A man and woman who have walked down the aisle with all the high hopes, and made a promise to stay married “’til death do us part” find it hard to imagine divorce. If they can remember what made them fall in love in the first place, they can save their marriage by using a few of these simple steps.
Married people need time together – without the cell phones, the television and the instant messenger. Spouses should sit down together and really listen to each other. A husband and wife must share their feelings, and they must listen – really listen – to each other.
A husband and wife can write each other love letters, and take the time to send a spouse a little reminder of the love a man or woman has for his mate. This can help people reconnect. Moreover, emphasizing each other’s significant best qualities can remind a person what made him or her fall in love in the first place.
Spouses should go out on dates. Many couples get so comfortable with each other – this means they get into a rut – that after being married for several years they stop dressing up for each other. A spouse can revitalize a marriage by planning a night out once a week when both spouses have no choice but to dress up. A new outfit can work wonders.
People should take care of themselves. A person who feels self-conscious about his or her body is probably going to project on his or her partner. An exercise program and a balanced diet help a person lose weight and become fit. Each partner can do something that makes the other person feel better.
A partner must be a priority. With work and kids demanding constant attention, it’s easy to ignore the other adult in the marriage.
Both spouses should take a moment every day and tell each other how important he or she is.
