When two people meet and decide to marry, it can seem like they have found
“the one”. But, with the divorce rate on the rise, it makes
one question the idea of “Mr. or Mrs. Right”. Perhaps the
problem lies not in the idea of a soul mate, but in the expectations we
place on ourselves and our mate when starting a new relationship. Of course
at first things really do seem perfect, but once the newness of a relationship
wears off, what once seemed cute or quirky can be downright annoying.
In order to form a bond that lasts, there are some helpful
tips. For instance, make a commitment to yourself to give the relationship
a chance, even if that means stepping outside your comfort zone and trying
something new. Showing interest in and trying out things your mate enjoys
shows that you care about the things that matter most to your partner.
It is also important to communicate effectively, and find ways to disagree
without escalation. Sometimes these things come easily, and other times
it takes hard work. If you believe you have found “the one”,
then it will be worth your while.
Even when a couple works hard and wants their relationship to last, things
don’t always go smoothly. Relationships don’t always last,
and marriages do end. When that happens, you need to protect yourself
by having an experienced family law attorney advocate for a fair settlement.
