Most everyone has marital problems. Divorce rate is higher than ever. But divorce is the easy way out. People can work out their marriages if they really want to. Allot of marriages lack a spiritual foundation. I believe this statement. "Families that Pray together stay together". If your having trouble in your marriage maybe you should work on your relationship with God. If your relationship is perfect with God,which I don't think it's possible to be perfect 24/7 because we sin because we are in this flesh. Things can tempt us so much! But if you think your relationship with God is perfect, still try to make it more perfect. Try to be humble if your not. If your humble become more humble. My point is if you have a great relationship with God, pray for your spouse many times per. day, and right when you get up pray for your marriage. Pray to God that he will help you be a good wife or husband. Pray to God for patience and pray to God for wisdom. Pray to God to help you forgive your spouse. One way to spark flames in a hurt marriage, is act loving. Don't act bitter at all. Smile and try to love like God would love. Be humble, sweet and quiet if your a woman. Cook for him,give him a back massage,be kind to him and don't complain. Just be sweet and be the person he wants to be around all the time. Men hate complaining woman. It's very annoying. I know this for a fact because I'm guilty of complaining and be annoying to my husband. The less I complain the happier he is with me. Ok if your a man. Pray for your wife and just love her. Remind her you love her. Give her flowers and tell her thank you after she cooks you a dinner. Show your appreciation too. Rekindle your marriage. Be kind to one another. If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all. The tongue can be our worse enemy. Learn to control it. This will help your marriage allot. It make take time. But if you really want to save your marriage or make it better, try not to argue and try not to be the person with the last word. Just be kind and keep praying everyday.

I perfectly agree with you Sweetkate. Although Im not yet married, I find communcation is the main problem that most relationship have. Even in my past relationships, even a single miscommunication can bring a ton of arguments which in the end can only hurt the person you love. Yes its right to take control of yoru tongue and start talking and praying for one another and not just the relationship but the person itself. Praying for the person to change as i have experinced and witnessed is not very effective and what more is effective is start the change within you! Nothing better than this and you will see that your partner will start to change also. God being the center of your relationship I trully believe is one great thing to make the relationsip work and it doesnt matter what religion you are in. As the song goes..."Let peace begin with me..." I also believe in what you give you will also get back. So if you start to show love than hatred or anger, your partner will also start to show love back to you!
