No one said that marriage was easy. Having to share your life with someone has its own struggles. But, there are things to avoid in order to save your marriage.
Taking your relationship to the next level doesn’t always mean that everything in the relationship is perfect. Marriage is such a huge step to take with someone because you are both agreeing to share your lives together until death does you part. That promise, in and of itself, is a huge deal. There is nothing more serious than being monogamous for the rest of your life.
Just because two people are married, does not mean that they have the perfect relationship. Marriage is just a more serious version of a relationship, which is going to mean that these couples are going to have to face some rough times.
Some people say that humans aren’t mean to be with the same person for the rest of our lives, so why do we choose to do it? There is such a love and support system that most people crave and desire out of a marriage. Seeing someone you can raise kids with is no small feat.
With this being said, no relationship is perfect. We all have issues in our relationships, and we need to figure out ways to fix these. With marriage, it’s a little different because you can’t just simply break up.
There’s a legal matter and usually, a family is involved, too. If you want to make sure your marriage does not fail, then you need to avoid these five things.
Having a lack of communication is one of the worst things that can happen in a marriage. Things that are seemingly small, pile up on top of one another and snowball into something huge.
Something small like forgetting that you were supposed to meet for dinner at 6 instead of 7 could potentially be the last straw and could end up being a bigger issue than it should be.
Communication is something that seems so simple and easy, but feeling like you can’t communicate with the person you’re married to can end up being disastrous.
A lack of communication, or a lack of effective communication I should say, is something that can easily be worked out, but it takes time and patience on both sides.
There are going to be some days where you are going to hate everything your husband is doing. Even down to how he breathes is going to get under your skin and make you want to freak out.
You have to accept that these feelings are not always what you need to focus on. Just because your husband is annoying you by doing something, doesn’t mean that there aren’t a thousand things he does that you love.
No one is perfect, so why expect your husband to be? There are going to be things that you don’t like that your husband is doing, but you cannot forget all of the reasons why you decided to marry him in the first place.
We all have our own faults and relationships are all about taking the good with the bad and seeing how much you’re willing to handle.
Like I said, some days you’re going to hate everything about your husband, but you need to tell yourself that there are great things about him. You need to look for the good in the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with.
This is true in every relationship. There are certain things that we need to do to make us feel like we are loved. Some people need to constantly be told that everything is okay and hear that the person loves them.
Some people need quality time set aside with the person, while other people just need to see an effort. One of the reasons most relationships end is because they love people they way that they want to be shown themselves, instead of figuring out how their partner likes to be shown love.
Look at it this way, if you’re constantly asking the person you’re with if everything is okay in your relationship, the guy you’re with may feel annoyed when you keep asking because that’s not how he shows love. Maybe he shows love by getting you your favorite flowers out of nowhere.
This can work, but we need to start learning how to love people the way that they need love. So, if a person needs to be told they’re okay to feel secure in a relationship, her partner needs to understand that and give her that reassurance.
If the guy gives you things out of nowhere because they made him think of you, then that may show you that’s what he needs in order to feel love.
Just because you’re married, doesn’t mean that you always have to like the same things that your husband likes, and vice versa. You are two different people who happen to get along in other ways.
With this being said, if one of you tries to make the other feel like what they’re interested in is stupid, then that can make the person feel like the things that they like don’t matter. Down the road, this can make a person feel like they don’t matter at all either.
There comes a time when you need to learn that the fight is not worth it. All of these previous points have the capability of leading up to a huge fight, and maybe even a divorce. This is obviously something to be avoided, if the marriage is really worth it to you, that is.
It’s not all about who’s right and who’s wrong. You’re not always going to agree on things, and fights are going to happen because of it. But it is how you end the fight that is the most important. It isn’t worth losing a person because you’re too stubborn to admit that you may not have been in the right.
Marriage is not an easy thing. There are going to be times of hardships that are there to test your relationship, but it’s all about how you come around after them and really learn how to accept your partner for who they are that matters.
