I’m back with another Monday Marriage post.
Today i’m talking about how to have your marriage not just survive, but thrive during hard times.
We all face hard times in our lives. Whether it’s for a day, week, month, or even years. There are going to be hard times.
My husband and i went through a really rough patch during the recession of 2008/2009. We lost just about everything. However, our marriage was able to survive. How did we do it?
We had to keep a strong faith that everything would turn out just fine in the end. Otherwise we would have been just miserable. When you have a positive attitude, even during the hardest of times, it makes those hard times easier to bare.
Keeping open lines of communication is always a must in relationships. Just being able to say to your significant other, hey i’m having a bad day and having them talk you through it is major.
Fighting for your marriage. Fighting for your significant other. It’s so important.
If you do all those 3 things; keeping faith, communicating, and fighting for your marriage during hard/challenging times, you will see at the end of your troubles your marriage has not only found a way to survive but it has thrived. You both are more connected then ever.
And if any new troubles come your way, you now have the knowledge (and first hand experience) of how to survive them.
