Getting married is on almost everyone’s wish list; everyone wants to get married to their sweetheart and have a happy ever after with the spouse of their dreams.
Of course, it’s possible to live happily ever after, but that comes with a lot of understanding, togetherness and willingness to easily forgive and move on by both partners.
There are some things that happen in marriage that you probably never thought of before getting married.
Marriage comes with huge responsibilities for both the man and the woman. The transition from being single to being married is not one many people easily adjust to because of the extra responsibilities that come with the territory.
2. THAT YOU DIDN’T KNOW ALL ABOUT YOUR PARTNER
When dating, it is easy to think that you know your partner too well. Interestingly, you would be surprised that you didn’t really know all about your partner, and that there are many more things you still need to learn about that person when married.
3. HIDDEN FLAWS
Relationships and marriages are two different but related entities, and it wouldn’t take a relationship only to know all the flaws of your partner. By no means is anyone perfect; there are some hidden flaws your partner have that you didn’t even notice.
4. GET ANGRY THAT YOU REFUSE TO SLEEP CLOSE TO THEM
In the happy ever after picture, this is one occurrence many don’t picture, but it’s a scenario that pans out in many marriages. You could have an argument with your partner that would piss you off to the extent that you could decide not to sleep close to them.
5. LOVING YOUR PARTNER DURING THE DARK TIMES ISN’T REALLY EASY
The dark times might most likely come, though its frequency varies from couple to couple. When saying ‘I do’, thoughts of how loving your partner is probably serenaded your mind and thoughts of how you would never stop loving them for any reason. But when the dark times come, loving your partner at that time might just seem like the most difficult thing on earth.
6. FORGIVENESS MIGHT SEEM A BIT DIFFICULT
It’s normal to think that before marriage, you would easily forgive your partner when wronged — but would you? When couples get married, it dawn on them that forgiveness, as important as it is, isn’t all that easy.
7. TELLING YOUR PARTNER EVERYTHING ISN’T ALL THAT EASY
Married couples tend to tell each other those little white lies thinking it doesn’t matter. It probably does matter; no one loves to be told a lie.
8. YOU TEND TO FIND YOUR OWN HAPPINESS, AND THIS IS SELFISH
Sometimes, in a bid to find your own happiness, you could think selfishly or act selfishly. However, no one really acknowledges that they are selfish.
These are just some realities that happen in many marriages. But, who said marriage wasn’t a good thing?
