Is it possible to save your marriage alone?

Yes, it absolutely is!  When you start working on yourself, the light, the joy, the passion will naturally flow out of you to your partner, and he/she will begin to notice this change and want to give more to you.  It can take some time, but it can happen.  The other way is of course, to take a one day intensive or for the full monty, a full weekend intensive where you really kick start the relationship and reset it to the day you got married!  These intensives can be absolutely life changing when done in the spirit of love and joy.   For more information, you can read my article on here, "when is it Time to Call it Quits?   I wish for you a life filled with Gratitude, Abundance, and Passion!

Marriage is a partnership between two people.  In order for that partnership to succeed, it will require effort on the part of both people.  The only thing you can do on your own to save a marriage in crisis is talk to your spouse about the options for preserving the relationship.  You might suggest going to see a couples counselor or marriage and family therapist.  You could also prompt your spouse to talk about marital problems with you, even if therapy is rejected.  Once you have a better idea what the root problems are, you can work together to save the relationship.

There is no certain answer to this question, I feel, as it all depends on your current situation. If the imminent problem stems from you, then yes your sole efforts could help save the marriage. There is a saying that goes, 'We can't control others, and we can only control ourselves'. Sometimes a change in attitudes or behaviors from one person can drastically change a marriage for the better.

No, it takes the efforts of two people. If you are committed to saving your marriage, then you have to first convince your spouse to be on the same page as you and be supportive of the marriage himself before you can get anywhere near to the repair and recovery stage. Saving the marriage requires teamwork and mutual effort.

Absolutely not.  If the other partner wants out or wants other things while staying in the marriage, there is nothing you can do.
