Be the forgiving person even if it is the 100th time that you need to take the initiative for warming up the marriage.  Let go of all the old grievances by elevating yourself with forgiveness.
  3. Try to solve your marital problems instead of squabbling about it. Adopt a problem solving approach rather than a complaining one and do your best to resolve the issues.
  4. After expressing openly about your problems, resolve to not repeat it. Be more concerned about your partner’s reaction to your bad behaviour, whether perceived or real.
  5. Find time for the two of you to be alone. Such time investment is essential for breathing new life into your relationship and letting go of the grievances.
  6. Be assertive without blaming your partner. Communicate openly about what you want changed in the relationship.
  7. If you are in a sexless and crumbling marriage, find ways to bring back the spark to your love life.
