- Prioritize each other
This is the mother of all tips to save a marriage.
Successful old marrieds have come to realize that above all relationships, each one has in their lives’ even kids, own parents, siblings, co-workers, best buds’ and golfing pals, a couple has to prioritize their marriage.
Your spouse has to know that he or she can trust on you to do what’s best for the relationship and vice versa, that he or she is your best friend and will never let you down.
You face the obligations you have towards others as a team when you work as a team.
People fail to realize that your spouse is your foremost and first priority!
They allow their marriages to get caught in between squabbling kids, family politics and even work obligations.

- Don’t give up dating … Each other!
You can even take turns planning surprise dates.
They don’t have to be grand, they just have to be time off to feed number one above, and this keeps intimacy flowing.

The humdrum of life, kids and laundry can take a way time for each other.
Therefore, don’t allow it!

- Fight fair, laugh always
How do you see arguing or fighting in your relationship?

Laugh with your spouse at your annoying little fights while seeing them both as essential to your marriage.
- Talk, discuss, agree to disagree!
As a couple, it’s better if you share a majority of your beliefs and perspectives about life, and expand upon them, sharing ideas and so forth.
This connection brings you closer to absolute wholeness of mind, and this is considered truly a “holy relationship.”.
The Course in Miracles states, “A holy relationship, however newly born, must value holiness above all else.”
Even if you don’t, talking, bantering and discussing are important in keeping the spice in your marriage.
Remember, of all the tips to save a marriage the more you talk, the more you get to know what your spouse is feeling and thinking.
