— 4 Ways to Save Marriage
Whether your spouse has told you that they’re no longer happy, or you’re simply suspecting that they may soon calls it quits, I’m here to tell you how you can single handedly save your marriage.
My name is Brad Browning, I’m a relationship coach, marriage expert, and author of the best-selling Mend the Marriage program. Over the years I’ve worked with many individuals wanting to save their marriage, and one thing I’ve repeatedly encountered is the common belief that one spouse cannot do it alone. Well, I’m here to tell you otherwise. In fact, I have seen many marriages saved when one of the partners takes action – even if the other has refused to keep trying.
Today I’m going to share with you four ways to save your marriage on your own.
Number 1: Accept the Situation
It’s perfectly normal to have a hard time accepting that your spouse feels the way they do. And a common reaction is trying to convince them that things can get better. However, this is actually the worst thing you can do in your situation.
As tempting as it may be, crying and begging for your spouse to give your marriage another chance will not change their mind. Reacting to the news angrily also won’t help. Since your spouse is already past the point of believing change is possible, your desperation will have no impact on your them. Instead, these types of reactions will make you appear weak and out of control.
If you want to save your marriage, you will not get there through pity, cruel words, or dramatic actions. It’s okay for your spouse to know that you’re upset about the situation, but it’s more important for them to know that you have control of your feelings.
To save your marriage you need to accept the situation and acknowledge that you played a role in creating your marital problems.
