One of the greatest threats to marriage, and one of the greatest hopes, to most marriages is communication. Although a marriage in trouble is upsetting, it can often be repaired more easily than you think. Happy couples have high standards for each other. The most successful couples are those who, even as newly weds, refused to accept hurtful behaviour from one another. Low levels of tolerance for bad behaviour in the beginning of a relationship equals a happier couple down the road. Happy couples have learned how to exit an argument, or how to repair the situation before an argument gets completely out of control. You must work on HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR MARRIAGE so that you can work effectively on your relationship. MindYourMarriage is a useful website which helps you in this issue. Do not believe the lie that your marriage is too far gone and that it would be better to start over with someone new.
