Live In A Fantasy World About Happy Couples?
Many times we see what we want to see in life and that includes what we THINK a happy relationship is.
MYTH: Happy Couples Never Argue: The truth is that happy couples get good at sorting through conflicts and reaching resolution. Anytime there are two people in any type of relationship there is going to be unique opinions and perspectives. Arguments can actually deepen the connection with a couple when done powerfully and respectfully. As a couple it’s important to agree to disagree without attacking each other or name calling. The best happy couple goal is to practice getting really good at resolving differences of opinion.
MYTH: Happy Couples Have Sex All The Time: A good sexual relationship is important with a happy couple. The truth is that relationships go through stages. The initial stage of relationship is all about infatuation, excitement and the physical attraction. As a couple becomes more confident with who they are together their emotional connection grows. Sorry men. Just remember if you think by getting married you’re going to have sex all the time think again. That truly is not the most important goal of a happy couple. Happy couples find a healthy sexual balance and connection that works for both of them.
MYTH: Happy Couples Do Everything Together: A happy couple has many interests in common, but not everything. They spend quality time together and they have their own interests and hobbies. It’s truly a myth if you expect your husband or wife to be your everything. It can be quite tasking to be ‘the one’ for everything. Happy couples find a balance of time together and time apart. It can be quite refreshing to be apart and have things to share with each other at the end of the day.
MYTH: Happy couples vent all their feelings to each other.
REALITY: Getting things off your chest might feel good, but when you blurt something out in the heat of the moment, you risk damaging the relationship permanently. Many relationships are destroyed when one partner can’t forgive something that was said during uncensored venting. Think before you say something you might regret.
