Many people view a marriage as something when two people love each other, they can choose to be with each other. In the modern age, divorces have made this very bad as people are able to leave their marriage, which should be considered a social contract, whenever they please. This is a fact in the modern world.
- In a marriage there are rules, expectations, and boundaries that define a relationship.
- You may find, for example, that you are being asked to agree to do things that you really don’t want to do.
- Discovering our full agenda may not be as easy as it might seem, because we may not be conscious of all the things we really want or need.
“If we keep in mind that many problems in marriage spring from unmet needs, taking a contractual approach means we know exactly what we want and expect from our relationship, and we’re aware of what we will be expected to give in return.”
