It’s easy to fall in love, but making the relationship work is not easy. It demands time, effort and patience. With technology, our relationships have also evolved. That’s the reason age-old relationship advice passed on from generations don’t make any sense. These old-fashioned advice don’t fit in our present day situations. It’s time you start breaking them to stay happy.
Never Sleep Angry
This is an age-old advice usually given to young couples, but at times it’s okay to break this rule. Staying up late to resolve the issue can worsen the situation, because you both are angry and aren’t thinking right. Sleeping over the issue will save you from drama and sleep deprivation. The next day, you will be clear headed and act wisely.
Be Best Friends
Many people expect their partners to fulfil all their needs, be it of a best friend or lover. But, you should avoid doing this. Keeping unrealistic expectations from your partner can create unnecessary pressure.
Don’t Hide Anything
In some situations, this rule can be very harmful, it’s not necessary to share every secret with your partner. Being transparent about everything all the time can create more problems. Like in situations when your child comes and tells you a secret and doesn’t want the father to know, don’t do it. It will bring you close to your children.
Don’t Try to Change him
Before marrying you, your mom must have added this one rule too. Don’t try to change him, instead try to adjust. But to stay happy, it’s better to point out the habit/s of your husband which drive you crazy. Discussing the issue will make him a better person and make you a happy couple.
Fighting Is Healthy
It’s okay to have a fair fight with your partner, as it can help solve some issues that block your happiness. But picking up fights on every small matter when you both don’t agree on a point is not acceptable. It is unhealthy and emotionally draining too. Fights aren’t as healthy as some people think.
Going for Regular Dates
When you get into a relationship, it’s exciting to go out for candlelight dinners, but with time as your responsibilities increase with kids it can be very exhausting to manage a date. Break this rule. Instead, try to have candlelight dinner at home and watch a movie in the comfort of your house.
