We bring into our marriage so many negative attitudes that could cause friction in our marriage. If you want your marriage to work, there are certain things you shouldn’t bring into your marriage.
Check them out below
1. Never get married to someone hoping to change them after marriage. Many marriages have failed due to this. If you think you can’t accommodate your partner’s flaws, don’t bother getting married to him or her.
If you want your marriage to be successful, focus on improving as a couple and quit trying to change your partner.
2. Avoid criticising your partner if you want a successful marriage. Give up the urge to criticize every thing your does or doesn’t do. Instead of focusing on your partner’s flaws, why don’t you appreciate the things you love about your partner.
3. Avoid the urge for a perfect marriage if you want a perfect marriage. There is no such thing as a perfect marriage because no one is perfect. When you stop expecting your partner to be perfect, you will begin to love your partner for who he/she really is.
4. Failure to accept responsibility for mistakes will destroy your marriage in the long run. Avoid blaming your partner for everything that goes wrong with you and accept responsibility for your mistakes.
5. The need to be right always won’t make your relationship successful. Your marriage would only work if you avoid the need to be always right and instead focus on making your partner feel loved and appreciated.
6. Don’t carry the emotional baggage of your past with you into your marriage. You have to leave your emotional baggage behind if you want to have a successful marriage.
7. If you want to have a successful marriage, you have to give up your controlling attitude. No marriage would succeed with that attitude. Marriage is between two partners and not between a master and a slave. The more you try to control your partner, the more you push your partner away from you.
8. You can’t have a successful marriage if you always compare your marriage to that of others. You should understand that no marriage is perfect. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
