– In 2017, researchers at the University of Glasgow figured out that the average newlywed gains about 3-5 pounds within the first year of married life.
– Both middle-class and lower-income families face a lack of money after having children.
– Psychologists say that the tension is especially strong between wives and their mother-in-law. Dr. Evelyn Duvall’s research showed that 67% of mothers-in-law were not satisfied with their son’s wife, while 75% of daughters-in-law didn’t like their husband’s mother.
– After the wedding, your personal finances become joined, which can get really stressful for many, especially if one spouse earns more than the other.
– Hours spent playing video games, watching sports, browsing social media, or working on some craft project: surprisingly, those hobbies that attracted you to your partner in the first place can start to annoy you after some time.
– While you absolutely should do things together for this reason, you don’t need to spend ALL of your time in each other’s company. Otherwise, you risk getting sick of each other real fast.
– Turns out, even perfect people forget about important things! It can be due to work overload or natural absent-mindedness.
– As much as you wish for your honeymoon phase to last forever, marriage doesn’t really work that way. Sooner or later, despite expectations, the flowers, romantic evenings, and flirty conversations get replaced with mundane routine.
– In a new marriage, it might seem like friends take up too much space in the family’s life or that they influence your partner in a bad way, especially when you don’t like your spouse’s friends for one reason or another.
– As long as you manage to find a compromise, your marriage will be fine if one of you is more active during the day while the other is at night.
– What you should do is divide the housework in the most effective way possible depending on the situation. If your wife is working overtime today, go ahead and get dinner started.
– Don’t try to change your partner over trifle things. If you’re really concerned with, for instance, their portion sizes, instead of name-calling and eye-rolling, why not explain to them that you’re worried about their health?
– If you don’t like that your significant other has a habit of checking out other people, don’t keep your concerns to yourself and inform your partner of your dissatisfaction.
