In the world today we have an unending list of young and old marriages or homes been turned apart because of matters that doesn’t worth it, matters that simple understanding can settle and push it to the air.
Here are four ways among the many ways you can protect your marriage from failing and sustain a good relationship.
1. Dig no further when you are in a hole: Under pressure, we tend to try the same failed strategy again and again. Even though we know pushing for an answer; getting angry or going silent doesn’t work, we imagine doing it one more time (but bigger, louder or far longer) will change things. It won’t.
2. Give no room for retaliation: If your partner does something horrible and you retaliate in order to get back at him, it will become a race to the bottom.
Just for a second, put your feelings to one side and step in your partner’s shoes.
3. Apologize from your heart: This has nothing to do with just saying am sorry. First acknowledge any behaviour that you regret, next, identify how this might have made him feel, and then apologise. Please don’t explain why you acted as you did – that’s for another day – because it can sound like an excuse and lessen the power of your apology.
4. Cover up: If you love your partner and if not, then why are you spending hours talking about him/her to your friends – do you love him enough to give without any expectation (in the short term) of getting anything back?
