You have decided you need to learn to save a failing marriage, namely yours. Whether your husband or wife is with you or not, you shouldn't really bother. It only takes one person to save a failing marriage, but you've got to be smart about it. Here's what the marriage help experts say you need to do...
1. Spend time together
Whatever your situation, if you don't spend quality time together, your marriage is doomed. You need time together to talk about everyday things, to share the experiences you had today, to express your fears and anxieties. The time you spend together is the bonding glue that will keep the marriage intact.
2. Start communicating again
When I say "communicate", I mean real communication. You both must say what's on your mind, honestly and openly. Listening is also key as we sometimes tend to talk without listening. If you've stop communicating, it's time to sit down and have a heart-to-heart.
3. Take responsibility
Even if you have friends, family, your pastor or rabbi advising you, or even a marriage counselor, ultimately you both must take responsibility for what has happened to your marriage, and for bringing it back to life. The sooner you make yourselves accountable, the sooner you can face whatever issues are tearing you apart and start solving them.
To save a failing marriage, you must decide you want to. And that means doing whatever it takes to get it done -- spending time together, communicating, taking responsibility. Finally, don't depend on your own ability to save your marriage, go out there, read whatever you can grab or find online, and apply what you find.
