Tips for making your marriage work, are given below:
Express your Desire
Do not assume that since you guys had been dating and then got married he/she should be able to make out what is going on in your mind. Please keep ego at bay. Choose a comfortable time when your spouse is not in a rush.
Tell that you really want this marriage to work. Say that you are willing to do all that it takes to save it but you cannot do it without their support.
Everyone wants to be loved in this world. Initiation from your side will not represent you as an inferior person. Rather it is a step to revive the security that could have worn out because of several reasons.
Write Down the Negatives and Positives in your Spouse
Make two columns and pen down negatives and positives of your spouse in the respective columns. If you are able to write more positives in your spouse then clearly you still have feelings for them. The same is reflected if you find yourself justifying his faults. This will give you a peep into your own inner feelings.
You may show this piece of paper to your spouse, expressing your feelings. Focus on his/her positive points and motivate your partner to take up this small exercise.
Rekindle romance in your life by doing few special things for your spouse. You can make arrangements for a candle light dinner at home. Place a flower at their side of bed with a small note saying something nice. It could say, “I still love you” or “have a great day”.
Importance of Physical Intimacy
Sexual intercourse is an integral part in a marriage. You cannot take it for granted. You have known your partner and know it well what turns them on.
Prepare a nice bubble bath for your mate when you know he/she is coming home after a tiring day. It could also be done on a Sunday afternoon. It will make your partner feel pampered. Needless to say, it will lead to more meaningful stuff (wink!).
All the best!
