Recently Brides released a series of videos where they interviewed several couples married from 0-65 years and asked them “What’s the worst thing about being married?” Take a look.
Now their answers were not too far-fetched as pretty much every married couple, especially newlyweds, will experience that kind of perception at first.
In fact, if you see the other video about “what is the best thing about being married” you’ll see that the answers are the same as all the negative answers, just with a different view or perspective.
If you look closely at the years of marriage of each couple you’ll notice that the majority of those who answered some of the negatives about being married that in the end will become the strength of the marriage, in the long run, are couples who’ve just recently married and are getting adjusted to their new life status.
Personally, I can give you a whole list of the worst things about being married like my husband waking me up in the middle of the night when he moves in bed to get closer to me. I don’t even know why we need a king size bed when we sleep on one half of it. A big problem right?
However, if I let that weigh in my head for sure my husband and I wouldn’t be here today celebrating 24 years of marriage and still going strong. And the reason why because those so-called “worst thing about being married” are actually the best things about being married.
The lesson to learn here is that don’t let those negative perceptions take over you but instead learn to find the middle ground to find the balance for you and your spouse. They are not to be ignored. You must bring them out into the surface as soon as they appear and communicate them to your partner so that later on they won’t become the heavyweights you carry in your marriage that break you.
What things you don’t like about marriage but at the same time are the ones you appreciate the most about it?
