One of the last things that married couples would want to happen to their marriages is divorce. It is always the desire of married people to have kids in their marriages and grow old together until death do them part. However, due to one circumstance or the other, married people are forced into reaching the decision of parting ways.
In all honesty, it was never God's plans for married couples to go their separate ways in marriage after coming together to become one indivisible body. On the contrary, couples were meant to enjoy their marriages and not endure it. One may want to know what may have changed. One of the reasons why divorce happen in marriage is due to incompatibility that exists between husband and wife. Other times, it could be as a result of getting married for the wrong reasons.
Nevertheless, no matter what couples may be experiencing in their marriages, there are certain things they can do to save their marriages from hitting the rock. Among other things, married people should do the following:

1. Talk about your fears, worries, expectations, desires and everything with your partner.
Lack of communication among married people is one of the causes of divorce in marriages. Instead of couples to express their desires, expectations, fears and worries to their partners, so that they can talk about them and see how the challenges can be handled, some couples would ASSUME that their spouses already know what they should do. Gradually, the issues will be accumulating to the point that they won't be able to solve them. If couples timely communicate what they want their partners to do to make them happy, there won't be need for divorce because those things which they crave for will be taken care of by their husband/wife. Don't assume anything! Express yourself through a heat to heart communication.
2. Seek for the help of a professional counselor.

When couples begin to experience things that will threaten the peace and harmony of their marriage, they should not fold their arms doing nothing. There is need for them to reach out to professional counselors who will help them to know the root of their marital challenges through consultations. Afterwards, the counselors would give them ideas that can help them fix their marriage without it breaking apart. Don't forget that marriage counselors are to marriage as doctors are to sick people. Speak to a counselor when things are getting out of hand in your union. He/she will know what to do to restore your marriage.
3. Forgive your partner's shortcomings and collectively put in efforts to save your marriage.
Most times, most couples always want to file for divorce due to the ill treatment and lack of care they receive from their partners. To save your marriage from divorce, try to always forgive your partner of his/her flaws even as you collectively put heads together to make your marriage work. Don't forget that your husband/wife is not a perfect human. You should also try to balance things up by managing his/her weaknesses altogether.
4. Put whatever challenge you may be having in prayers.
When all your efforts to resolve certain issues in your marriages fail you, always remember to present your marriage challenges to God in prayers. Don't forget that He(God) is the founder of marriage; He knows how to gather the pieces of your marriage together to restore your marriage from going South. No matter how tough your marital challenges may be, He is able to make things turn around in your union.
Don't be in a hurry to opt for divorce in your marriage without doing the above listed things. A successful and blissful marriage is possible, and it can happen to you.
