Maybe you need a little time for yourself to be able to press the reset-button inside, If you manage to do that you can probably see the relationship in a different light and it will help you to build up new and positive patterns of behavior.

Take time to reconnect - even if you have to take a step back first.  Spending some time alone can help you figure out what you really want from the relationship and if it's salvageable.

To save a marriage, husbands and wives should take all the effort in showing the other person that they love them. This is important and if at any time the other person thinks that the love is no longer present, the marriage is dead.

Be hasty to forgive and forget the wrongs of the significant other and try to bond and build a relationship without arguing and being defensive. Defensiveness is an act of the ego which is not good.

Be cautious in having friends of the opposite sex as at some point this can very well become an affair and this can ruin any marriage. Always keep a distance and keep your spouse posted on the relationship.

Stop looking at others' married life and compare. Everyone is different and hence try to invest more time in making your married life a better one. This saves any marriage from breaking.

Talk to each other without judgment.

Make a list of the issues that you have with your spouse. Then next to each one, write how you respond to that issue. That will show you very quickly if you are actually communicating your issues to your spouse, or if you just are hoping he or she will pick up on your silent cues.

Saving a marriage can be a tough task, or an easy one; it all depends on the problems at hand and how you communicate.  Each couple is unique, and every couple faces a unique set of challenges and circumstances in marriage.  Talk with your partner; determine that you both want things to work out, and get your partner’s buy-in to put effort into saving your marriage.  Tell each other what you each plan to contribute.  Give your appearance more attention, like you did when you and your husband first dated.  Then, go on a few dates together.  Start over fresh.  When you are spending quality time together, avoid those topics that cause arguments.  Do only nice things for one another. Have sex.Compliment each other, appreciate each other.  Laugh together.   See a therapist or talk to a good family friend about differences or issues that you cannot resolve on your own.  Communicate well, often, and without blaming.

Some effective ways to save a marriage are to dig deep to find the core cause, figure out the ways you aren’t communicating effectively, make sure you are still making time to have fun together and rekindle your love through common interests, and really take the time and make the effort to truly listen to your partner with unconditional regard, attention, and nonjudgment. Be sure to ask, with your full heart behind it, what she or he is truly needing from you right now and what is missing. Then work to fill those needs. It can take real desire for an action of change.
