We know marriage can be hard sometimes. I think we’ve all been through a little fighting, some not-so-nice words and maybe even a little bitterness.
But what happens when the fighting, unkind words and bitterness don’t stop? What happens when you don’t feel a connection with your spouse anymore? What are you supposed to do when you feel like your marriage is so broken, it can’t be fixed?
Unless your marriage is physically, emotionally, mentally or sexually abusive, it’s not broken beyond repair. You can bring back the love you once shared with your spouse. Here are eight small things you can do to fix your marriage:
Attend marriage counseling
It might be the last thing you want to do, but if you and your spouse are both set on fixing your marriage, couples counseling can do wonders. Talking with a therapist and getting your feelings out in the open can help you work through your problems and find actual solutions.
Have physical contact every day
You don’t need to be intimate every day of the week to fix your marriage, but you do need some type of physical touch. Holding hands, a gentle touch on the shoulder or a little kiss can go a long way when your marriage is in a rough patch. These small gestures will remind you of your love for each other.
