A Marriage Based on Respect
When two people decide to get married, there is no “I” anymore in the relationship. It has been changed to “we.” Both individuals have to decide together how to go through life by facing the good times and the bad.
Issues will come up and instead of sticking to one’s belief and ideas; the individual has to learn to make compromises to arrive at win-win situations.
A good example of showing the other person love and respect is understanding the point of view of that individual.
If each party feels differently then both parties can deal with it level-headedly.
Another way of showing respect is giving the person time to be alone.
Some issues cannot be resolved if the spouse has other things to think about.
The advice of marriage counselors is by asking the other person if it is a good time to talk. If it isn’t, then one should just wait until an appropriate time and repeat the request to talk.
If one person wants to do something, the other individual in the marriage should be consulted. Making plans without the spouse knowing will only create problems. In other words, “no surprises”.
A big issue that may break up the marriage is money. Even if there is division of labor in the household - one person earning the income and the other taking care of the finances, communication must be use to avoid financial problems.
A recent survey has shown that most couples are in debt.
Some people have spent more than is available from the day of the wedding itself.
By sticking to a budget or working with a financial consultant, the couple can be debt free in no time.
There will always be a period of adjustment when two people get married. Some people think that they know all about their partner but that person is often mistaken .
Talking openly to one another is the healthiest way to keep the marriage bond intact, even though it may not be smooth sailing all of the time.
Instead of criticizing or blaming the other for what has happened, both should work together to solve any disputes.
The couple will become stronger and will be more ready to face other situations.
