Having a happy and fulfilling marriage takes more than love. Many couples fail to realize this which is partly why the divorce rate continues to rise. One of the biggest contributors to failed marriages is stress and there are many different forms this stress can take. When stress in a marriage is causing problems it is important for both partners to take a step back and look at how they can fix the problem rather than allowing it to destroy their marriage.

Stress in a marriage can arise from any number of issues including finances, household responsibilities, or old hurts that have not been talked about. This article will discuss some of the most common causes of stress in a marriage and what you can do to help alleviate them and get your marriage back on track.

Probably the largest contributing factor to stress in a marriage is financial troubles. When there is not enough money to pay the bills or get the things that you need to live it can cause an enormous amount of stress. It can also lead to blaming, shaming or arguments that can slowly eat away at a marriage. When financial troubles strike it is important to sit down together and work out a solution in a calm and rational manner.

Together you should discuss your options, various ways you might be able to eliminate the financial problem, changes you can make to your budget or a plan of how you are going to deal with not having enough money. It is important not to try to assign blame during this phase or make either partner feel guilty or like they are not contributing enough. By working through financial problems together neither partner will feel that the financial responsibility is all their own or that they are being left out of the decision making.

Another large contributing factor to stress in a marriage are everyday household responsibilities. This usually becomes an even bigger issue in a marriage once children are part of the equation. Tasks like cooking, cleaning, taking the kids places, and laundry are all time consuming. In order for a marriage to work it is important to share in these responsibilities together. No one partner should have to do it all or they will begin to feel put upon and under appreciated.

If you are feeling overburdened with household responsibilities you should let your partner know and talk with them about how to alleviate that stress. Remember to talk in a calm fashion without blaming or implying that it is the other person's fault. Try talking about your feelings rather than what your partner did or didn't do.

Old hurts can last a long time if they are not talked about and can cause stress in a marriage. If your partner did or said something to hurt you long ago (or even recently) you need to talk with them about it and let them know how it made you feel. Often times people make mistakes and say or do something stupid that they don't even realize has hurt you.

Rather than harboring feelings of resentment over it, talk with them about how they hurt you and how what they said or did made you feel. They will get a better understanding of how not to hurt you in the future and you will feel better after having talked about it.

Try These Stress Reducing Techniques to Keep Your Husband From Cheating

Do you want to keep your husband from cheating? There are things you can do that will make that a much more likely outcome in your marriage. In fact, reducing stress is one of the most important factors for preventing cheating from your husband.

Don't sit around trying to figure out ways to convince him for a second chance. Try these stress reducing techniques for powerful results you can both enjoy. The sooner you get started, the better.

1. Give each other a massage. Giving and receiving works great especially when done in equal quantities. That way neither of you feels as though you're getting the short end of the stick. How does this help? If you're asking that it's been too long since you've had a massage. All joking aside, massage does more than reduce stress and ease muscle tension. It's also a way to connect, bond, and touch your partner in a manner that isn't completely sexual in nature.

2. Laugh together. The family that laughs together stays together. Find plenty of laugh about with your husband and you'll be laughing your way into your very own version of happily ever after. More importantly, if he is happy and laughing at home (or out on the town as the case may be) with you he won't have the time or the inclination to go out and look at, much less for, another woman. Visit a comedy club, tell funny stories, watch funny movies, or laugh together over a fun game suitable for the family. Laugh often and laugh loudly.

3. Have sex. Have lots and lots of sex. In addition to being good for your health, sex is good for your marriage. Recent studies have shown that couples who have sex a minimum of three times a week are less prone to infidelity and unhappiness in the relationship. It isn't a "cure all" solution but it can help put your marriage back on the right track. It's definitely worth considering if you have to count back or try and remember just how long it's been since you had sex with your husband.

There is no reason that your stress reducing efforts can't be fun for both of you. If you follow through with your efforts to reduce stress in your home for your husband you'll find that you're getting as much from the effort as you are putting into it - if not more.
