There's a lot to learn from marriage. Most couples marry in their twenties, but that doesn't mean they're ready to shoulder the burden. Marriage necessitates a few concessions on both partners' parts. Marriage always teaches something, whether it's how to raise children or manage work at the office. There are lessons you will learn when you actually get married, no matter how much marital education you receive before getting married.
1. Sacrifice is unavoidable.
We used to think that we'd never compromise when we were young. But married life teaches you to be wise, and you realize that no one can get by without making sacrifices in this world.
2. Space is very important
Don't take your spouse's friends and family away from each other. You aren't the only one who is smitten with them. Even if you're married, you're still two people with different interests, so it's fine to continue to "do you" after you've tied the knot.
3. Your traits are what makes you loveable
It's not always true that opposites attract, and it's also not always true that you should marry someone who looks exactly like you. Alternatively, you may become a business partner with them. In life and in relationships, we need each other's eccentricities and oddities. We are not divided by our differences. They make us feel as if we don't have anyone else to rely on.
4. You don't have to keep score
We're talking about marriage here, not a friendship or a business partnership. When you are married to the other person, you do not have to keep score. When two people are married, things like "If you do this, I should do that" don't exist. There will be moments when you must go the additional mile for your partner, and if you keep score, someone in the relationship must lose that way.
5. Courage to resolve is the key
Fairytales are meant to be seen on the big screen. Marriages in real life face challenges that, if not addressed maturely, might undermine the partnership. The skill to handle issues without causing havoc in the relationship is required.
6. Your joy will be snuffed out if you compare yourself to others.
It's easy to feel like your marriage stinks in this day of edited facades of other people's lives online and elsewhere. It's as though you're being swarmed by the Joneses. It will deprives you of happiness. Others will always have more; don't compete with them.
7. Not everything in marriage is rosy
Marriage is always depicted as a rose without thorns in romantic films, and they always finish with the line, "And they lived happily ever after." The truth is that you will have doubts about your love for your lover at times. You'd discover that there are times when you'll have to dig deep to save your relationship.
8. Forgiving is vital
For the sake of your marriage, marriage will educate you to forgive. Because your partner is human, he or she will undoubtedly make mistakes. Instead of attempting to shift blame, marriage would teach us to seek for forgiveness when we wrong our partner.
9. Victory is won by love.
It's possible that this list will go on for miles. I didn't include things like being honest, scheduling dates, or complimenting your spouse. But no amount of lists will save your marriage if it isn't based on love. Love always triumphs in the end. It has the power to defeat everything. It puts an end to any uncertainty. It overcomes apprehension. It evokes a sense of greater significance. The victory is won by love.
