Just when you thought that the world will start minding their own business and stop worrying about when you will get married, they will now start worrying and poking you about when you will have kids, how many do you plan to have, your relationship with your husband etc., etc.!

Yes, you may feel that marriage gives you the license to be together all the time and that you would want to also, but in reality, that isn’t the case. After the honeymoon phase is over, you are back to the grind- going to work, getting busy with life and meeting each other at the dinner table. Well, in most cases at least!

That is the harsh reality and it’s every bit of true! You get so busy with your work, the house, the kids and other things that sex becomes a very secondary part of your life. But, always work towards keeping the spark alive, no matter what!

By this we do not mean that you always have to compromise, but with marriage comes certain amount of adjustments that you have to make. You need to change some habits and keep other’s wishes before yours at times, just so that everyone (including you) is happy!

Yes, you do and that’s okay. You don’t wish to go back to your past, but you just keep casually comparing; not only the negatives but the positives too. Everyone does it so it is totally cool!
