Here are some of our favorite lines:
“I strongly recommend that best friends fall in love. Good times will be had by all.”
“You don’t marry to make yourself happy, . More than that, your marriage isn’t for yourself, . Not just for the in-laws and all of that nonsense, but . Who do you want to help you raisethem? Who do you want to influence them? Marriage isn’t for you. It’s not about you. .”
“No true relationship of love is for you. Love is about the person you love.”
Every couple has to work hard on their relationship to keep it as healthy as possible. When it comes to marriage, there are some red flags you should never ignore.
Alert: Lack of Communication.
If you and your partner don’t share your daily ups and downs, this is a very serious sign of lack of communication between you two. So try discussing your updates, emotions and thoughts with your partner, to help you resolve future issues. E-mails don’t count here!
Alert: Building Walls.
Distancing yourself from your partner when you disagree or fight is never an answer. Ignoring and distancing yourself will only make communication and reconciling more difficult. Instead, try and express how you feel calmly and listen to your partner’s opinion with an open mind.
Criticism isn’t always a good thing, it is the way you do it that affects your partner and vice versa. There is a limit when it comes to criticizing your partner, try turning your criticism into advice instead.
