All couples wishfully think that their marriage would last for ages and that the spark of love will glow forever. A husband believes that the karmic connection between him and his wife is eternal and the wife believes the same.
Peace, love, and understanding form the foundation of every marriage. Successful marriages are those which follow it to the core.
The idea of spending the entire life with a loved one is indeed a righteous one, but sometimes things don’t go in the right direction.

The bliss of marriage turns sour and everything gets lost. In today’s world, the notion of an ‘Ideal Couple’ is slowly disappearing because creating a balance between personal and professional commitments becomes major tedium for many.
Juggling between the personal and professional domains leads to a lot of stress which affects family life.
- Of late, have you started feeling the same?
Do you feel that your spouse is no longer the same person that he used to be before marriage? Do you feel your partner spends less time at home, instead spares more time for his various outdoor endeavors? Do you think your marriage is heading to that one bad word ‘divorce’? In order to save your marriage from the brink of destruction, read this and follow suit.
- The art of forgiveness
We know that human beings are prone to making mistakes and we aren’t as perfect as we think we are. Knowingly or unknowingly, we end up hurting our loved ones. The more you wish to reinstate the idea that yours is a ‘blissful marriage’, the more disappointed you will be.
This is because the more you try to transform your marriage into an ideal one, the more you tend to expect from your spouse; as a result, more often than not, they fail to live up to your expectations.
As it is rightly said, ‘learn to love and accept someone with their flaws, for they are mere humans acting in the same way as you are. Practice the art of forgiveness, let go of the small grudges and see the magic it will bring in your life.
- Be honest and talk it out
You may be having frequent arguments with your spouse, which leads to misunderstandings. This might be one of the factors that make it difficult to co-exist with them. But, that doesn’t mean there is no solution.
You must talk it out and convey your feelings, whether good or bad, towards your spouse. The more you keep mum, the sooner it would lead to an impending divorce. Get to the root of the problem and make a genuine effort to get rid of it.
- Shrug off your ego
Your inability to let go off your ego might hurt your partner and it will eventually lead to a major marital disaster. It never hurts to go that extra mile for your loved ones and make them feel wanted.
Prioritizing your work and family life is extremely essential to avoid trouble times. Keeping your ego aside and saying ‘sorry’ can really help in adding the element of ‘understanding’ to your relationship.
- Stay committed and don’t give up
Patience is one of the virtues of life which will keep your marriage going for years and years. You have to be determined to make the marriage work, come what may. Giving up is not the answer.
It’s easier to fall apart, but harder to build it all over again. Try to make your marriage work by all ways possible. This will also reveal your level of dedication towards your relationship.
Deep down inside, you know you don’t want to go for a divorce. Your destiny is still in your hands and you can save it by acting out in the right way. Taking that extra step is necessary, especially when you believe that your match was made in ‘heaven’.
