Is it too late to fix my marriage?

Sarah - posted on 11/30/2011 ( 1 mom has responded )




Almost 5 years, with a 2 1/2 year old daughter. We hit a lot of rough patches in a small amount of time and now all we do is fight! I want to end things sooner rather than later for the sake of our daughter. I dont want to end up hating eachother....I dont know what to do anymore! He was the man of my dreams, and after filling for bankruptcy things got really rough. I love him to death but im no longer in love with him :( And im sad all day!

Any helpful feedback?

Try marriage counseling, so the two of you can learn to discuss rather than argue. In most marriages there are ups and downs. The "in love" feeling, with butterflies and all of that, often only lasts a few years, but it should be replaced by loving each other and working as a partnership. Everyone goes through hardships, but the fact that you have each other should be a tool you can both use to keep your chins up. You can get another job, rebuild your credit and your savings, move somewhere else, but you cannot replace the bond between two people who love each other and support each other.

See if you can talk him into counseling as a joint effort - tell him you love him and want to rebuild your relationship. If he won't go, then you go on your own - it is amazing how much one person can do to improve a relationship when they understand why the fights happen.
