10 Marriage Lies You Need To Stop Believing

3. My marriage will always be perfect

Newlyweds tend to have this mindset that marriage is perfect all of the time. Sorry to shatter that dream, but it’s not perfect. You’re going to have fights and arguments, so don’t freak out when it happens. It shouldn’t be happening all the time, but a lively discussion is healthy every once in a while.

4. My spouse should know exactly what I need

As much as you would love it, your spouse can’t read your mind. You have to communicate with them for your partner to understand. Otherwise, they’re not going to know why you’re upset and leaving them to guess will cause resentment. Talk through your concerns, emotions and questions through so your needs (and their needs) can be met.

5. The kids always need to come first

It’s awesome that you’re giving so much attention to your kids, but don’t forget to nurture the most important relationship you have in your life – your marriage. If you never put your spouse first, your marriage will undoubtedly suffer the consequences.

6. I’m not in love with my spouse anymore

People tend to get caught up in their day-to-day lives and forget to work on their relationships, leaving a severe lack of romance, friendship and love in your life together. Don’t think you’ve fallen out of love if your relationship is suffering, just take it as an opportunity to work on your relationship and fall in love all over again.
