Everyone knows marriage doesn’t come easy, it takes work. Learning about common marriage mistakes can help you live through a strong healthy marriage. A lot of common mistakes married couples make revolve around their egos. For example, saying I told you so, or always having to be right. Some more examples are lack of respect and dishonesty. Also while sex isn’t what a relationships all about, not having enough of it can cause tension.
- A fundamental component of a healthy marriage is respect. It’s interesting that there are times when I see people treating their neighbor with more respect than they do their spouse.
- While sex is not the end all, be all to marriage, it is an important component. If little sex is occurring in your marriage (and you’d like more) discuss this with your spouse and/or seek professional help.
- Lies and secrets can harm any relationship. They can create a distance and lack of trust between you, making it hard for both of you to enjoy the marriage.
