Marriage: How to Stay Together During Tough Times

There are many seasons of waiting a couple has to go through during their marriage journey. You cannot control what’s about to happen but you can definitely change the situation. Life is a mystery nobody can predict. Situations become more and more tight as it is not easy to overcome times that easily.

Marriage life can be complicated, because it is a new phase of life for everyone. So there may be differences of opinions, fights, and personal space. All married couples experience Ups and Downs in their relationship and that tough time can be overcome with the minimal efforts. After all marriage is two persons coming together to live happily.

Here are a few ways on how you can keep your relationship together;

  1. Connect Everyday

Fights are common in every relationship. If it is left unspoken that fight can last for days, weeks, months. It is crucial to address the problem early. No matter how busy you are in your career, you need to set aside time to know about what’s happening in the family.

Telling your partner how you feel will benefit the relationship. There is no way they will know how you feel if you don’t tell them. Healthy relationships can be built by communication.

  • Validate their Feelings

Every Relationship is built upon mutual respect for each other. Mutual respect is being heard and being present in a relationship is essential to its well-being. Not having your voice heard in your relationship is just as bad.

Validating one’s feelings does not mean you have to agree with them, but you should respect them. Most married couples make this mistake. When you try to make a point without hearing the other side of the argument, you are speaking to yourself.

Everyone goes through a time in life, hence listening to them will make them comfortable.

  • Give Space

The idea behind this is to get the balance right. If your partner says they need space in your relationship, something has gone a little wrong either with the marriage or just in their own life.

The truth is, a little bit of space is healthy in a relationship. Sometimes you start spending too much time together or you just aren’t feeling like yourselves or you are missing your family and this space can help reset the balance.

  1. Don’t rush in decisions

During emotional situations our minds work faster and decisions you make, may be hasty. Nearly 90% of married people take instant decisions during emotional situations and that can have a big impact over the years.

It is difficult to keep the mind at rest during these situations but make it a point to sit down and calm yourself even if it takes a day.

Making decisions in a marriage is not easy as your life is interconnected with another life (i.e.spouse). What affects you indirectly/directly affects your spouse also.


Tough times may come and go but it is not forever, your marriage is forever protecting it must be your first priority. Relationships are serious. Value it, protect it for a happy life.
