2. If you start to show your spouse the stress and tension that you're feeling, he or she may back away more. They may try to run from the pressure. It is important that you stay as calm as possible. Nothing ever gets fixed when you stay tense - it is only when we make ourselves calm that we can think clearly enough to solve problems.
3. Even married couples need their space. Are you crowding each other? Is one of you hounding the other one, or nagging? The two of you should have your own down time, doing things that you each like to do. This will help to ease some of the tension and still keep you together.
4. Remember that a marriage is a partnership - two people combined as one, to evenly share responsibilities. Instead of one person making all of the decisions, you should both have a say in them. If you don't agree, that's ok. marriage is all about compromise - you're not supposed to agree all of the time. When you both bend a little bit, you will see that a lot of the tension will disappear from your marriage.
5. How well do you know each other? Maybe you should spend some time learning more about each other. Talk about your favorite hobbies, or find something out about each other that you don't know. People change over time, and so do interests. Maybe you'll find out something you've never known about your spouse!
6. Save the complaining for big things. Let the little things slide, the best that you can. This can be difficult at first, but it gets easier, the more you do it. Not everything has to become an argument. Like in the old movies - a 'yes dear' or something to that effect works well in evading an argument.
7. If your spouse has a better job than you, or if they work with a lot of the opposite sex, do your very best to not become jealous. Jealousy is a sure relationship killer. Have faith in your spouse - jealousy or envy should never have a role in any relationship, especially a marriage.
These 7 save marriage tips are meant to give you some ideas that you may not have thought of before.
