No one has a perfect marriage or relationship, no matter how shiny it may look on the outside. When it comes to marriage, there are some lies and stereotypes we hear, even before we get married. Here are three of them that people need to stop believe ASAP:
- You are not entitled to a perfect marriage or an easy marriage. A perfect or an easy marriage just don’t exist. Marriage takes work. Living and being with someone for long amounts of time isn’t easy. It takes forgiveness, sacrifice, and interconnectedness.
- You are not entitled to a perfectly planned life. Bad times happen. You will face obstacles and challenges. Things you and your partner planned will go off the rails. Knowing that this is going to happen, and knowing how you two will get through it, will help you. Don’t just expect easy breezy.
- You are not entitled to a Happily Ever After. Unfortunately, nothing in life is guaranteed. Your story is your own, whether good or bad. And just because you may not have that happily ever after doesn’t mean that you won’t have an interesting story that’ll help you grow, whatever the ending may be!
