Love never fails. It is patient, and endures all things, yet not gullible or naive.
There may be too many wounds; too much damage, and it seems impossible to get past the hurt.
But as a couple, you can decide to re-engage and reconnect in a deliberate and purposeful manner. It’s never easy, but it can be done if you want to. The following are some of the ways you can fight for your marriage.
Accept the things you cannot change
Accept that you cannot change your spouse, and rather focus on the one person you can change — you. Furthermore, you can’t change past experiences, decisions or remarks. But you can discover ways to process and reorient the past or make amends for any wrongs committed and move on.
Stop taking one another for granted
Express gratitude to one another. Say: “Thank you”, “I appreciate you”, “I’m sorry”, more often. Celebrate milestones by planning something special or out of the ordinary. Tell her how much it means to you that she cooks a great meal — or vice versa. Pay attention to the little things and act like someone who values your spouse and the relationship.
