Standing the Test of Time: How You Can Avoid Divorce with The Right Steps

Working on making your marriage successful takes effort. It is not easy to stay happily married as it requires commitment, dedication, and intention to stay in the relationship and not divorce. When problems arise, some couples seek divorce life coaching or a relationship coach to overcome their problems. As a couple’s therapist doing marriage counseling in Dubai, these are some of the tips I offer my clients to avoid divorce.

Devote Couple Connection Time.

Making the time to connect with your spouse on a daily basis passionately is a significant step towards marital success. Dedicate at least twenty minutes a day to spend exclusive quality time together away from the kids or daily chores. Use this time to reaffirm your love to one another and show affection.

Words of Affirmation.

Remember to shower one another with compliments and words of affirmation. Praising one another strengthens the relationship and ignites the passion. Say “I love you” every day to one another as this deepens the loving bond between you. Make sure to express appreciation and respect to your partner, as this is heartwarming. 

Speak the Love Language of your spouse

We often show our love in the way we want to be loved ourselves and forget that our spouse may be speaking a different love language. For example, a husband who works hard for his family thinks that he is showing them love by providing for the family. However, if his wife’s love language is quality time, she will feel deprived of love if her husband spends his whole day at work regardless of whether he is doing this because he loves her. 

Look Your Best for Your Spouse

Make sure to take care of your appearance so that the physical attraction remains alive. Some couples become too comfortable in the relationship, and let go of their bodies, stop taking care of their hygiene, and wear clothes that are a complete turn off for their spouse. So, remember to make an effort and always look your best for your partner.

Be Friends

The most successful relationships are based on a friendship bond between the couple. This friendship means always being interested in the details of your partner and enjoying each other’s company.

Communicate Regularly

Talking openly about your feelings, needs, and expectations is the best way to avoid a bumpy road in the marriage. It is also important to listen to your partner with the intent to hear and understand, not respond or defend. Having a real conversation with effective communication skills can bring you closer together.

Finally, it is crucial to understand that involving an experienced, caring, and non-judgmental couple’s therapist can make a huge difference.
