Are you thinking your marriage is on the rock? Don't despair or panic, it is not over yet and with a little work and some good luck you can save your relationship.
Every partnership between a man and a woman will go through a period where it seems they have fallen in hate with each other rather than love. Perhaps you are fighting every day and can't remember the last time you both spent some quality loving time together. Perhaps your sex life has died and is now just a distant memory. Or maybe you have found out your partner has been cheating on you or lying to you about something important?
People often believe that cheating is the end of any relationship but it doesn't have to be. A one off affair is not the same as somebody who cheats on a regular basis regardless of the consequences. That shows a distinct lack of respect for their partner and that is not an easy problem to resolve.
Whatever the reason for your current difficulties, splitting up and heading for the divorce courts is not the easy answer. You owe it to yourself and each other to make an effort to save this relationship and fight for your right to be happy together. You fell in love once and the good news is that you can rekindle these feelings and perhaps even make your marriage stronger. Will it be easy? No! Will it be painful? Yes! Will it take time? Yes! But will it be worth it? Almost definitely. I say almost as only you know whether you are willing to put in the time, effort and commitment to saving your marriage.
You are going to need some outside help. For some this will take the form of relationship counseling while others would prefer to read a book in the privacy of their own home. Some people will want to do both. I would strongly recommend that you both read the Magic of Making Up. It will help you to put things into perspective. It will also show you that most couples are capable of resolving their issues and making their commitment to each other stronger and happier.
It really comes down to the question of whether you are prepared to fight for the potential your marriage once had or if you want to walk away. If you think you prefer the second option, remember that the grass can appear greener on the other side. In other words, it may seem that you will be happier with your partner out of the picture but the reality could be very different. Life is hard no matter what age or background you come from. Sharing the ups and downs that come along every day with someone you love and respect makes living a lot more fun and a lot more worthwhile.
