Firstly, are both parties willing to admit that there are problems and are they willing to change if necessary? Will both people stop blaming the other one and start seeing themselves as a team, working to solve a problem? We can only ever change ourselves, so if we are unhappy about something, we should strive to alter our own bhaviour and attitude. And if we change, the situation will change. Another very powerful tool is to look for positive things in our partners that we can praise. As our focus shifts off the problems and the faults, and as our partner begins to feel appreciated, it will be easier to solve the problems.

Marital problems can be solved in a multitude of ways, but one key element is solid and vulnerable communication. Communication is the ingredient that will determine whether you will be able to work through the challenges at hand. To communicate well you must be able to truly listen to each other and dive into an intimate place which involves taking risks and trusting one another. For some couples it may take the outside perspective and participation of another person to help reach a resolution. All in all it will be a long process and deep rooted marital problems will not be solved overnight.
