Not every love story ends with a happily ever after. Some people think that the love story ends when the couple gets married. However, it is just the beginning of a new chapter. Fairy tales do not exactly show what happens once the couple gets married. It is rare nowadays for a couple to stay married for the rest of their lives. That is because not a lot of people can see the signs that they need to save their failing marriage.
A happy marriage is quite difficult to achieve. It is why every once in a while, you must check on how the relationship is going. People who do not notice their failing marriage are doomed. However, it is never too late to fix things. Here are some signs that you must watch out for.
There are times when the fighting becomes the only form of communication you have with your spouse. It can be a big sign that you can no longer see each other eye to eye that you are no longer able to understand one another like you used to. A marriage is a form of relationship that is supposed to bond the couple. This bond can be broken, and the union will fall apart.
Constant fighting can lead to hatred. It is such a strong emotion that can overpower love. Most especially if love is no longer practiced. You might want to start talking like sensible adults and reflect on what has been happening. That way, things can still be fixed.
Another huge sign is when the romance is no longer there. There are so many ways to show your spouse that you love them. Simple kisses here and there, as well as simple gestures that you care about them, will help. The intimacy inside the bedroom is very important, as well. If this part is no longer present, then it might have turned into a platonic relationship. Wherein you both care for one another, but the romance is gone.
There are different ways on how you can light the fire again. Just as long as both of you are willing to make things better. Keep in mind that both of you must fight for the relationship for it to work again.
Not Fighting At All
Experts say that fighting too much is bad, but not fighting at all is worse. Occasional bickering is healthier. They even say that when couples fight, there might still be hope. However, when a couple does not fight at all, then it might be a sign they’ve given up.
Having misunderstandings every once in a while will showcase each other’s thoughts and feelings. If you both go with the flow, it is a sign that both of you do not care anymore. It is something that both of you might not even notice. You are no longer happy because you are no longer excited. This situation can still be fixed, as long as both of you do not give up.
