Divorce was once a taboo subject reserved for only the most serious problems that could arise in a marriage. Today, divorce is viewed very differently. The divorce rate has grown dramatically in the past several decades. Analysts estimate at least half of all first marriages will end in divorce. Second and third marriages have an even higher failure rate. Society has embraced divorce and many prepare for an impending divorce before they even take their vows. Prenuptial agreements are not for the rich and famous anymore.

Committing to Making the Marriage Work

There are ways to stop divorce and repair a damaged marriage. Husband and wife must be willing to commit to saving the marriage. The majority of the reasons a couple choose to divorce can be fixed or worked through with some effort from both parties. Viewing marriage as it was intended, a lifelong commitment, can help a couple realize that any problems that may arise in the marriage must be worked through.

How to Curb Natural Tendency to Grow Apart

It is normal for people to change and grow as they age. For some, this growing causes a divide in the relationship. A married couple must take proactive steps to prevent this from happening. If the rift is already there, the couple is most likely considering a divorce instead of trying to find and fall in love with one another again.

Dealing With Infidelity

Once that divide opens up in the relationship, infidelity often becomes an issue. However, infidelity does not have to mean the end of a marriage. Yes, it is a devastating problem, but it can be worked through. Many couples that may originally choose to divorce, stop divorce proceedings and attempt to work on the marriage. Those couples often find that the infidelity was the result of a deeper issue in the marriage. Once that issue or issues have been identified, the couple can rebuild a stronger, more stable and loving marriage together.

Seek Professional Help

It is often best to incorporate the help of a professional counselor to help identify and work through any problems in the marriage. Learning how to communicate with one another is a key part to maintaining a healthy marriage. Learning to cope and embrace each others' faults is another way to make a marriage work. Children, work, and finances are often major stressors in a relationship. A couple must work together to successfully manage all the things in life that may take time and attention away from one another.

An effective solution that counselors and other happily married couples suggest is reserving at least one night a week for each other. Some couples plan an hour or several to just be with one another. This can be something as simple as going out to dinner or taking a nice walk around the neighborhood. The time alone allows each partner to enjoy their spouse without worrying about kids barging in, the office calling or some other task that takes the attention away from each other. A couple can stop divorce by putting a lot of love and effort into making their marriage work.
