Other issues include –
lack of healthy communication, comparing themselves to the others’ progress, failing to understand each other and their families, living a life driven by social media and societal pressures, lacking patience with each other, and intimacy issues.
The initial phase of a marriage is one that needs a couple to be empathetic. There should be an understanding that this is a new experience for both and might have to endure tough times to make the relationship work. Seeking perfection while they should be supporting, learning from, and solving problems with each other only creates for a chaotic environment at home.
The couple needs to make time to understand each other’s perspective, communicate efficiently, learn to trust each other to strengthen their bond and intimacy. They also need to realize that the other person cannot be ‘perfect,’ there will be flaws, imperfections, and quirks that they must accept and embrace. Before jumping on the divorce train, the newly-wed couple should discuss and seek help from their loved ones or professionals. Professional expertise in the subject might help resolve difficulties and overcome hurdles to maintain a healthy and fulfilling relationship.
After all, “A good marriage isn’t something to find; it’s something you make.”
