Marital problems may be much harder to fix than they were to create. That’s because destruction takes much less energy than construction, and marriages can fall apart simply through neglect. To fix a marriage, one must pay special attention to the necessary foundations of any healthy relationship. These are not only love, but also trust and respect. Consider how you can show respect to your partner and how you want them to show respect for you in return. If trust is an issue, start working on that right away, since a marriage won’t survive long without it.

Before you can fix something you need to know how and why it is broken. When it comes to marriage, there are two people involved, and there are usually multiple circumstances and reasons contributing to the breakdown of the relationship. If one person is highly concerned and motivated to try and fix the marriage, while the other is not, then there is not likely to be much success. Both partners need to recognize that they need help and be willing to go to a marriage counselor or therapist who can teach them new and healthy ways of relating to each another.

I think the first step is to fix your mindset. If you have a bad attitude towards your partner, fix it. If you have spent years of your marriage neglecting your marriage, then fix that. When you start to take responsibility and realise what's your role in the marriage, then you will get the clarity and direction you need. If it's a specific problem, like intimacy, then making small changes in your behaviour can make a lot of difference.
