Your relationship with God will never let you down, but it's not the same with your significant other. There are times where you'll truly be tested and it will take everything in your power to stay together. All you need to concentrate on is making sure it doesn't fall apart.

I've experienced the ways in which you can do this. How you can save yourself from a life of marriage where both parties are deeply unhappy. I'd like to offer you a few suggestions that have helped tremendously over the months when it felt like hope was gone.

Learn To Love Yourself First

When you're in a rocky relationship it's too easy to look at the flaws of your partner. It's your ego trying to tell you it's not your fault, but you have to be strong enough to fight the ego until it disappears.

In reality, a lot of the problems are going to be your fault. I know this because I'm speaking from experience, so don't try to fight it. Examine the situation closely and learn how to start loving yourself.

Keep Yourself Active And Healthy

One of the reasons I think people are crumbling is because they don't take enough care of their body through exercise. It's also going to help you mentally in the same way prayer does, so you'll always feel great.

If you're not in good physical condition you can't expect to be a good partner. Once you feel alive again after exercise the positive feelings will carry through to your relationship and they'll be appreciated.

Advance In Your Career

You've probably noticed everything mentioned so far has involved trying to change yourself. Another big one I feel that ranks alongside physical health is your career. If you feel like a success in life it will shine through.

You might have to spend time in career counseling to maximize your chances of progressing in your professional life. There are lots of opportunities in Canada and other western countries, so take advantage of them.

Knowing When To Stay Calm

When two people are in a troubled relationship they're going to fight, which can easily turn into a disaster and make things a hundred times worse. It usually happens because of one specific reason.

Your partner will know exactly how to push your buttons, but instead of reacting badly to it ignore them instead. It's one of the best ways to calm a situation down before things get too heated.

Visit A Relationship Retreat

In some cases, you will have to get your significant other involved to work through lots of things, but you can do something a little more exciting than therapy. I know relationship retreats are popular in Calgary and everywhere else.

At the end of the day, it could take something so significant to save your marriage. You'll learn to appreciate each other more because no matter how much you know your partner you'll find out more at these retreats.

It Takes Lots Of Hard Work

Sometimes relationships do take a lot of hard work if you want them to prosper, but nobody ever said anything good in life was easy. If you use these tips you'll be well on your way to living a happier life with your true love.
