Hi guys, Brad Browning here with another Mend the Marriage video. Today I’m going to cover 7 tips that will help save your marriage, even if there’s already been talk of a divorce.

Now, before we get started I’d like to introduce myself in case this is the first time you’ve come across one of my YouTube videos. As mentioned, my name is Brad Browning and I’m a relationship coach and marriage expert. I’m also known for my best selling Mend the Marriage program, which teaches folks like you how to rebuild your relationship with your spouse, and ideally save your marriage.

After watching this video, I encourage you to leave any comments or questions you may have in the section below. I always try my best to respond to all comments, so please go ahead and share your feedback.

OK, let’s get started. You know the saying, “first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes happily ever after”? End of story, right? Not quite… While it's true that couples relax a bit after they’ve said their vows and tied the knot, the reality is that they may also find themselves puzzled if their fairytale starts slipping away.

Many people think that marriage is about marrying the right person, so when things start to go wrong they begin to worry that they’ve accidentally married the wrong person. Although you do want to marry someone you’re compatible with, marriage has a lot less to do with marrying the right person than it has to do with doing the right things with the person you married. In other words, relationships are a constant work in progress. If your marriage seems to be rocky, try these tips to restore the happy connection that made you say "I do" in the first place.

Analyze Yourself

A common assumption is that it takes both partners to save their marriage. This seems reasonable, but it just isn’t true. Unless your spouse has truly and completely given up on the relationship, it is possible for you to make sufficient changes to save the marriage. Perhaps not immediately, but over time it’s inevitable that the unhappy partner will notice the positive change in your behaviour and will respond to it.

Whether you know it or not, you and your spouse communicate in a revolving stimulus, a response pattern if you will. This means that when you do or say something, the stimulus and your partner reacts, and then you react to their reaction, and so on. The same thing occurs when your partner says or does something… the two of you have built up a pattern of habitual actions and reactions over time.

Since a couple is comprised of two individuals, a change in the behaviour of one person will have an impact on the other, and therefore the entire relationship. When the stimulus changes, there will be a new, different response. That new response will elicit another new and different response. If this happens enough, a new pattern of behaviours will emerge. Assuming the new actions and reactions are positive, the relationship takes a positive turn.

For example, if you have developed a habit of being disrespectful towards your spouse, she will have developed some kind of reaction or coping mechanism. If you stop disrespectful behaviour, she won’t need to use her coping mechanism, and her reaction to you will chance.

  1. Relationships are more about doing the right thing than being with the right person. Golden advice. Both people have to try in the marriage. Also golden advice. My boyfriend has a lot of him time and his space. It’s so much space he’s pushed me right out of his life. We see each other for 30 mins in over a week. How can I get him to change this?

    1. I think I’ve just answered your concern on the previous/the same video with you asking similar issues in that comment, so please refer to that. 🙂

    2. We have been fed about the concept of “soul mate” for decades. There is no such thing as soul mate. Except when a person is so experienced in life that can do the right thing almost all the time.

  2. I am fighting for my marriage right now. There is a breakdown in our communication and my wife has said that she does not want to fight for the marriage anymore but her action still show that something is there. Because she makes efforts to come and be with me and she still lets me hold her and spend time with her. I think she is drained and tired of the same cycle of things being good for a while and then going back to us fussing again. Can you help? I need all the advice I can get

    1. Markeda Johnson infidelity is a tough one, yet human can overcome anything in my experience. How is he facing his responsibility toward this infidelity? If he wants to man up that’s a start. It also depends that his infidelity was based on what? Is it his character or he Was drunk for example. Rough road a head. If you got kids, then more effort is required. If not then it is easier to pull the plug. Not that I am saying to do it.

      Trust is important but it can be broken. But can be rebuilt. Also your age and how long you have been together is important.

  3. Thank you!! Just when I was about to give up I decided to look up marriage counseling then you popped up and this is just what I needed!!

    1. Glad to be of help! 🙂 These may help: http://y2u.be/WU0yhd3ADXU and http://y2u.be/W_vzHFqnasM but it’s really challenging for me to know where to give you a headstart, knowing only so little of the situation… Sign up for my Mend the Marriage coaching program so I can help take a look at all the other factors at play and find out what’s really going on, monitor your situation, and guide you on a regular, ongoing basis at www.marriageguy.com/coaching

    1. Sarah Pellor,
      As a mom myself who is separated, please remember your parents love you & will always be your parents no matter what happens. My son is very young & I always tell him how much his dad & I love him. I’m praying for you and your family 👼 Take good care of yourself & enjoy being a child.

    2. sarah Pellor you are brave to search for solutions at this age. Ask them to try to watch this or seek help. I don’t know how old you are. But you are brave. I am wondering if you are the only child?

    1. If your ex has depression, the most loving thing you can do is to give each other space while she gets help. Encourage your ex to seek treatment because clinical depression is something only a therapist specializing on this can handle, even this is outside of my scope. But I can help you how to handle things on YOUR end as you go through this difficult ordeal. I know it can be incredibly tough knowing you’ve given it your best shot, yet your partner still fails to appreciate it or is breaking up despite it being a good relationship. Anyway it’s a bad idea to be friends with an ex. Consider signing up for my coaching program so I can help assess your situation clearly, look at all the other factors at play and see things you might have missed, then guide you accordingly on a regular, ongoing basis at http://www.breakupbrad.com/coaching

  4. Good advice. Hard to practice some. Especially #7. How can you let the grudge go when painful words haunt your memory?

    1. Whn u try the other things, that has been advised… keep doing that … gym, self, job, kids… pretend you are happy… go out of your territory more often… park… don’t sit n sulk… whn u free yourself a bit… it will happen. If u keep looking the mirror, n see if u can forgive then it may never. Divert u mind.. initially just pretend then work on all the advices. You will be fine, n be able to forgive too… by deciding not to forgive is like hoping…. to hurt someone else by consuming poison. The person who is most foolish n hurting is we ourselves, whn we r not able to forgive. Or let go of grudge…Or bitterness… the anxiety will kill us n effect our time with children. They see a sad mother, insecure present n future. And a fear for life.

    2. Sirisha Srikanth Almost nothing is real. Real is what you make it. If you run a 3 mile in 25 minutes and then ice cold shower, your feeling toward those same words will change. The endorphin in your system makes you see things differently. You can always rewrite how you perceive words. You need to be in control.

  5. i just wanna say Thank you. first video on my search results and im so happy i here. keep it up Brad. we need more of this

    1. I appreciate the support. If it’s not too much to ask and if you haven’t done so yet, please like, share, and subscribe to my channel so you won’t miss any of my upcoming videos. I’d really appreciate it, too! 🙂

  6. This advice is by far the most useful I’ve come across, and holds a lot of value and meaning behind their words. Truly, these words of wisdom are sure to revive and save any marriage from fall apart, so long as both partners are willing to comply and cooperate in a civil manner. Thank you so much for creating this video. Much respect, Brad.

    1. Well I just joined the program. I hope it works, but he is pretty rigid and stubborn. Im glad I found your tips because I almost wrote a begging letter. I am hurt that he has removed his ring, but i havent said a word.

  7. Hardest part of every marriage, in my opinion, is stepping back and analyzing yourself before anyone else
