Red flags are generally warnings. They could be found at the beach or a marina and they will tell swimmers and boaters about certain risks that are evident. People can pay attention to them when they want, or they can ignore them at their own peril.
You’ve been dating this guy for over 2 years. During those first months everything was awesome. You couldn’t get enough talking to him on the phone, couldn’t wait for the next date, the next time you could see him, and you drove your girlfriends absolutely crazy talking about him.
Marriage is not easy. No matter what big dreams you may had when you were young or how practical you thought yourself to be, there are bound to be disappointments and heartaches. At times these are too harsh to adjust to but those are extreme circumstances. The course of everyday life you will realize that communication and compromise make the bulwark of a strong relationship. That being said there are some rules attached to these aspects, the compromise cannot be from one party while the other takes advantage forever. You cannot expect things to be right or go as they are without some positive changes.
Nobody, and I mean nobody enters into a relationship expecting things to fall apart. You get involved with the other person because you assume that things are going to last a long, long time. When most people tend to look back on their past failed relationships, they can usually learn a lot about and from them.
It might be tough for some women to even think that men are trained to hate them, but when you realize the way roles are defined, how movies portray women and relationships, and more, you can easily recognize some of those same perceptions within yourself.
What makes a good marriage, great mutual understanding or great compromise? Probably a bit of both and this is interspersed with all those fights that can quite liven up things. But there are times when things can come right down to who’s right and who is acting like an idiot. Some things are sacrosanct and neither gender will bend but for others, it is probably safe to say that the female of the species is wiser. If you don’t believe me take a look at these instances where the wives are always right.
When you comes across a couple who have been together for 50 years you feel amazed. You think of your grandparents and wonder how they did it. Marriage is the most wonderful experience and yet can be so hard to maintain at times. The initial days are rose tinted for most of us but as we grow older and the practicalities take over, romance tends to take a backseat. Very soon we are burdened with responsibilities and are sniping at each other all the time because it is all so overwhelming. Now fights and arguments are what make a marriage normal otherwise you will be residing in a dead zone!
Fights are an inevitable part of any good relationship. Some people tend to think that when two people are in love (truly in love), then they shouldn’t have any need to quarrel and fight. How naïve.
Everyone needs a hobby. Or two. It’s the best way to maintain independence, whether it’s from parents or your partner. For women, there are so many things from which to choose that it’s almost natural to have many different interests.
In this age of globalization long distance relationships have become quite a norm. People who balked at the idea even a few years ago have accepted the fact, while millennials take in their stride all the time. The distance is also quite a large one for it’s no more just a job in another city; it could very well be a three year stint in another country. You may not be able to take off for the weekend as easily which means longer separations. It is not just about time and distance but a lot of money as well which, let’s face it, can be hard to shell out all the time. So will your relationship last in face of such challenges?
Breaking up is hard to do, or so the line goes.
It’s true and anyone who has been in a relationship for more than a few months can testify to that. If you’re on the wrong end of the breakup, meaning your ex is the one who ended it, then it can be even more challenging to overcome.
