3 Little Mistakes That Could Cost You Your Marriage

Little Mistake #1
Not Hearing Your Spouses Plea For Attention

With many responsibilities pulling at us each day, it
is easy to fall into a routine of life that may not
include nurturing our relationship with our spouse.

As we fulfill our responsibilities at work, in our
community and with our children, we may not always save
some of our time and energy for our spouse. When this
happens, our spouse will usually make a subtle plea to
be notice and nurtured. If this subtle plea goes
unnoticed, they may even make a more direct plea for

If we assume that they know we love them and continue
to spend our time and energies on these other efforts,
we are sending a very clear message that these other
responsibilities are more important to us than our
relationship with our spouse.

It's critical to let our spouse know on a daily basis
that we value our life and relationship with them.

It can be as simple as making sure they always get a
passionate kiss on their way in and out of the house
with a heart felt "I love you". However, it will also
require making a conscious effort to include them in
our busy life.

After all, our job, community efforts and children will
only be a part of our life for a defined period of
time, whereas our spouse will be with us for a life-
time. Keep your priorities in order, and you will go
far in avoiding "Little Mistake #1."


Little Mistake #2
Sharing Intimate, Personal Information With Someone
Other Than Our Spouse

In many cases, the first step down the path of
infidelity starts with individuals sharing intimate
personal information with someone other than our spouse
on a regular basis.

Either party could mistake this for feelings of
intimacy, and secrecy only encourages this intimacy to
grow. Personal, intimate discussions should be
reserved for our spouse, it is only there that we will
receive the best counsel from someone who deeply loves
us and has our best interests as the heart of their


Little Mistake #3
Harboring Ill Feelings About Your Spouse

There is nothing wrong with having less than loving
feelings about your spouse when you've had a major
disagreement. However, there is something wrong with
harboring those ill feelings to the point of harming
your relationship.

If these feelings are fed, they will grow into being
critical about every aspect of our spouses
imperfections. Following those times of disagreement,
help yourself to calm down by reminding yourself of
your spouse's many positive traits and you'll be
surprised at how easily those loving feelings return.

By avoiding these "3 Little Mistakes", your marriage
can remain strong and vital for a lifetime.
