Strategy # 1 Be Prepared to Take Action ( Prioritize Your Marriage)
Marriage is not something that just happens. It is a relationship that needs to be nurtured regularly. Your marriage should take priority over any other relationship, including the children. Jobs can be replaced, houses and cars can be replaced. If you have found yourself allowing your hobbies, your job, hanging out with others, etc. to become your focal point, The time for Change is NOW!
Strategy # 2 Clarify what Needs To Be Addressed
Be specific in what the problems are in your marriage. Simply stating that he/she does not help out in the home is too general. You need to outline what you need help with specifically.
Strategy # 3 Restore the Emotional Connection Between the Two Of You
I know this may sound crazy but often times we put the needs of our jobs, our children, our family members and friends ahead of our own needs. You can’t pour from an Empty Cup. Engage in behaviors that help rekindle the spark in your marriage.
Strategy # 4 Take Ownership of Your Flaws & Wrongdoings
Be willing to take responsibility for your role in the problems in the marriage. Give your spouse the opportunity to share with you how they are feeling and what they consider the problems and respond by validating their feelings and offering to work with them toward finding solutions for the problems.
