No relationship can survive without compromises. If you want your relationship with your partner to work, you and your partner have to make compromises at times.
Inasmuch as compromises are important in a relationship, there are certain things women should never compromise in a relationship. It’s important you let your partner know about these things before you marry them. Your partner needs to know your stand.
Below are 5 things a woman should never compromise for a man
1. YOUR CAREER
A woman shouldn’t compromise on her career just because her man wants her to. Whatever decision you make about your career should be your decision. Your man should love you enough to respect what you’re passionate about and support you. A man who truly loves you won’t kill your career dreams.
2. YOUR BODY SIZE
It’s sad to note that so many husbands body shame their wives. I see men telling their wives what size she needs to be but they don’t think their wife should tell them what size they need to be. Just as a man’s body size is his business, your wife’s body size should be her business. You shouldn’t compromise your standards of beauty for a man. You should also note that if a man doesn’t love the way you look when they start dating you, you shouldn’t date him.
3. YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHERS
I see men tell their partner who they should be friends with and who they shouldn’t be friends with. A healthy relationship allows friendships that matter to you. It’s wrong for your man to ask you to quit a friend that has been loyal to you for years. It’s your decision to decide who you become friends with.
4. YOUR SELF-RESPECT
You shouldn’t compromise on your self-respect just to remain in a relationship. You shouldn’t be with a man who feels he is doing you a favour by dating you. Just because you feel your man is out of your league doesn’t mean you should compromise on your respect to be with him.
5. YOUR HAPPINESS
You shouldn’t sacrifice the things that make you happy like hobbies and experiences just to remain in a relationship. If you feel the need to suppress the things that make you happy just to remain in a relationship, then you are compromising too much.
