"Mark 10:6 But from the beginning of creation, "God made them male and female." 7 "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh." So they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate."

Are you saving your marriage when a misunderstanding arises? You need to identify the source of the misunderstanding and then both of you should create an understanding between each other. Working on your issues is a better choice than making an emotional rush in making decisions that could cause both of you a lot of embarrassment and eventually hurt yourselves as a couple and your family.

As partners who are married to each other, you need to listen attentively to one another. Don't play with each other's emotions but take care for one another. Provide emotional support for your partner and let your partner also provide you with emotional support. Respect one another and establish boundaries.

Eight Tips for Saving Your Marriage

1.) Keep your emotions under control to the best of your ability but don't suppress them. Don't suffocate your partner with your desperation and seeking unnecessary attention. This only drives your partner away from you. Stay level-headed so that you're able to rationally deal with problems that are facing you and your spouse.

2.) Don't beg and belittle yourself in the eyes of your partner. You may indeed feel desperate and want nothing more than to beg your partner but that only makes you to look bad in your partner's eyes. Show the depth of your passion, your love and stay strong instead of begging as if you're desperate.

3.) Give your partner as much space as he needs and also take plenty of space for yourself. You need to give your partner space and let your partner give you space to meditate the past, the present and future. Time heals wounds. You should do things that make you feel good about yourself like shopping, spending time with your friends and family. Find activities that boost your self-esteem.

4.) Find common ground where you agree with your partner that makes both of you happy and to be contented with each other. Strengthen your relationship by nurturing it from where you had started and be willing to compromise. A marriage is supposed to flourish in good times and survive through the bad times. Love is the bridge that keeps the two of you connected. Never lose sight of your love for each other.

Show that you appreciate your partner for whom he or she is. Never take your partner for granted. Actions speak louder than words, let your actions speak loudly that you love and appreciate your partner.

5.) Make your partner to be your top priority and get to know him or her very well. Love and support your partner through good times and bad times. Show an interest in your partner's hobbies and work as this will help you in saving your marriage.

6.) Don't be a partner who keeps on complaining. Try your best to tackle problems when they occur other than complaining about them. Be open with your partner and allow your partner to freely discuss issues with you. Be strong and deal with whatever issues that arise rather than hiding such issues and procrastinating.

7.) Don't be jealous of your partner's accomplishments in his or her career. Jealous between spouses leads to serious problems in a relationship. Support your partner to be successful in his or her career and take pride in your partner's achievements.

8.) Don't be too aggressive. Stay rational in your thoughts and be calm during arguments although it may be difficult for you to do this. When you lose your temper, you find yourself saying words that are not appropriate to your partner. Always control your temper and pray to God to help you control your tempers.
