Two Steps to Save a Marriage
Marriage is viewed either as an obligation that legally ties you to a person, or as a symbol of love that encourages you to stay committed and love your spouse until you decease. The people who look at their marriage like an obligation are less likely to succeed in their marriage, because they approach their marriage almost as if it’s a business agreement. However, the people who look at their marriage as a symbol of love will outlast any problems their marriage faces.
Many people have a hard time identifying what true love is. This is a sad but true fact, because it is from love that marriages get the necessary nourishment it needs to last a long time. So when the love begins to fade so will your marriage.
Fortunately there are ways you can bring the love your once shared with your partner back to life. Here a couple steps you can take to help you make the transition from a love less marriage to a marriage filled with love, which ultimately will lead to a long lasting relationship.
1. Stop Blackmailing
When attempting to save a marriage many people look for the easiest solution, which yields a short term solution. Blackmailing usually leads to resentment that will further damage a marriage. Blackmailing is also used as a tactic to attack a person’s vulnerabilities. Your partner trusted you enough to let you know their vulnerabilities in the first place, don’t use it against them.
2. Nurture Your Relationship
If you do nothing to nurture a plant it will eventually die and wither away. The same is true for a marriage, in order for it to be successful and to have longevity, you have to nurture it. Find ways to continue to grow as couple and your bond for each other will grow accordingly.
