Well we're still in the thick of wedding season... So if YOU'RE not getting married, you probably know SOMEONE who is. Which
means YOU might be about to tell one of these four lies, from a list on
1. "You're already living together, so it won't be that different."
Aside from the legal stuff, the biggest thing that changes after
marriage is the PRESSURE. If you're just living together, you can leave any time. So you tend not to sweat the small stuff.
But once you're married, you're stuck. And the other person has less
incentive to make changes for your sake. So all those little quirks
become a lot harder to tolerate.
2. "You won't have to worry as much about money." Just because you both work doesn't mean you're going to live large from now on. Having double the money really just means having twice as much to fight over.
3. "After a few years, they'll come around." People rarely change
their deep-down beliefs, just to make their spouse happy. You might get someone to go to church, or stop ranting about politics, but it doesn't mean they CHANGED.
And if you think your spouse should love you enough to change for you .. . just ask yourself why YOU haven't already changed for THEM.
4. "You'll have so much fun being married you'll never miss being
single." Being married is great for lots of reasons. But freedom of
choice isn't one of them.
Once you're married, you have to take someone else into account. FOREVER.
*Any MORE to add??? :-)
