Marriage is definitely not easy, but then again, it’s not as hard as the world depicts it to be. You take two totally different people and put them together, there’ll definitely be some good times and some bad times as well. Despite everything, the main point is, you loved each other enough to say those eternal vows so you should be willing to see them through.
Marriages today go through the worst experiences possible. Most couples fight vehemently within the first year. Couples tend to fight due to financial constrains mostly. Why? This is because they went into marriage without working out a financial plan about expenditure and saving. Financial arguments arise from individuals overspending or refusing to share their incomes because they continue with the same lifestyle they had before marriage. Another cause for problems is neglect. Most couples complain of love dying’ after a while. Love does not die, it just stops burning as brightly as it used to because partners tend to relax and lose the spark between them. Another reason for marriage problems is irresponsibility. Irresponsibility leads to infidelity, poor spending of family money, poor care of kids and such. Irresponsibility also brings the rise of the blame game every time something goes wrong. Marriages also break due to couples’ inability to share details about events in their life.
Couples should properly plan their finances before getting into marriage or as soon as they get married. This will help them know how to spend and save their money. It will also help them work out a good contribution policy to family money. When it comes to love, spouses should know that it should be rekindled ever so often for it to stay alive. Both parties should appreciate their partners and do those little things that make them feel special. Remember what made you two fall in love and all the things you used to do then try to keep up with the same. Children and work should not be an excuse to hinder this. Couples should be able to take responsibility of their actions. Admit your wrongs and correct them as soon as possible and you’ll definitely enjoy a healthy relationship. Communication is key in any relationship. It will help you grow and support each other through everything.
Most people get into marriage without understanding the fundamentals that surround it. With marriage being a union between two people, it requires the efforts of these two people for it to flourish in all aspects; financially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. Give as much as you get should be the motto. With this, couples will always strive to do the best things for their partners and family as well. Marriage should not be portrayed as a burden, quite the contrary, it’s a beautiful experience when done properly. It gives you the love of your life to spend an awesome eternity with, children to love and cherish and a new family to support you. Define your own love and always strive to make your marriage a success.
