, you should do the same too. If the two of you are always together in various facets in life except work, the tendency is you will become silent during your dinner dates because you have no more topics left to talk about.

But if you have some time with your friends or with your close associates, then you will have many things to share with your spouse during your dinner dates. Your relationship with your partner will be further enhanced if you constantly engage with each other in active and cheerful conversation about your individual experiences and thoughts.

Establish Open Communication and Complete Transparency

Open communication founded on complete transparency is vital in a marriage. Once the communication lines are cut off, doubts and jealousy will start to set in and ruin your marriage relationship. So make sure that you constantly communicate with each other, and observe complete transparency during your conversations. This will help maintain or further strengthen your trust to one another.

Show Your Affections to one Another

One of the main causes of a failed marriage is lack of affection and lack of attention. Over time, people will change and so too is the affection towards one’s spouse. If your spouse is used to your affectionate treatment during the early years in marriage and you are no longer showing that today then don’t be surprised if you feel the same way too.

Oftentimes, you just assume that your spouse already knows the extent of your love, notwithstanding the importance of showing your caring behavior and affection. Even saying the three magic words ‘I love You’ is already enough to show your love for your spouse. So keep on saying that to each other even if you already know that.

Visit a Marriage Counselor

Do things first on your own to save your marriage by following my 5 step plan to save my marriage, but if all else fails then it is time to visit a marriage counselor to seek further help and to get professional advices from experts. If you and your spouse are already on separate ways and you want to get your ex back to patch up your marriage then you have to change your strategies to win back your ex. Winning your ex back is more challenging, but you can avoid doing this if you are able to save your marriage once you observe the signs that show that your marriage is going down.
