If you’ve been lucky enough to find someone that’s a right fit for you, why screw it up by getting married? Time and time again we see perfectly good relationships succumb to the pressures of marriage and just when you expect it to get better…boom!!! separation and then divorce.
The reality of most relationships is that things may work prior to marriage or when you’re living apart. However, when you’re living under close quarters, you may lose your identity in the drive to become one with your partner – leading to so many problems.
Four things that are known to ruin perfectly good marriages are:
MONEY!!! Do you maintain individual accounts or (in the spirit of oneness) operate a joint account where one person eventually gets screwed? Money has and always will be an issue between couples, especially when one earns a bit more than the other, or one spends excessively without due consideration to their partner.
YOUR FAMILY’S INPUT!!! Where is it written that your parents, friends or relatives should have a say or strong influence on how things are done or run in your home? When you take your family’s side over that of your spouse, you’re setting yourself up for failure.
