Marriages need help in every which way. After all it is two people who have decided to live under one roof without sharing a blood bond. There is no compulsion and no real loyalty from either to the other to take what two people can dole out to each other.

In bygone days, where the very thought of divorce was anathema to both parties, the partners suffered each other, tolerated each other or if there was no option decided to make the best of each other and either enjoy, tolerate, exist or suffer life as they chose to do so. Today, with divorce being just a lawyer away, that sense of going through with a commitment does not exist. When such a commitment is lacking from either partner, there is no compromise or ironing out of even minor wrinkles.

One remedy does not work for everyone. People often advise you to marry a friend, because the friend has seen you through good and bad and is bound to stick with you when the going gets sticky and stressful. Again this does not always work. People talk about great, healthy sex being the adhesive that makes a marriage last. Again, NOT FOR EVERYONE. Marriage Counselors are a huge bet for setting everything right. For those who have tried to drag a reluctant spouse to a counselor, it is a testimonial fact that that very exercise shattered the already tenuous hold that particular marriage held for the partners.

My personal take on this is that marriages can not really be helped unless both the people involved in it are committed to making it work. If the character of both spouses is complementary to each other, the chances are that they probably won't be part of this discussion, unless they are there to counsel. Marriages do need help and it is only the partners in the end who can help it survive; everyone else helping keep it together will only be a superficial force, because the couple is already reluctant to part from each other.

It is very common nowadays that both couples had to work for a family to sustain a more comfortable lifestyle in both Asian and western countries. It is always stressful to the lady where they had to prepare meals, handle house chores and taking care of the kid's homework after a hard day work. There is definitely less time spent communicating with your spouse and often lead to misunderstanding, arguments, and quarrel. In Singapore, we often search through the web to search for reliable house cleaners, laundry, food delivery to reduce the burden of the family. That is my 2 cents of advice we could outsource task and trade for more time is definitely worthwhile Very Happy
