Don’t let your marriage go down the drain because of a mistake you made! Here are a few simple things that could ruin a happy marriage:
- Taking yourself too seriously — A relationship or marriage is a happy, fun, humorous thing. Life is going to pile a lot of crap on your head, and you’re going to be overwhelmed unless you can learn to laugh at yourself, your partner, and the crappy situations in which you find yourself. Find the humor in life, and you can get through a lot of troubles without buckling.
- Mishandling finances — Money is one of the Big Four issues that all couples fight about. If you don’t handle your finances wisely, you can be certain that it will lead to serious problems in your marriage. Budget, save, and be wise with your expenses. You don’t have to be cheap or miserly, but don’t live beyond your means either. Find a balance with your money!
- Nagging –– If there is one thing guaranteed to wear away at the happiness of a marriage, it’s nagging. You can encourage your partner to do something, but nagging is harping on the same thing over and over and never really accepting that your partner can handle things on their own. Learn when to push and when to leave them alone.
- Reading minds –– Is that REALLY what he meant when he said that thing? Does she REALLY want to make you unhappy just because you’re annoyed at her right now? You can’t read your partner’s mind, and you have no idea what their intentions really are unless they tell you. Making assumptions about thoughts, actions, and intentions can lead to serious problems in your relationship!
