Dispelling the Myths of Perfect Family Happiness: What Really Makes a Happy Family Life? – spaartaan

Rewritten: Being a married couple is not an easy task as people often give advice with good intentions, but it may not be useful. Inevitably, couples break the rules and taboos at least once during their life together, so how does it affect their life?

One myth is that couples should not go to sleep without making up after a fight. It may be better to postpone the continuation of the fight until the morning, especially if it’s past midnight, you’re exhausted, and there’s no foreseeable end to the fight. Although it’s bad to go to sleep feeling irritated after a fight, sometimes sleeping separately can have certain benefits, and it doesn’t mean the end of the marriage.

Another myth is that the birth of a child makes couples closer. Although it seems like the relationship has risen to a new level, taking care of a newborn is a test of a couple’s relationship. It’s essential to accept the fact that all married couples go through a crisis. A woman needs help taking care of the baby, and the help and support of a loving husband can help her manage her roles as a mother, wife, and businesswoman.

Another myth is that a husband and wife should not only be in a romantic relationship but also be friends. Romantic relationships and friendships are different, and one person cannot embody both passionate love and fond friendship. It’s important to keep the connection with each other and take an interest in each other’s lives.

Another myth is that an unsatisfactory sex life is not a problem. Sex is important, even necessary, to preserve a relationship, especially after the birth of a child when couples suffer from lack of sleep and chronic stress. Good sex does not require ideal circumstances, and any opportunity can be used to appreciate quick sex.

Another myth is that parents should not fight in front of their kids. Resolving a family conflict in front of children can be useful because it shows them that even the closest people sometimes cannot reach a mutual understanding.

In conclusion, marriage is not always easy, and there are many myths and misconceptions about what it takes to maintain a healthy and happy relationship. It’s important to remember that every couple is unique and there is no one-size-fits-all solution to every problem. However, by being open and honest with each other, communicating effectively, and accepting that there will be ups and downs, you can build a strong and lasting bond with your spouse. Remember to give each other space and time to pursue individual interests, show appreciation and gratitude, and don’t be afraid to seek professional help if necessary. With effort and commitment, you can create a fulfilling and rewarding marriage that lasts a lifetime.
