— How to Rebuild Your Relationship With Your Spouse (Save Your Marriage)
Hey YouTube, Brad Browning here. I’m a relationship coach from western Canada and today I’m going to share with you some helpful tips for rebuilding your relationship with your spouse.
Now before I get started I just want to quickly say that no marriage is perfect, so even if it feels like your relationship is crumbling, you can still single-handedly save it. To find out your chances of saving your marriage, pop on over to www.marriageguy.com/quiz and take the free online test. It’ll also let you know what you need to do to save your relationship based on your quiz results.
Now, let’s get started.
The first and perhaps most important thing to note is that rebuilding your relationship with your spouse starts with you.
I know this sounds cliche, but it’s true! Since there are likely issues between you and your spouse, recognizing how you negatively contribute to the relationship is crucial. Once you do you can work on yourself and become the best version of you possible.
To do this, ask yourself where your problems lie, or what things you do that cause arguments or push your spouse away. For example, maybe you have a pessimistic streak that comes out far too often, or maybe you nag him or her about little things all the time. Whatever is it, pinpoint your problems and make an effort to work on them. Once your spouse sees that you’re working on you, he or she will be much more inclined to work on rebuilding your relationship, with you.
The next thing you’ll want to do is avoid setting high expectations.
Now I know this can be hard, especially when your imagination gets the best of you, but if you want to work on saving your relationship then it’s important to not set unrealistic expectations for your spouse. In other words, don’t expect him or her to be someone they’re not.
Sure, you may love the idea of your spouse getting involved in the things you like to do, or stepping up their romantic game, but again, you can’t expect your husband or wife to change over night or become the someone they’re not.
Simply put, the key to rebuilding your relationship with your spouse is to avoid setting the bar too high. When you create unrealistic expectations you’ll only find yourself disappointed.
