Adjustments In MarriagePosted: February 10, 2014
No person will be perfect the moment you meet them, and you won’t be perfect the moment they meet you. Marriage isn’t about marrying the perfect or the right person because nobody is perfect or right for each other.
Successful marriages aren’t successful by two people being the right match, but when those people are able to adjust to each other. Married life has a lot of adjustments. Some adjustments most married couples face deal with children, parents, and jobs. Although those are common they are not the only ones. Every couple is different, but they all must adjust.
How do you adjust successfully?
The best way is to make sure you both have respect for each other to make a strong bond of commitment. Marriage needs to have a trust and to have trust; both of you need to know that through those adjustments periods, you are committed to each other.
I know that sounds like common sense, but many marriages are easily broken because they are unwilling to be committed during adjustment periods.
Marriage isn’t easy all the time, and there will be moments when the person you married won’t look like the greatest person in the world. But you didn’t marry a perfect person because no one will ever be perfect. To stay strong during those moments, you need to be willing to be flexible and committed. Those times will pass. Remain committed to each other, and your marriage will be stronger.
