Saving a Broken Marriage Tips
Figure Out What's Contributing to Your Troubled Marriage
Remember Why You Are Together
If your marriage is on the rocks, it could be because you have forgotten why you got together in the first place. What attracted you to your spouse? Whatever it was, it gave you a strong enough reason to make your marriage vows.
We all change over the years, but we basically stay the same at our core. Try to remember what it was all those years ago that attracted you to your partner. That person is still there, but you may have lost sight of them.
Spend Quality Together
Is it Time to Call it Quits?
Changing Values: Differences in core values can cause a rift in a relationship that may be impossible to bridge. Religion, core morality, life goals, and parenting styles may mean that going your separate ways is the best course of action if you cannot reconcile your differences.
Lack of Commitment: It takes two people to make a marriage work. If only one partner is committed to repairing it, resentment will grow and widen the rift.
Abuse: An abusive relationship is not a healthy one. If an abusive partner refuses to get help and continues to make empty promises, you are not in a safe place and may never be until you leave. While many issues in a relationship need time to repair, abuse is not one of them.
