What are the most unexpected ways of saving a marriage?

The most unexpected ways of saving a marriage are probably the very small ways which can make the biggest difference. Often we are looking for some big flash of lightning, but actually all that is needed is to light one little candle for the darkness to dissipate. These small things would include finding one way every day to tell your spouse why they are special to you and what you appreciate about them – basically being thankful instead of focusing on the negatives. Also to spend time together every day, even if it is just ten minutes, really making eye contact and connecting in a conversation in which you really want to know how the other is doing, and you listen carefully to their response.

I agree with Rycroft. We all think we need to make a big splash, but that is not true. I would begin by looking for something to praise your spouse for every single day. Tell them at least once a day that you love them. Hug them often. Kiss them when you leave each other's company and when you return. Remember the things that you loved about them in the beginning. They are still there, we just sometimes overlook them after a while.
