There are guidelines to follow if you want to save your marriage. Marriage is more than just a game in life but nevertheless married couples enter the playing field with no practical experience or any idea of the rules.
Some couples master the rules faster than others. Some come to a decision they don’t like the game at all and call it a day. Others carry on playing the game even though they don’t like it and are not having any fun at all. They keep on rolling the dice hoping that their luck will change and the game will get better. Let’s have a look at 5 rules that can save your marriage.
1. Being Tolerant.
It’s easy to see the best in a person as long as they are doing what you like. But it is important to make the effort to not let little things irritate you. If your partner does something that does annoy you, don’t look at them as faults but as unique character qualities. Love the faults along with the benefits.
2. Be a Space Giver.
This means not only having separate wardrobes but allow each other much needed private time. Being with someone you love all the time is challenging. This applies to not only at home but with friends as well. Incidentally, with regards to the space in the wardrobes, keep yours tidy.
3. Go Away Together.
It’s tricky to find time to take a holiday in a busy marriage but you must do it. A change of surroundings can really save your marriage by reigniting the spark that may be fading. And memories can be the glue that keeps you stuck together while the other pressures of life try to pull you apart.
4. Compare Opinions. Don’t Argue.
Arguments will arise in any relationship but if you want to save your marriage be respectful of your partner’s opinion. If the argument gets heated and its late in the day, it may be best to go to bed and sleep on it. An old saying recommends that you to never go to bed angry but things generally look better in the morning. Never give an ultimatum unless you want it to be taken. Give consideration to your partner’s likes and dislikes and you’ll have fewer arguments.
5. Don’t Forget The Romance.
You don’t have to be newlyweds to experience romance and intimacy. One of the ways to improve a relationship is to remember what you did when you starting dating and do it again. You probably exchanged gifts, took walks and went out for romantic dinner dates. You may think you know everything about your partner and if that’s so, why aren’t they happy? Why aren’t you happy?
