What Can I Do To Stop My Divorce?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Your wife has just asked for a divorce. More than anything in the world you want to make sure that doesn't happen. You love your wife and you know that she still loves you. You believe you just need to sit down together and work things out. You know you've hurt her in the past and are willing to change. But you don't know how to even get her to listen to what you have to say. What can you do to stop your divorce? You can't accept that your marriage is over or that it's too late for the two of you. What should your next move be?

It isn't enough to just stop your divorce though. You need to take action to save your marriage too. You have to be willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen. More importantly you need to convince your wife that you're willing to do that as well. If you can't make her believe that you're going to go the extra mile to make your marriage work then there is little you can do to stop your divorce because she's not going to be feeling it.

Once you make the decision that you want to pull things together and stop your divorce once and for all there are things you can do that will put you on more even footing with your wife. In fact, they may even get your wife to listen to you when she may not have been willing to before. The first thing you need to do is let your wife know how much you appreciate her. Tell her all the things you see now that she does for you to make your life easier and how empty and lonely your life will be without her in it. This alone may not be enough to save your marriage but it can at least get her to think about the possibility of making it work between the two of you.

The next step you need to take is to let your wife know how much you NEED her in your life. This goes beyond your appreciation of the things she does for you and digs deep into the fact that you believe you're a better man with her than you could ever be on your own. This will get her attention in a big way because more than anything in this world, your wife wants to feel like she's needed. She needs to be needed by you.

It's not a major personality overhaul. You don't have to sacrifice who you are or even really swallow your pride to get your wife's attention. But if you wait too long to do these things you'll be trying to get your ex back after the fact instead of trying to stop your divorce.
