Marriages that are in danger usually lack the same basic tools that can make them work.
·        Good communication skills are essential for working out problems before they take over.  Practice using “I statements” and active listening to better understand your spouse and share your concerns.
·        Respect your partner’s feelings as you work through your own without blaming.
·        Avoid words like “always” and “never,” as in “You always do…” or “You never…”  These are “You statements” anyway, and are not likely to help.
If you treat your spouse like a member of the same team, working together instead of competing or debating, your marriage is likely to
improve quickly.

SHAW54 gave you a good answer. Good communication, respect and a strong will to fix the issues may be called the basic level for saving a marriage. Bare in mind that it takes two to fix a relationship! Talk with your spouse and search for a professional help if needed.

Pay good attention on possible signs of troubled marriage and you may not face the need of saving it.

Show love and respect to your partner. That's the first base. Respect his/hers personal space - that's the second. Be flexible, not moody - that's my number three basic step to saving a troubled marriage.

Good communication, love and respect can save a marriage. Both partners' efforts are needed as marriage is the union of two people. A marriage counselor could help you renew communication and guide you through the healing process of your marriage.

All great advice: comminication, respect, good conflict tools.  Solid accountability and mentoring can be useful too. Don't be afraid of counseling.   There's some great information here > http://www.growthtrac.com
