I just went to Yahoo answers and entered the phrase “save marriage” in the search term.
I’ve got 17884 results!
Some statistic I’ve read about says that more than half of marriages in the United States end with a divorce! When we look at this it’s no wonder that there are SO many books, so many information about dealing with marriage problems, so many people seeking for advice or seeking for compassion in the hard times of going through a divorce or a break up.
Now, some may even provoke the thesis that the concept of marriage is no longer sustainable in today’s modern world.
However, I wont go down that road in this post. The purpose of this post is to say something about the various “how to save your marriage” products and courses that are available online.
Let’s see one question from Yahoo answers I’ve selected
Question from Ram330
Subject: Save marriage?
Wife and I have Been married for 10yr with two kids. She says I’m a great dad, wonderful person, good husband but lack in the romance and communication area.She’s 30 but recently meet a 21 yr o’ guy that works in the same field of work shes in. Shes already spent the night but clams not to have sex But wants get back on the pill so she can. Everyday that goes by she seems more cold harted and has said she has nothing left to give to our marriage. I’m not ready to lose her. This is not the 1st time she cheated 2 yr back she had sex with a 18yr guy. Any suggestions or ideas to help. PLEASE
Now, I feel sorry for the situation this gentleman had to go through. But I wanted to point this out as an example of the situation where you shouldn’t back down, where you shouldn’t even consider saving “marriage” as there is nothing to save here. The boat already sunk.
Actually, this gentleman had this coming for him and he let it happen. His wife lost her respect for him, she treated him badly, she already hurt him by her infidelity and he closed his eyes on this.
I feel sorry for what his two kids had to go through as a result of their divorce.
So, before you consider getting some help or ask yourself these questions:
Why would you like to save your marriage?
Does your partner deserve you?
Now, the point I want to make is – when it’s over – it’s over. So move on.
So seek for the advice and information when you first notice struggles in your relationship or marriage.
It’s much easier to save it when your conflict is in it’s early stage.
That said, let’s take a look at a few books that provide tips for saving your marriage.
