When a marriage is struggling, couples may feel like their relationship is doomed. After all, why would anyone stay in a marriage that’s so difficult? However, it is possible to rebuild your love and connection and make your marriage even stronger than before. Marriage takes work. You have to be intentional about it if you want it to thrive. Most people don’t believe this when they get married. They think that marriage comes naturally and all they have to do is show up and romance will flourish by itself. If you’re in a marriage where things aren’t as rosy as you would like them to be, there are ways to improve things again with just a little effort from both of you.
