There are certain things couples don’t want to hear before or during marriage. These things are mostly to help you build a better relationship with your spouse and help you grow your home. Here are a few that can be of help.
1.You’ll fight a lot but it’s ok
Not every couple wants to know they’ll fight over silly things like who squeezed out the toothpaste from the middle or whose turn it is to lock up the house or turn off the lights. It happens in every marriage and it’s totally okay to have fights but there are limits. It’s how fast you recover from these fights that matter.
2.Pick your battles
You really do not want to spend the rest of your life fighting over silly and trivial things so pick your fights wisely. There are things that you can surely overlook unless they are recurrent other than that there’s no need to pick fights at every given opportunity.
3. Learn to forgive
Forgiveness is very important in every relationship especially in marriage, when you bottle up anger without letting go it causes problems in your marriage. You will never let it go.
4. Marriage is dirty and ugly
Relationships are about always looking good and smelling nice for your partner but in marriage, you have to get ready to live with your partners flaws. What if your husband does not have a good relationship with water? There’s nothing you can do about it but live with it.
5. You need to make conscious choices
You have to consider your spouse too. If your decision does not favor your spouse then it’s a selfish decision. Be conscious about your partner too.
6. You need each other
You have to be there for your partner because you need each other to grow.
7.You won’t be as cute
Those quirks and clumsy things that used to be cute may not be funny or cute anymore. They just get old and annoying sometimes but for better or worse right.
8. Communication is very important
You need to learn to communicate with your spouse and understand each other.
9. Talk about money
Money problems are going to happen whether you like it or not but you need to seriously talk on how to save money for your home or it’ll end up putting a strain on your marriage.
10.You’re married to the whole family
When you get married, you should understand that you are not just married to one person but the whole family so you need to treat every one with the same respect you treat your spouse.
11. You will need alone time
When you tell newly weds they will need some time on their own, they usually think it’s a joke or it’s not possible. Well, there are days you’ll need to be on your own just to unwind.
12. Your partner has to be your best friend
There is no other person that is worthy of being your best friend. Your partner is your best friend then all other friends can come after.
13. Jealousy is okay but deal with it
It’s okay to get a little jealous once in a while and it will happen but don’t let it control you. Deal with it immediately.
14. Never compare your marriage to others
There is no recipe for marriage. Every married couple has their own struggles and comparing your marriage with others is just going to cause a big problem for you and your partner.
