Here are seven marriage mistakes that are so common, and so deadly.
If you want to enjoy prolonged marital happiness and peace, you must do all in your power to ensure you do fall into the following marriage traps.
*Being too serious*
I think more men are guilty of this. Yeah, we get it- you have to pay bills and house rent and all others, but that does not mean you should look so serious and stuck up all the time. Please loosen up a bit. No, loosen up a lot.
*Refusing to argue*
A married life without arguments might seem perfect, but when you reconsider it, it’s actually kind of creepy as it suggests that a certain lack of deeper communication, or pretence.
Yes, your spiritual head warned on your wedding day that a man is the head of the family and that a good woman is not meant to give her husband trouble in any way. This, though, is not what they meant.
Most likely, you will not like some things your spouse does, or some views they hold, which will lead to arguments, no matter how little once in a while.
Refusing to argue is most times equal to refusing to iron out some issues in your marriage. This is not good enough.
Little quarrels and squabbles are quite normal, even expected to happen once in a while in every marriage; but for everyone’s sake, please keep your disagreements behind closed doors.
*Never eating together*
If you have never eaten a meal with your spouse; or if you used to but not anymore, you should start it again. Couples should frequently find time to enjoy a meal together. It has the advantage of helping you develop communication and togetherness.
When most of your concentration shifts from your lover to your phone, the results can only be negative. Communication can fall by the wayside, your partner may feel neglected and neither of these things is good for your marriage.
*Sleeping in different beds*
This is a total no. Whether or not your spouse snores like a banshee, do not make the mistake of considering the option of sleeping in different beds.
It will cause to lose intimacy with your partner. No matter of how tough the fight is, do not give in to the temptation of staying off the bed.
Matter of fact, sleeping on the bed gives you a very good avenue to make up quickly, if you get what I mean. *wink
*Never making the first move*
This mostly concerns women. Even if your partner is usually the one who makes the move for sex in your marriage, don’t ever be afraid to switch things up.
This is one change that will add a lot of spice to your bedroom life [or wherever you prefer to often have sex.]
Same rule goes for other acts of displaying affection.
