Love marriage divorce is a common sequence in today’s society. Many couples get married without really understanding what is involved in keeping a marriage going. And when things don’t go as planned, they often end up getting divorced. This blog post will explore the truth about love and marriages and divorces. We will go beyond the depressing statistics and see if there are ways to avoid going through the trauma of divorce.
There are many reasons why marriages end in divorce even when they are built on a foundation of love:
Expectations are too high. Many think that love will be enough to sustain them through the bad times, but it often isn’t enough. Couples need to be realistic about their expectations for marriage and be prepared to work through the tough times together. They need to learn all the skills to keep communication clear.
They don’t know each other well enough. When they are wrapped up in the cloud of love (and lust), sometimes couples rush into marriage and don’t take the time to get to know each other. They might not really know each other’s likes, dislikes, and values, because people tend to just agree to their partner’s choices when they are courting. This can lead to problems down the road when disagreements arise. It’s important for couples to take their time and get to know each other before tying the knot.
Living with someone isn’t easy. There is a lot to work out in terms of who does which of the household chores, how the finances will be managed and how often you will have sex. After the honeymoon, when people go back to the demands of work and running a household, a lot of issues can come to the surface. If communication isn’t great, these issues can fester and lead to resentments.
So what can you do to avoid these pitfalls?
Premarital counseling can help. And once you have been married for a while, it doesn’t hurt to have some marriage counseling to make sure that no resentments are building and that communication is clear.
So don’t just following the slide from love to marriage and to divorce. Learn how to really make a marriage work.
