Tip One:Recognize that marital duress typically takes missteps from both partners. If you want to overcome the problems in the marital relationship, both parties will need to recognize their role in the distress. Blaming the partner for the current troubles only deepens the pain and severity of the brokenness.

 Tip Two: Seek solutions to problems that are built on compromise and allow for an equal sharing of the sacrifices needed to right the ship. Solutions that highly favor one partner over the other create alienation and emotional distance.

Arguments are bound to happen in a marriage. The best way to deal with them is to set a time apart to sit and talk over the problem or argument and understand each other's point of view and coming up with a solution to get back and be intimate.

Problems due to differences will happen in a marriage. Understand that you both are from different places, cultures, perspectives, idealogies and will have differences. Acknowledging these differences are very important. Try to work around these differences and live with them.

While the other person vents out their frustration or anger or disagreement, stop and listen to it. Half the problem gets solved if the problem is heard. Once heard, address the problem and fix it without building up the argument.

If things go out of hand where both of you are not able to fix the problem, try to go to a counselor who will objectively view the problem and understand who ois wrong and come up with solutions that will make the relationship stronger again.

Spend some time apart. I'm not advocating separating, but sometimes couples need time to themselves to see the issues clearly.

If you are having marriage problems related to your faith, then talk to someone at your place of worship. If they are separate from your faith, seek out a marriage counselor.

All marriages – even successful ones – have problems.  The trick is in knowing how to deal with everyday issues so that they don’t become bigger troubles.  Communicating when there’s a problem is always good advice, but beware how you communicate an issue to your spouse.  Set aside time each week to discuss larger issues that may be ongoing or take a lot of work, and check in with each other every day to clear the air.  Show concern for your partner’s concerns as you share your own, and remember that you are a team.  You must work on fixing your problems together.

When dealing with problems in an Islamic marriage, some basic rules apply.
·        
Forgiveness is divine.  Do not hold onto your irritations.  Be ready to forgive your spouse for minor issues.  This must be done in your heart, and it does not mean you can shame your spouse later on because you were so “forgiving.”
·        
Do not use bad language.  Harsh words and foul language make problems worse.  Refrain from using them in anger at your spouse.
 ·        
Man is weak and needs guidance from Allah.  Be sure you are faithful in your heart and seek help from Allah.

~~You are going to fight and arguments will happen inside a marriage. Do you want to fix it? Set some time for this and sit over it and talk about it. Nothing beats a conversation to come to solutions that ward off problems. Get intimate after this.
