Please know that although you might feel alone, frustrated and hurting there are people who care and things you can do to improve your marriage situation.

Marriage problems have been around since the beginning of time and can find themselves in the center of the marriage, regardless of how long you have been married. Don’t gauge how successful your marriage is based on your current marriage issues. It doesn’t help you in marriage to compare your situation to others. Of course, you can aspire to have a marriage that is healthy in communication, romance and commitment. However, if you are looking at other couples and their seemingly lack of problems in their marriage, you are probably being misguided. It will help your marriage to look within more than you look outside of your marriage.
So, what will benefit you the most in fixing your marriage problems? Probably taking a step back and revisiting what it will take to make you and your spouse happy will be helpful in moving beyond your marriage issues. I know this might seem obvious but believe me when I say that many couples skip this important step.
If you don’t take the time to figure out what’s really behind your marriage problems, and what you and your spouse wants out of your marriage, you will never be happy.
Who Doesn’t Have Marriage Problems?
As I mentioned above, marriage problems exist in every marriage. I guarantee you that no person or marriage is perfect. Just look around and you will be quickly reminded that marriage takes a lot of work and is often entered in under false pretenses. What you don’t want to do is live your life and your marriage based on a fairytale or Hollywood perception of marriage.
Please don’t get me wrong in thinking that your marriage or marriages in general are doomed to fail because they will all have marriage problems. What I’m simply saying is that every marriage has its challenges so don’t let them frustrate you to the point of wanting to give up on your spouse. In addition, don’t be deceived into thinking that other couples have the kind of marriage you desire and thus since your marriage is broken it will always be broken. The question for you is….
What Are You Prepared To Do To Help With Marriage Problems?
Now that you are convinced that your marriage problems are normal and that they will not be with you forever, what are you prepared to do?
Are you willing to set aside some time to focus on fixing your marriage? I don’t mean those times when you are trying to change your partner into someone you want them to be. I also don’t mean the time you spend beating your spouse over the head for his or her faults or mistakes.
Are you willing to truly forgive past wrongs and begin moving forward together as you work on fixing your marriage problems?
Can you tolerate giving unconditional love even when you don’t feel like it or think your spouse has earned that kind of love?
Please remember that you can create the change and spark that is needed to help in resolving your marriage problems. Don’t let fear, doubt and pride get in the way of you finding a way to improve or turn around your marriage.
