Once you are married there are things you should at all costs stop doing cause it can affect your marriage if you don’t stop it. Couples need to hammer into their heads that it is no longer a one ‘man’ or ‘woman’ affair but two. You should always put the other person into consideration. Here are ten things you should quit if you want happy home.
1. Sleeping Out
There is time for everything. During your young days, you could stay up late and even come home three days later. Now that you are married with responsibilities and a household to run, set a good example. If you must sleep out it should be on rare occasions such as a vacation, work travel, night shift, a medical emergency and never because you got too drunk to find your way home.
2. Dinner Dates With Opposite Sex
If that man or woman wants to treat you to dinner he should make a triple reservation for you, your partner and them. Whatever it is they want to say, they should do it before your partner and if they cannot this is a serious red flag and you should not entertain lest you get tempted.
3. Dressing Inappropriately
Now that you are married you have no reason to continue displaying your junk to the whole world. You already have a spouse so respect them and protect their dignity by covering up and dressing modestly.
4. Texting Opposite Sex
As a sign of respect avoid this by all means. Unless it is a business matter which should be communicated within stipulated working hours, you have no business being friendly and entertaining members of the opposite sex. Draw boundaries and let them respect that. Your partner’s feelings come first.
5. Keeping Nudes On Your Phone
How can you possibly justify having nudes on your phone? You have no reason whatsoever unless you intend on pursuing that subject. If that is not the case get rid of them before it raises suspicion.
6. It’s All About Me
When you are married it should be about us and not me. Everything you do and every decision you make should be reached upon by both of you and not one person.
7. Pointing At Each Other’s Mistakes
No one is perfect and having unrealistic expectations and being over-dependent on your partner will only lead to disappointment. Marriage entails moral support, togetherness, and understanding. Once you are married try as much as possible not to make the other person feel like a failure.
8. Using the Toilet With the Door Open
Silly as it may sound this happens to be a big issue that goes unspoken in many marriages. We understand you are comfortable with each other but come on! No one wants to smell what your body has expelled.
