DivorceIn most cases, when problems arise in a marriage they think of divorce as the only solution. This is so sad because a marriage is a scared union. Hence, it is not supposed to be broken. When problems arise, they should be faced and solved. Running away from them is not the solution.  A divorce or legal separation is not the answer either. Don’t quit your marriage when everything seems to be so difficult.

What could be done to stop a divorce and save your marriage? Let’s talk about some tips on how to stop a marriage from happening. The following tips could turn the tide in your favor.

  • Ask for forgiveness. That’s the first thing that you have to do. You cannot save your marriage if your spouse cannot forgive and accept you once again.
  • Listen to our spouse. Pay attention to every single thing he/ she says.
  • Give your partner reassurance. Promise your spouse that you will never do the same mistakes again and that you will avoid doing the things that would hurt him/ her. When you do this, you should not break it so that you can gain the trust once again.
  • Express how much you treasure your spouse. Say the three magical words over and over again. Saying I love you every now and then could increase your chance to save your marriage. On the other hand, it isn’t enough to say you love your spouse. It should be seen on your actions.
  • Don’t pressure your spouse. It is annoying when you try to pressure your partner.
  • Agree with your partner’s negative feelings. Agreeing with someone rather than being defensive can be disarming. Try to do some reverse psychology.
  • Stop fighting with your spouse.
  • Lighten up for a while. If you feel so tired talking with your spouse because it seems to be hopeless, then you need some time alone and reflect. Find the things about you that created your marital problems.

You need to make a compromise with your spouse to prevent divorce from happening. Be willing to do anything to strengthen your relationship. Ask your spouse to give your marriage a second chance. Make the love sweeter.
