If you could ask a husband or wife what their worst fear is when it comes to their marriage, many would probably say their partner having an affair.
Affairs are not only a betrayal of trust and love, but of the respect you have for your husband or wife and the commitment you’ve made to them.
But what some couples fail to realize is that although that might be a legitimate fear and something to avoid at all costs, there are some underlying problems that arise before the affairs begin.

And some of these problems are so bad, if not discovered or prevented, can ruin your marriage.
Here are 4 problems that even the strongest of marriages cannot outlive unless they are corrected, or never done in the first place:
1. When you stop being partners
Your husband or wife is your partner. This means that all decisions that pertain to your lives should be made together, thought through together, considered together.
When you stop being a team is where problems can begin, because instead of feeling that you can trust and rely on your spouse to have each other’s best interest in mind, you will feel alone and that you have to fight about every little decision.
2. When you start to blame
Life has many ups and downs and so does marriage. Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for these problems, but the worst thing you can do is point the finger at each other.
When this happens resentment can start to build, another element that can only serve to deteriorate your relationship.
Understand when it’s important to take responsibility or hold back when you feel like you are right. Be willing to compromise and see the other’s perspective.
3. When you become self-centered
“What about what I want?” “Why do you not do as much as me?” “Why do I always have to take care of the hard things?”
We are all human, and can sometimes be susceptible to this type of “I” thinking, especially within our marriage.
The bad news is the more we start to think about “I or me” and less about “we or them,” the easier it is to diminish all the good things our spouses do for us on a daily basis, and again begin to resent all the things they don’t do.
4. When there is an addiction
The thing about addicts is that their addiction comes before anything and anyone else, even if that isn’t obvious to their husband or wife.
If this is the case, it is important to address and discuss as a couple, and to encourage the person with the addiction to seek professional help.
Ignoring the addiction or trying to force them to change is only going to drive a larger and larger wedge between you and your spouse, and can backfire very badly.
Marriage should be built on principles of trust, respect, love, and sacrifice.
If you take the time to work on building this strong foundation, other scarier marriage issues are sure to not plague you and your spouse.

Taking Care of Tomorrow’s Leaders Today – The itel, Lagos Food Bank Example
Waking up to a special meal or choice gift is the best feeling ever. Hundreds of children in Mushin, mainland Lagos, had a filling taste of this feeling for the October 1 st celebrations. It’s an experience they will remember for a long time.
Being one of the most responsible corporate citizens around, celebrating Independence Day was always going to be on the radar for itel Mobile. To make this possible and memorable, the brand got to work in earnest. The focus of the work was picking the best way to commemorate the 60th independence anniversary of the most populous black nation on earth.
The efforts soon paid off through an impact-driven partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative. With the arrangement, both partners considered a couple of activities capable of affecting communities positively and bringing smiles to people’s faces in Lagos. At the end of the exercise, taking care of children, the leaders of tomorrow, in the commercial city secured the highest votes.
With the decision, itel Mobile set about making this happen. Not surprisingly, the decision was
influenced by giving children the means to excel and prepare them for leadership and nation-building, for them to enjoy better life. For the good of their immediate family, community and the Nigerian society.
Idiko, Mushin, a suburb of mainland Lagos, was chosen as the benefiting community. And the partners strategically reached out to the beneficiaries, children and families, with gifts of love, care, happiness and support made possible by the itel Love Always On CSR initiative.
Over 1,000 families benefited from the gesture as well as 600 children, and each one of them received food packages to celebrate Nigeria’s 60 th Independence Day commemoration.
Speaking on the event and itel’s Love Always On CSR Initiative, Oke Umurhohwo, itel’s Marketing Manager said, ‘We wanted to mark this year’s Independence Day celebrations differently, and that is why we did something so momentous for our children. Children are the backbone of any longstanding community, and as such, we are proud to be able to give back and support them on their journey as leaders of tomorrow and for a better life.’
To meet the demands of the memorable event, 30 volunteers joined the customer-centric brand and the Lagos-based NGO to share smiles, and to convey just how important it is to love and take care of today’s children who will ultimately become leaders of tomorrow.
With the thoughtful activity, there are insights for everyone, from the government to citizens, on partnerships that are capable of making life better for children. Indeed, itel Mobile and the Lagos Food Bank Initiative have offered a great template on bringing this to reality.
