The Key To Save A Marriage Is Commitment
The Key to Save a Marriage Is Commitment, Not Feelings of Love
Many couples struggle through marital problems for years before finding a resolution. Sometimes this means divorce, other times it means that they have finally found a way to bring peace back into the relationship. But how do you know when it is too late to save a marriage?
There is no easy answer to that question, and there is no one answer that is right for every couple. As mentioned above, some couples struggle for years, but are then able to stay together and be happy.
When trying to save a marriage, a common problem is that one or both partners just throw their hands up and quit when things are not what they expected them or wanted them to be.
There is no way to save a marriage unless both parties are working to do just that. It doesn’t matter as much what the issues in the marriage are as much as it matters what both the husband and the wife are willing to do to fix it.
Many times pride and bitterness stop the husband or wife from being willing to reach out in any meaningful way. This usually results in the person just shutting down while relying on their partner to do 100% of the work to fix the problem.
Even if the other person is totally to blame for the issues in the marriage, it still takes both partners to fix it. Some would complain that it’s not fair that they should have to work to fix what they didn’t break. While it might not be fair, that person needs to figure out if they are willing to throw their marriage away over an issue of pride.
Sometimes all it takes to save a marriage is a little effort from each party. That doesn’t mean that the marriage will be fixed overnight, but each little act of kindness, respect and thoughtfulness will build on each other.
One day, the husband and wife will realize that they are once again in love with their spouse.
Again, depending on what caused the problem and other factors, it could take years to get past the issue. But it is never too late to save a marriage as long as both partners are willing to continue to try.
Even when you might feel desperate and the situation might seem hopeless, it is never too late. There are plenty of stories from couples that have made it through some fiery trials of infidelity, dishonesty and broken trust.
They will tell you that they thought there was no way to save their marriage, but they just weren’t willing to throw it all away. They stayed and, even when it didn’t feel good, they kept trying. Today, many of those couples are happier than they ever were and they now know that together they can weather any storm.
Sometimes what it takes to save a marriage is simply realizing that it’s not always about feelings of love and passion. Sometimes, it’s just about the commitment that you made to stay together through good times and bad.
If there is any part of each of you that wants to make it work, then it is not too late.
