In a marriage, you must prioritize communicating and commit to making the relationship work. Hey, you already signed the paper. You should try your hardest to make it work. Now, it’s not going to change in one day, but there are things that can immediately improve it and save it from falling apart.
Relationships are hard work, they really are. Of course, when you’re married, there’s also a legal commitment to each other, which puts extra pressure. However, all relationships, whether bound by marriage or not, require work from both partners. It’s normal for people to think that once they’re married the hard work stops. But in reality, it’s just getting started. Again, this doesn’t mean your marriage should feel like a full-time job, but you can’t get lazy and content.
