Do you ever feel or wonder if your marriage is on the verge of divorce?

Don’t despair.

The good news is that if you have the desire to save your marriage, it can be done – it won’t be easy but it can be done. So don’t let the “not easy” part scare you away.

The first step you need to take to stop divorce and save your marriage is to convince your partner that your relationship is worth saving – that your problems can be solved.

Start this process by sitting down with your partner to let him or her know exactly how you feel.

It’s best if before you begin to actively try to save your marriage, you enlist your spouse’s cooperation. Don’t assume that he or she wants to save the marriage – although it’s very likely they will.

During this talk, acknowledge your role and responsibility that created, in part, your prevailing marriage problems.

For example, if you cheated on your spouse, come clean.

Similarly, if you haven’t been spending a lot of time with your partner, let him or her know that you realize this has caused a lot of problems and you are changing things starting now.

But in addition to beginning the communication process with your spouse and admitting your mistakes, step two to stop divorce and save your marriage is for the two of you to create a plan together on how you will work through the process of  solving your marriage problems.

Keep in mind that in order to save your  marriage, it’s likely you will need to seek outside help.

If you feel that you and your spouse can deal with your marriage problems on your own, then by all means go ahead and give it a try.

However, if either of you feel overwhelmed by your efforts to save the relationship, then understand that it doesn’t hurt to seek professional marriage counseling. The counselor should be able to give you practical marriage advice that visibly begins improving your marriage.

There is always a 50/50 chance that your spouse will reject your attempts to save the marriage. If they do, don’t push it.

Only you and your partner know the exact condition of your marriage. Maybe there were many chances to save the marriage before but for whatever reason those opportunities have seemingly passed. (Even so, if I were you? I still wouldn’t give up.)

On the other hand, maybe your spouse feels that your marriage cannot be saved. If so, then let it be for now and give him or her some space. They probably need just a little more time to think things through. And I bet that after they do, they will agree to give your marriage a second chance (or third, or fourth, or fifth – you get the idea; just don’t give up).

So don’t lose hope!

Time has a way of healing wounds. Your marriage is good enough to save – and it’s worth saving, too!

Taking these simple steps to stop divorce and save your marriage creates the time, opportunity and attention needed to save your relationship. It won’t be easy – but that’s one of the things that makes it so worth it. You’ll see.

The worst thing you can do is to do nothing. It’s also the most painful thing you can do.

So commit today to follow these steps to save your marriage…and bring your relationship back to life.
