    1. And, you are most kind, my sweet Christy. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. I admire your wisdom and it means a LOT to me. xox

  1. Wow! Right on point about these three misconceptions of a long term commitment. Forewarned, is forearmed. I wish young people had more realistic expectations for marriage. The divorce rate would decline, drastically. Great advise.

  2. I agree, these are the most common lies people tell themselves. The thing is, your partner has to want to change and grow and become a better person. They are the only ones who can make their lives better, you have no control. You can express your worries, but they will be the ones who will decide whether they want to change.

    When entering a marriage, it’s not “me” it’s about “us” now. There is obviously a healthy independance, but there is also interdependance at play. Each individual should be able to function on their own, be happy on their own, but when they are together, it should enhance their happiness and knowledge and passion. In a marriage, you have to think about how your decisions impact your spouse, and if not, then issues are going to come up. I’ve seen many couples that are selfish and aren’t yet thinking about them as a team, but rather as two separate people who enjoy each other’s company.

    Sex in marriage.. that can be such an issue with couples! Sex is about compromise, love, affection, safety, generosity, and fun. Sex is important but it’s not the foundation of a relationship. Trust is the foundation. I have found that so many couples don’t talk about sex and their differences. I’ve often wondered why talking about sex can be so scary for some couples. This is the person you are supposed to trust and know that they are going to be supportive.

    The thing is relationships/marriages are a job, that’s what I always say. Marriages take work to maintain them, and there is nothing wrong with that, in fact, I think it’s a great opportunity to show your appreciation and love daily in little ways.

    1. Thank you, Savannah, for taking the time to watch and for making the time to share your enlightening thoughts on the subject. I truly admire you as a relationship peer and your comment means a lot to me. Thanks again! xox
