Everyone desires a good marriage, that special someone you can be free to share your big dreams with and as well as your weaknesses, failures, and shame. Someone to stand up for you when the world is against You. Some you grow old together, enjoying the body challenges that accompany old age.
All the above doesn’t come without a price. You may seem to know so much about your partner’s weaknesses.
AND IF YOU DO, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO BE BETTER?.
A good marriage is essential for a long and happy life, right? So, I really think that it’s very important for both partners to have understanding and patience for each other. Many relationship experts say that these 8 common mistakes are responsible for ruining most of the relationships:
- Expecting from your partner to change because of you
Ladies and gentlemen, one thing’s for sure – no one’s perfect! Well yes, and when you expect from your partner to change according to your wishes, you should know that it can cause problems in your relationship. And remember – even if the other person promises to change because of love, this doesn’t mean that it would be like you’ve imagined it to. There is a great possibility of other problems which can negatively affect your relationship. A word of advice – always accept your partner the way he/she is unless this is some serious bad habit.
- Always having to win an argument
Partners usually fight a lot to prove that they’re right. This is nothing more than the ego trying to dominate. But, it’s much better to say your point of view and come up with a solution to solve the problem.
- Allowing a third person to interfere
We can easily say that this is one of the most common mistakes that couples do! YES, and it doesn’t matter if the person is coming from the partners’ family members or friends. These people can make the problems even worse.
- Neglecting the emotional and physical needs of the partner
This is very important for you to understand – if you start neglecting the needs of your partner, he/she won’t also feel the need to satisfy your needs, and they will probably look for someone else to fulfill them. This can destroy your relationship.
- Disrespecting differences
You must understand that all people are different! So, it’s very important for you to respect the differences between you and your partner in order to keep your relationship healthy.
- Not accepting fault
Unfortunately, most couples tend to allow their egos to overrule and they oppose to accepting fault. But, there’s nothing wrong in saying “sorry”. You must learn how to accept when you’re wrong and offer your apology. And, if your partner really loves you, he/she will also learn to accept their fault.
- Lack of communication
Communication is very important for a successful relationship. This means that if you don’t speak to each other, you’re giving the advantage to silence and your relationship will suffer. Not communicating clearly and correctly will ruin trust. Always be detailed and clear. Let your spouse be the first to know, not your mom or best friend.
- Differences in opinion
And, one last thing – don’t rush into anything and always make decisions together. This will affect the lives of both partners and you should avoid making fast decisions that you might regret later.
