4 things no one tells you about life after marriage
Years into the marriage, you get to realise many things that change your perspective about relationships, marriage and emotions.
The honeymoon phase in your marriage may seem to be the most perfect and magical moment with your spouse but with time, as the excitement withers, you learn realistic lessons in your marital life.
So, here are some common beliefs of marriage that change once you enter your marital life.
1. It won’t be always passionate and thrilling
At the beginning of a marriage, a couple experiences enthralling moments with one another, where each moment is exciting and thrilling. But as time flies by, it loses the initial, thrilling spark which is quite alright.
2. There will be tough conversations about money
Many couples believe talking about money and financial aspects is easy. On the contrary, it isn’t. Money includes power and position and it can cause huge disagreements between couples. Partners find it awkward and difficult to talk about financial stability and so, many end up not giving their honest opinion about budgets, savings, expenditure etc. This also leads to a lot of miscommunication.
3. It’s alright if your kids aren’t always the top priority
Children definitely make a marriage stronger but you shouldn’t have to depend on them for your marriage to strive. You should understand and accept the fact that one day, they will have a life of their own and then, you and your partner will have to carve your own path. It’s alright if you prioritize your partner a bit more than your kids at times because even they need to feel loved and appreciated.
4. It’s a whole new level of teamwork
Your marriage is a whole lot different than the assignments you had to do as a team in college. Marriage requires efforts, support, huge understanding and trust. Believe it or not, love although being one of the most important things, actually comes after trust and understanding. You have to be a strong team, especially in difficult times when you have to forsake your individual opinions and come to one decision. Remember, it’s always ‘you and me versus the rest of the world.”
