There is a saying, ‘it takes two to tango’. Well, true to every word, in a relationship both the partners have to make an equal effort to make it work. You need to make small compromises and sacrifices to keep your partner happy. But, by asking you to compromise, we do not mean that you should lose your identity by changing yourself completely to be what your partner wants you to be. What we are talking about is that there are little things you do just because they make your partner happy.
So, here we talk about those little compromises and sacrifices you do not mind making for your partner because you love them so much!
You understand how important a little bit of ‘me-time’ is to them and they give it to you too.
You can always get your ‘me’ time sometime else. The moments that call for being together have to be fulfilled.
Because you understand that the kids are both of yours responsibility.
If they matter to your spouse, they matter to you, however irritating they might be.
Be it their official party, a family wedding or just a strong craving your partner has for Chinese food, you cannot say no, because they do the same for you.
Every decision you make, be it about your career or about a weekend trip, you always consider how it will effect your partner. That is what being in a relationship is all about at the end of the day, is it not?
You may be low yourself, but the need of the hour is to console your partner and, you are mature enough not to make the whole thing about yourself.
A little white lie never hurt anyone. For your partner’s happiness, all is fair. So what if they burned the dinner a bit, you smile through it.
With age comes maturity that gives you the ability to distinguish right and wrong. Stretching matters would make things worse and you understand that quite well.
Because over the years, you have come to know that these mood swings are temporary and their casues probably have nothing to do with you. They might have had a bad day at work, or had an argument with their friends. So, you must remain the calm and composed one.
If it makes your partner happy, you will not mind trying the scariest roller coaster ride, bungee jumping, or something equally daunting at least once despite having a fear of heights. Being together is what is more important for you.
So, if you feel you do these things for your partner or vice versa, tag them to let them know you do all this with all your heart and that you appreciate them doing these for you as well.
Marriage is not merely meant for having kids. It is for the companionship of a loved one whom you marry and promise to spend a lifetime together. In the showbiz, there are many examples of celebrity couples who did not stop leading a happy married life despite not having kids. TheseRead More
