When you got married no one told you how difficult maintaining your marriage would be. In fact, marriage problems is the last thing you were worried about, because living happily ever after is what you expected from your marriage.
This misconception is what leads many people to be less equipped with the knowledge and skills to deal with the unavoidable problems that arise in a marriage.
Every marriage has problems, so do not believe there is a married couple out there that lived their own lives without a bump in the road. However, successful marriages learn how to deal with these problems head on, while other marriages leave these problems to be solved on their own. If you leave these problems to get solved on their own, they will only keep getting worse.
So my advice for minorities in trouble is to deal with these problems in your relationship head on. It will take motivation, courage, and effort to successfully accomplish this, but the reward will be well worth it. Especially when emotions are involved, solving the problems in your marriages may include hurt feelings. No one wants to get their feelings hurt, but this is the only tactic that will transform a troubled marriage into a happy marriage.
You do not lack the motivation if you love your partner, but you might lack the courage to face these problems in your troubled marriage. No matter what problems you have in your marriage you can not avoid them, you have to face them. So take my advice and reach down deep inside yourself and let the love you have for your partner give you the strength you need to face your problems instead of watching them ruin your marriage.
