When you consider the divorce rate in this country, it seems that failing relationships are the norm nowadays, and it is rare to find a couple that doesn’t have problems. However, this is not a reason to lose hope. There are many things that couples can do to rescue their relationship from the brink of oblivion.
Some of the suggestions you will find are tried and true methods, such as couples counseling, marriage counseling, spiritual counseling, and group counseling. However, there are other, less expensive ways to bring the spark back to your relationship. Having a couples massage, for example, or playing a game of truth or dare like you did when you were younger, writing to each other, and spending time in nature are just a few of the simple things that you can do.
In addition to these simple things, there are some that are more challenging. Setting aside time to talk deeply with one another, talking about boundaries that have been violated, identifying issues and people that are tearing you apart, and taking a class and learning together are other options that may help build closeness, but these are more difficult than just taking a walk in nature.
