When You Marry a Stranger: How to Deal
If you’ve been wondering what to do when you marry a stranger, then this article is for you. Marrying someone without knowing them well can be difficult and stressful. But with some preparation and planning, it can also be the best decision of your life! Here are five things that will help make marriage to a stranger easier:
Take time to get to know each other before saying “I do”
Share hobbies or interests together
Communicate openly about all expectations for the future
Make sure there is enough time in the day for both partners
Consider how children might change your relationship”
After thinking about what might make a marriage with a stranger work, you may have some general questions. Here are five myths that need debunking:
Myth #01 -Married couples who aren’t friends can never be intimate again! It’s best not to move forward with someone if this statement rings true. Intimacy needs trust and friendship as its foundation in order to flourish.
Myth #02 -A spouse will always bring out your worst traits! Maybe you’ll become more argumentative or hold grudges. That’s not the case if you’re open and communicative about your needs in a relationship, which includes having time for yourself.
Myth #03 -A spouse will always be there when they say they will! If someone is chronically late to everything it only takes one instance of being left waiting at home for something that never came to make you lose faith in their word. Communication can prevent this from happening by letting each other know what we need to feel taken care of.
Myth #04 -A spouse will complete me! You were whole before you met this person, and when your time together is up they won’t be taking any part of you with them. It’s important to remember that we are all individuals who need different things for our personal fulfillment so it doesn’t make sense to think someone else will provide everything we’re looking for in life.
Myth #05 -A spouse should always have the same opinions as I do! We don’t know what another person needs or wants without talking about it first, so why would anyone expect their future partner to automatically agree with them on every topic? The truth is everyone has limitations both physical and mental which can’t be expected to go away just because we want them to.
Myth #06 -Marriage is a long-term commitment! You should only get married if you’re prepared for it to last the rest of your life and are willing to deal with every single thing that comes up in that time together, good or bad. This myth assumes there will never be any problems when it comes to building an intimate relationship which can lead people into some dangerous territory when they find themselves facing challenges as a result of how their spouse deals with things such as depression, anxiety, addiction, etc…
The truth is marriage is meant to be flexible while also being committed enough not to break apart without really trying hard. It’s okay if at some point one person wants to call it quits and the other doesn’t. Marriage is NOT a long-term commitment when both partners are willing and committed enough to work on problems together, but when one partner isn’t there for the other then that’s not fair at all!
There should be some kind of contingency plan in place before getting married so if things do go south there are still safety nets in place such as: making sure you have property rights, having an agreement with your spouse about what happens to any children involved (shared custody/custody agreements), maintaining good communication between yourself and spouse even after they’ve moved out, keeping an open dialogue between yourselves instead of just waiting until something goes wrong or worse… fighting which often leads into the next step of separation or divorce.
when should break up with someone if you are not happy anymore
I’m going to answer this question by saying that there’s so much baggage involved in a relationship: from the disappointments, heartbreaks, and other things which accumulate over time in your life that lead to feeling like being stuck. The pain is just too great… but then again it might be easier than taking all these steps towards making yourself whole again while trying everything else first (ie therapy/counseling). In my opinion, sometimes it takes the powerlessness of ending a relationship before one can become more self-reliant and independent.
