The 4 C’s That Can Help You Save Your Marriage
By Irina Tveritina
It is very discouraging to see the number of failed marriages in the world today. Most divorces are very messy and are very traumatic for the people involved.
There are 4 C’s that can help you to save your marriage today:
We will take a look at each one of these to see how they can benefit your marriage today.
These things are easily obtained and make up the ingredients for a successful relationship.
Communication is an essential tool for any relationship. Open and honest communication is required for a relationship to have a good foundation. Communication skills can actually prevent a lot of problems that many marriages face. Communication is much more than what we speak. Communication is mostly about listening. The more we learn to listen to what our partner is saying the more we are allowing communication to be a positive force in the relationship. Communication is also about body language. Often it is not what we say but how we say it and our body language is all about how we say it. Body language often speaks louder than the words we say.
Compromise is something you learn to do and you learn to do it by simply doing it. Making decisions within the relationship that is mutually acceptable is compromise working at its best. Self centered behavior has not room in a marriage or relationship. When it comes to your partnership you should prefer your partner’s wishes. When both partners demonstrate compromises both get their fair share of the work, joys, fulfillment and satisfaction that the relationship can bring.
To accomplish anything in life it takes commitment and marriage is no different. Marriage vows are built upon commitment. This is the foundation upon which the relationship must be built. Without commitment it is like buying a car and driving it until the gas is gone and then sending the car to the junk yard because it doesn’t go anymore. The car was perfectly fine it just needed to be filled with gas. Your marriage may get to where it isn’t going anywhere but it is not time to go to divorce court. It is time to make sure it is filled with commitment and then you can take your relationship to the next level.
Counseling is necessary in some situations to assure the marriage is given the best opportunity to survive some of the challenges that can occur. If you see signs of trouble in your marriage getting counseling is a step you should consider to help save your marriage.

Really good and memorable 4Cs. I love it when the author gives a strategy to remember the article by. Communication, Compromise, and Commitment all come into play. And there may be Couples Counseling also.
