5 Reasons Why The First Year Of Your Marriage Is Most Important For Your Relationship
1. You are getting to know each other
You may have known each other for a long time, but there are many things you don’t know about a person until you share your life with them. Your partner’s likes, dislikes, habits – both good and bad, the way they eat, sleep and many other things make you fully aware of your partner.
2. Learn to share “everything”.
Learning to be together sharing places like the bedroom, the bathroom and even the kitchen will be a completely different experience when you are together all the time, compared to spending time together from your dating days. And this is another learning curve you need to absorb in the first year of marriage.
3. We fight, but we also learn to act as a unit when a horrible situation arises
A healthy marriage has healthy struggles, and that’s what brings it together too. And along the way, we realize that we can fight with our hearts, but when faced with a challenging situation, we never leave our partner alone. Rather, the two of you become a team and seek fruitful solutions to solve the problem before you.
4. Being the only one
You finally become the family after you get married. And this is when you become the first person the other will call if there is a situation.
We learn what makes our partner happy and what makes them sad. We get to know each other’s strengths and weaknesses. And developing that bond is very important in the first year of marriage, since you are creating a bond that will last a lifetime.
5. You understand how you both deal with a crisis when it arises
You may be the stronger one when a difficult situation arises and you would like to fight it in the eyes. Your spouse, on the other hand, may be the exact opposite and may prefer to ignore it or run away from it. When you know how you both handle specific situations and are aware of each other’s crisis management techniques, you will be better equipped to handle them when the next one arises.
