Marriage Problems?

If you think that your marriage is in trouble then 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:

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

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

3)  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.  Don’t expect things to be perfect tomorrow but work toward small improvements each day.  Small but steady steps will get take you to a better place.

4)  Get the resources that you need.  Take a few moments to take thMyMarriageCoach quiz.  Iwill reveal the strengths & ‘weak spots’ in your marriage, generate your marriage score & help you get your hands on the resources that you need.  

5)  Don’t go it alone.  Turn to counselors, pastors, & good friends for help.  Decide who you can trust & then go together to talk through the issues, share your feelings, identify what needs to change then work to change it.  

You and your spouse may be in a difficult place right now but know that things can change. Remember that your relationship is worth fighting for.  With a clear plan, open communication, and work daily, it can get better.
