Save Marriage – It Takes Two Hands To Clap!

You have been married to your spouse for many years and you love your partner very much. Most importantly, you love your children and do not want them to get hurt by having a set of divorced parents but can you really manage to save your marriage alone? It is definitely going to require a lot of effort on your part because it takes two hands to clap!

The good news is, you can persuade your spouse to take action if you really feel that there is something not right with your relationship. Your spouse might not even be aware of the drift and thus would be unwilling to take action. Or that there might already be a third party involved and your spouse cannot decide whom to stay committed to.

Regardless of which is the case with your marriage, the first important thing you can both do is to sit down and have a heart-to-heart talk. One vital point to take note is that your children should not be present so that both of you do not get distracted. You can arrange to leave your kids with the babysitter while you sort things out with your spouse.

Once you have succeeded in getting your spouse to sit down with you for a heart-to-heart talk, your next step is to have an open communication with each other. Remember to talk about how you feel and also to listen to your partner's views and opinions. Your needs and emotions are important and so are your partner's. It is only by having an open communication can both of you find out what has gone wrong with your marriage.

Very often, this open communication will get a lot of couples to get to know each other more and their next step is to spend more time together as well as to come to a compromise on how their differences can be resolved. If that is the case with your marriage, then going on a weekend getaway will greatly benefit your relationship. It has succeeded in helping couples rekindle their love and bring them closer together.

However, if the drift in the marriage has been too wide or that there is a third party involved, things might be more complicated. In the case of a distanced relationship, you can both make attempts at saving your relationship by spending more time together and to have more regular talks with each other to express your needs and emotions. In order to remain happily married, couples need to share a common goal and you can start by talking and reaffirming your goals as partners.

Triangular relationship problems are the hardest to resolve and you might both need some privacy time to help you sort things out. This could mean not seeing and talking to each other for a few days or even a couple of weeks if need be. However, do not stay separate for too long as that is not going to benefit your relationship. Take this time to think things through and decide if you still want to remain together.

If need be, you should consider seeking the help of a marriage counselor. You do not have to feel shy about expressing your problems to an outsider as it will be well worth the effort if it helps you to save your marriage. No matter what you decide to do, keep in mind that you need to get the cooperation of your marriage as it is unlikely that you can clap with only one hand!
