Marriage issues are unavoidable. However, you have options and choices regarding how you handle your marital issues. Life is all about choices from the infancy stage to the grave. Some choices we make help us on with our journey and others hurt us. Many of the choices we make are wise and others are downright borderline stupidity. I’m sure you can agree with me that marriage also is about choices. How we choose to deal with our marriage problems either gets us closer to a blissful marriage or pushes us closer to divorce.
One of the tips to help with marriage issues is for you to be patient and pleasant. It’s important that you don’t let your frustration turn you into a crabby impatient nitpicking spouse. I know it’s difficult when your marriage is struggling. However, the more unapproachable you are the less likely your spouse will seek to reconcile with you.
You don’t want your spouse to have to walk on egg shells and pretend as though you are non-existent. I’m not suggesting that you pretend to be happy and delighted with your marital issues. However, if your spouse dreads any conversations about your marriage because you get nasty and come across as bitter, your marriage struggles will continue to grow.
Try being a little more pleasant to be around and watch as your spouse slowly begin to draw closer to you.
Another thing you should consider is respecting your spouse, if you haven’t done so up to now. It’s so easy to lose respect for your spouse when your heart is turning cold towards that person. I know when you are angry it’s natural to say things that you wish you had never said. You might even dismiss your spouse’s thoughts or feelings.
Please keep in-mind that we all have a bit of pride and being disrespected in some cases forces even greater distance between couples. In many instances one thing leads to another and before you know it you are destroying each others lives.
Marriage issues are unfortunately common these days and cannot be avoided. However, marital problems should not control your joy, peace and happiness. Make your home peaceful and respectful and your marriage should reflect that as well.
Make sure you treat your spouse like you want to be treated. You can overcome your marriage issues with the spouse’s help. I’m hoping and praying that you and your spouse work through your marriage issues.
