Is my marriage in trouble? It may not be. Here are some things that may help if you think your marriage is in trouble.

If you think that your marriage is in trouble then it probably is and it’s time to get help. So what do you do? While there are no magical formulas there are certain steps that you can take that will lead you in the right direction. Here are a few things that you can do immediately:  ways to tell if your marriage is in trouble

1) Remember that your marriage is worth fighting for. Decide to do whatever it takes to strengthen it.

2) Be intentional. Don’t just hope that things will get better. Develop a plan to improve things and follow it.

3) Commit to open and honest communication. Always try to begin with positive statements about what you love about your spouse. Let him/her know how you feel but steer clear of jabs, name calling, and flinging comments only to inflict pain and hurt.

5) Focus on making things better each day. Know that it will take time to restore and strengthen your marriage but you can turn things around.

6) Don’t go it alone. Pull others that you trust into the conversation (i.e, counselors, pastors, or good friends). Decide who you can talk to then go together to talk through the issues, express your feelings, get good marriage advice, and develop a plan to strengthen your relationship.

Most importantly, know that you can do this. You and your spouse may be in a difficult place right now and you may feel like your marriage is in trouble but know that things can change.
