Marriage is a relationship on a much higher level. People usually think that this is almost the same as a relationship and that they will have the same amount of freedom like they have when they were dating. Yeah right, the same amount of freedom. That is why there are a lot of divorces. The key to marriage is that you now need to focus on your life as a couple and not just only as a couple. You need to focus on your partner a lot more. First of all, it is expected to go out and visit your friends as a couple, and that is a normal thing. Of course, when the other partner is working or being sick and can’t make it, then sure, you can go alone. But to have a normal marriage, you need to act as a married couple.
The next thing you need to do is forget about going out solo or with your friends. Forget about those situations where you meet a hot girl or a guy, and you start flirting and going nuts. Game over ladies and gentlemen. It is time to act like a grownup. Your maturity needs to tell you that you are not a teenager anymore. You need to act like an adult. You have a partner that is waiting and taking care of you back home. Respect that. It is very important.
Be gentle and loving
Always be gentle towards your partner. Always help around the house and try to be supportive. This means a lot to for them. The only thing in their life is you. You are the foundation of your relationship, your marriage, don’t break it!
You need to realize that you are in a marriage, you are not a teenager. Start acting like an adult and talk. Talk a lot with your partner. No lies or hiding things under the carpet. Be honest and always tell what’s on your mind.
