So you are going through a tough time in your marriage? Recognize that others have been through rough times long before you. With this awareness in place, also recognize that folks have developed and tested interpersonal tools long before you. These tools, like counseling, active listening, exercise, and meditation can be used by you and your partner to create safe spaces for dialogue, rest, and a restoration of intimacy. Talk to friends who have been able to manage rough stretches in their marriage. What can you glean from their ability to manage and overcome the tough times?
