Sadly, 50% of Cinderella wedding days end in a divorce. If your marriage is rocky but you and your spouse want to make it work there is help: Marriage Counseling. It's important to remember that any relationship takes effort especially a marriage relationship. Before seeking help with a counselor here are a few tips on preparation:
Acknowledge there is a problem.
- Take responsibility of your actions. A marriage is a two way relationship hardly ever are the problems all one person's doing.
- Prepare for change. Sacrifices must be made to understand each other and meet each others needs. Almost always this includes making new priorities.
- Don't expect a miracle. A marriage counselor will help you and your spouse work things out not perform miracles.
- It will be hard work but the results could be a happier family life.
Also, it's essential to understand that people change and often you are different now than you were when you were young and dating. Fredrick Nietzsche said that it is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that make unhappy marriages. Children and responsibilities make it difficult to nurture a marriage relationship but if you want to keep your love alive and maintain your friendship it must be a top priority. To enrich your friendship first you need to spend time together doing things you both enjoy. If you find that you no longer have much in common talk about your hobbies and plan dates together. Marriage offers a best friend but it's up to you to make sure your spouse is your best friend.
