Every marriage goes through rough times. But unfortunately for some, these rough patches seem to never end and the marriage looks like a failed one. However, don’t call the divorce attorney yet. There are several things that you can do to save a failing marriage. In this article, we’ll teach you how to save a failing marriage. Let’s begin.

Keep in mind that many marriages are savable. After all, there was something that attracted you to your spouse in the first place, and they are still the same person that they were before you married them. To rekindle the love, think about the qualities in your spouse that you love about them (it would be recommended that your spouse does the same thing). If needed, write down those qualities on a piece of paper. This simple activiity will help you remember why you are married to this person in the first place. This could be the spark you needed to help save your failing marriage.

Work on problems. Conversely, you should also think about all of the problems in your marriage. This may seem counter-productive since you might think that thinking and talking about your problems will just cause more arguments, but it is not. Instead, think about the problems and then talk about these problems with your spouse. You may just find that  there were many minor misunderstandings that were blown way out of proportion and the problems that seem major are really not.

Act lovey dovey. If that does not work, act like you are boyfriend and girlfriend again, just starting your relationship. Go out on a romantic date together. Spend time together n a romantic way so that the two of you fall in love again. Treat your partner as if they were the best thing since sliced peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

See a marital counselor. If all else fails, don’t be afraid to see a marriage counselor. They have their jobs for a reason, and have saved marriages before…it is possible that they can do the same for your relationship. Hopefully this gave you some advice on how to save your failing marriage if you are going through a tough time.
