How can I improve my marriage without divorce?

Report as

Ask God to come into your life. As He changes you, your marriage will strengthen. As your marriage strengthens then your husband begins to change also. With God all things are possible. :0)

Try new things that normally you wouldn't do. Go a bit out of your comfort zone and talk things out. You told that man or woman you would love her for the rest of your life so you can put some effort into trying to work things out

Without counseling....talking and being there for each other. Take weekend trips and spend some time together. More info on your situation might be helpful to answer your question more effectively.

Marriage counseling, talking to your priest/pastor/rabbi, just take time to listen and spend time with one another. Make a scheduled date night.

Trust one another, love each other and show respect. Do the things that you did for her/him in the beginning of the relationship. Talk your problems through. Is kind of hard to be specific without knowing why you two are contemplating divorce.

What the movie Fireproof. And try to replay the happy fun things you did before you got married. Tell each other why you wanted to marry them. Go on dates that you used to go on when you were dating. Revist the place where you got enggaged. Explain to each other why there are problems between eachother.

Tell your significant other that you love and need them every day. Greet them with a hug and a kiss every morning. Smile every time you look at them. Train yourself to smile every time you think of them. Any time bad thoughts about your sig ot pop into your head, stop them immediately! Think of something good about them or something good you are going to do for them.

Unless there is abuse in the relationship (as in drugs or alcohol, violence or cheating, which is abusing the other person's trust) most relationships can be made better, even if only one of you is trying at first.

Good luck!

Nice ideas above. And there is the truth factor, that if you make something, you know better than anyone else how to get it to work right.....

Try a free monthly magazine that can be delivered to your door. It's got such articles as: "HELP FOR THE FAMILY-How to Avoid Hurtful Speech"; "How to End the Silent Treatment"; "Maintaining Your Commitment in Your Marriage"; "Treating Your Mate With Respect"; "Managing Money"; "Solving Problems In Your Marriage"; "Rebuilding Trust In Your Marriage"; "How To Stop Arguing"; Dealing With In-Laws" and so much more.

There is even a free website link on the back cover of the magazines, if you want the articles electronically.

"So that they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has yoked together let no man put apart" (Matthew 19:6). Try to focus on the good qualities and efforts of your spouse. Strive to have a positive and forgiving view of each other (Colossians 3:13). Loyalty is vital to have a successful marriage. When a husband and wife are loyal to each other, they can reside together safely and open their heart to each other, letting their love grow. Your spouse comes first when it comes to your time and attention. As Genesis 2:24 mentions, "A man will leave his father and his mother and he must stick to his wife." Work hard to make your spouse feel secure. By your words and actions, look for ways to reassure your partner that they are the most important person on earth and do not let anything or anyone come between you. Try to adjust your circumstances to spend more time together, maybe cooking, cleaning or doing other activities together. Remember why you fell in love and the qualities you love about your spouse. "Love never fails" (1 Corinthians 13:4-8).
