There comes a time where it seems like there's nothing left in a marriage. Perhaps it's dreary, uneventful, depressing, hurtful, or even abusive. It makes you wonder why you even got married in the first place! It was because you loved your spouse, and your spouse loved you. No marriage is perfect, and it may even seem like sometimes leaving is your last resort. But there is always hope, there is always a way out, and there is always a way to restore what you have lost.

A marriage can be both negative and positive, and require lots of effort to make it work. So why don't you put down your pen, and push away the divorce papers, because with six easy marriage help suggestions, you don't need to feel so much pain, and you never did. If you've ever felt like your marriage has become bland and frustrating, if you've halted any efforts to make your relationship better, then continue reading, because you deserve better, and you know it.

1. Let it Go. Starting today, the next time your partner makes a mistake, just ask him or her to say sorry, and move on. Your spouse might be surprised that you're not bitter, or throwing a fit. This is because it's something different: a change. You can't hold grudges if you want a relationship to work. They are more detrimental to relationships than they are helpful. Apologize, acknowledge, and let it go. Just make sure it doesn't happen again!

2. Respect and honesty. There becomes a certain point in marriages where spouses begin to appreciate each other's efforts, love, and so many other things, especially in dysfunctional ones. Say thank you once in a while, let them recognize the fact that they appreciate what your spouse does for you. Telling the truth and not letting a problem build up inside are two things every marriage needs. Married couples with great communication and honesty are those that build the happiest and strongest relationships.

3. Communicate with your partner. Anyone can communicate with their partner. But communicating well is what builds a relationship and retains one. Simply letting things get to you and not talking about them damages the insides of human bodies by slowly eating away inside. If a wife is angry about something her spouse uttered or did, she should tell him immediately instead of assuming he'll guess what's wrong. Women and men-although similar in many ways-do not always recognize the same faults and mistakes. Husbands need to be willing to express their emotions more often as well, rather than hiding them.

4. No Patriarchy or Matriarchy. Make decisions together! Don't let one person run the other over with his or her opinion. Do you really think your spouse should have to take the dog out for another walk? Is the IRS really a concern we can put off until next week? Are the kids really going to be okay at Aunt Sally's for tonight? Can we really afford a boat? These are all questions to opinions that were stated independently. A better example of working together might be "taxes are piling up, but I think we can put them off. What do you think?" Hopefully your spouse will bring you back to earth and tell you that no, we can't, because otherwise you'll come home to no home. If you're disputing over a decision, this is natural, and you both just need some space. Relax, and come back to it later with a fresh mind. If you still conflict, try giving in to your spouse. Exchange roles and you'll notice a difference in the hostility in your relationship conflicts.

5. "I love you for who you are.". Husbands must remember to compliment their wives and show affection. If she did a good job at work and got a promotion, take her out for dinner. If it's Valentine's Day, buy her some chocolates and flowers. If it's an ordinary day, buy her some anyway. In addition, wives need to be observant, and tend to their husbands requests and individual needs. Show that you love each other.

6. Remain close. If you want for a strong bond to remain between you, intimacy is an excellent way to strengthen it, and it also only sprouts in a marriage that has strength. Linking back to communication, be willing to be honest with each othe, say what does and doesn't turn you on. Knowing your spouse more deeply and personally makes making love something more intimate, something that brings love to a whole new level of intimacy. If you don't have the time to be close with your partner, make time. It's what important in a relationship and what will help you reestablish one.

Marriage is hard. It's not easy stuff, especially when you see so many other marriages begin and fail. However, if both partners love each other, if both partners know they can stick with each other until the end, there is very little that can tear that love apart.

So why continue letting your relationship with your spouse deteriorate? Put down those divorce papers, and settle for something else, something that takes you further beyond just six tips.
