How to Save a Marriage from Divorce (Don’t File Yet!)

Is your marriage in trouble, and you are not sure how to fix it? Don’t give up just yet. With the right mindset and strategies, it is possible to save a marriage from divorce and rebuild the strong bond that once existed. From finding ways to reconnect to seeking help, let us show you ways to save a marriage and keep it alive. After all, your marriage is always worth fighting for!

Ways to Save Your Marriage

Here are some ways that you can try to save your marriage before you end up filing for divorce:

Take full responsibility

You are responsible for your actions, and so is your spouse. Blaming either of you for what happened will not help you heal and move forward. Instead, try taking ownership of your issues by looking at how you contributed to the problems in terms of:

  • Doing things that hurt each other
  • Not saying what needed to be said (or not saying anything at all)
  • Saying hurtful things that you regret

Never try to make your partner feel guilty – it never works

Guilt can damage trust, which is essential for any relationship to thrive, so always avoid giving any hint of it when communicating with your partner. Never use it as a weapon. Doing so will only lead to more arguments and will make things worse. Do these instead:

  • Do not assume that your partner is trying to hurt you on purpose.
  • Talk about the things that are bothering you in a calm, non-judgmental way. 
  • Be grateful that you have your spouse in your life, even if he/she is not perfect.
  • Appreciate the small gestures.
  • Compliment your spouse sincerely and often.

Find time to talk about anything but the marriage

I know—it’s hard to find time for your spouse because you are busy with work and kids.

But here’s the thing: you just have to make it a priority!

Taking even just an hour a week to talk about the lighter and fun things in your marriage will make a huge difference.  Here’s what you can do to give your marriage a break from those heavy conversions-. 

  • Listen carefully
  • Have regular “couple’s time”
  • Do something spontaneous
  • Plan a date night
  • Engage in a shared hobby
  • Volunteer together
  • Show appreciation and gratitude
  • Go for a walk together

Reconnecting with your spouse requires effort and commitment, but the rewards of a stronger and happier relationship are well worth it.

Don’t be afraid of conflicts

It is easy to think that if you are in a relationship, you should be in total agreement with your partner. But this isn’t the case. 

Don’t let pride get in the way of saving your marriage

This could be one of the most challenging ways to save a marriage, but it’s also the most important. If you are willing to ask for help or admit that there is something wrong in your relationship, then there’s hope! Pride can lead us to do things we regret and can prevent us from making amends when we have done something wrong.

Try to look at the bigger picture. You might see things more clearly if you can get past the pride holding you back from making amends or apologizing.

Don’t go through this alone

Save your marriage—even if you think all hope is lost

You are hurting, but it is never too late to save your marriage. It will take time, effort, and commitment from both parties, but it is not impossible as long as you believe you can save this marriage. You won’t be able to fix everything overnight, and no magic formula guarantees success every time out. But if your reasons to save your marriage are enough, and you are serious about making things right in your relationship, you must put efforts toward creating an actionable plan together.
