Three Ways to Save Your Marriage Now!

Three easy ways to put your marriage back on track now.

Three Ways to Save Your Marriage

One of the main reasons couples see a therapist for couples counseling or marriage therapy is because they are looking for answers about how to fix their marriage or relationship. Sometimes they have just fallen into a rut, have lost connection with each other, or they might not even be sure what is going on; They only know something is wrong. I am sure you have heard the saying that marriage takes a lot of work and for the most part, that saying is absolutely true. It definitely isn’t always easy to find ways to keep a relationship happy, fun, or satisfying. No one provides a handbook the day you get married that has all the secrets in there on how to keep things going great long after the honeymoon. If you can implement a few simple strategies from the get-go, your chances of maintaining a healthy marriage on a consistent basis increases ten-fold.

Three steps to staying connected.

Three Ways to Save Your Marriage
  1. Take five minutes out of your daily routine to put your partner’s needs first and make them a priority. Do you remember back when you first fell in love and the first thing on your mind when you woke up everyday was your partner? When you were falling in love, your first priority was to make sure the other person was happy in some way, to see them smile, or to be able to have some contact with them. Continuing to ensure that your partners needs are on your top priority list is an act that should not be forgotten just because life gets busy. All it really requires is for you to add them to your morning mental check list. Maybe the action you take is something as simple as starting the day out by saying “Don’t forget I love you,” or goes a step further by fixing their morning cup of coffee. Small thoughts lead to big gestures and if you can do this step daily you will be sure to see the same returned to you.
  2. Find a way to connect physically on a daily basis. When you were first falling in love, touching your partner was high on your list of needs. In the beginning, anytime you were with your partner, or away from them, you had a strong desire to be close to them. All those great love hormones that are surging at the early stage of a relationship can account for a lot of that. Touch comes naturally and easily in new relationships, but as life gets busy, we often begin to lose the sense of urgency to touch our partners. Successful couples that maintain high levels of intimacy will tell you that finding time every day to embrace, touch, cuddle, hug, or kiss one another is an act of bonding. This can be done by holding hands at night in bed, hugging your spouse before they leave for work, or doing a quick shoulder rub as you walk by them in the evening. Any simple act of physical contact releases the same love hormones surging in the beginning, even momentarily, and helps our brains and bodies remain connected with those we love.
