Divorce is something that nobody wants to think about after recently tying the knot, but realizing what can truly disintegrate a marriage can help you refrain from engaging in behaviors that often lead to divorce. One major mistake that couples make is trying to live parallel to one another. It is important to express your own goals and desires while respecting those of your partner so that you can get to know each other as individuals, and not as a merged unit.
- Women make the mistake of talking to friends about their husband’s treatment. Rather, talk to a trusted friend in the presence of a coach or therapist.
- Learn communication skills designed for men when talking about how he treats you, rather than end up nagging or being misunderstood.
- Spend your energy on being the best you can be. Don’t hinge your happiness on your husband’s changing or not changing.
