Contrary to vacation romance novels and Hindi films, where everything is resolved after one or two arguments, maintaining thriving marriages requires labor. It doesn’t have to be difficult, though. It seems to sense that, when you’re juggling duties and frazzled nerves on a daily basis, handling relationship conflicts falls to the bottom of your priority list. Even just juggling everyday responsibilities like a job, kids, family, friends, neighbors, and your house may be challenging, and many of us are just fatigued.

Dealing with your sluggish relationship or deteriorating intimacy issues is easier to put off, especially during tough times. But with these pointers, you may navigate your difficult marriage away from rough waters.

1. Get used to taking three days off.

Just as in any other arrangement, married couples need to have time apart. Even if you don’t want to leave your relationship, spending time apart allows you to focus on your needs as individual individuals.

2. List the things for which you are thankful.

Gratitude is yet another important aspect of a strong relationship. It’s because showing your spouse your appreciation for what they have done or are working on now serves as a continual reminder of your support.

3. Saying “we” will fix issues.

Never forget that in a marriage you are doing everything jointly, including finding solutions to issues. Therefore, if a problem arises, you might wish to begin the dialogue with the pronoun “we.”
