|Building a Happy Home - 5 things you shouldn't do in marriage|
When we were all younger, we read fairy tales about how a prince and princess gets married and live happily ever after.
In reality, happily ever after is tougher than you what you think - it takes a lot of hard work and genuine love for your partner to have a happy ending.
Here are five things you should not do in marriage if you want it to last long:
- Taking each other for granted: When your spouse does something for you, thanking him or her is the best way to acknowledge the deed. But gradually, couples tend to take each other for granted and this is the juncture where, each might think that its the partner's responsibility to grant favours. This is one of the things that leads to problems in marriage.
- Interrupting the other: A conversation must flow smoothly. That is an opportunity where both of you can give each other enough room to speak and express opinions. But sometimes, one spouse may interrupt the other and this will lead to frustration. Interrupting your spouse while they're speaking is rude and shows lack of respect.
- Gossiping about your spouse: When you have to talk about your spouse with others, it is good to speak only the good things. Talking ill about your wife/husband in front of others is a very big blunder in marriage. This is like letting the world know that you don't have any respect left for your spouse. This will sooner or later spoil things for you.
- Quarrelling in front of your children: The tender minds of your children may pick up bad qualities when you fight in front of them. Also, you are setting a bad example when you are doing. Children get affected in such situations and this is one of the things not to do in a marriage.
- Being disrespectful: During an argument, if you think that it is okay to use abusive language in order to put your point across, then it means you are disrespecting your spouse. Venting out frustration can be done gracefully without violence or abusive language. So, insulting each other can be avoided and disagreements can be resolved in a different way. Source: Pulse
