5 Things You Don’t Have To Do For Love
There are certain things that need to be made clear in a relationship at the start. If they like you, then they like you for all of you—and all the things that make you, you. Thinking that you can change someone after you’re married, is wrong and unfair. It’s also pretty much impossible. There are habits you should have, and then there are things that you never should have to give up, “in the name of love”. Karaz’s Mira mentions 5.
Ditch Your Friends
It’s important not only to have your own friends, but also that he/she is friends with yours. If he/she doesn’t love them, you don’t have to all hang out at the same time. But you shouldn’t have to choose.
Miss Your Favorite Show
All the things we like, like that Turkish Drama or Dubbed Bollywood flick, are part of what makes us, us. So just because your partner may not be into it, doesn’t mean you have to give it up. Just delegate time when it’s on TV.
Change Your Diet
You know what works for you, and what doesn’t. If he/she has a special diet, you can respect it. Even help them. But just because one person doesn’t like laban, doesn’t mean it can’t ever enter the house again.
Change Your Style
They knew what you looked like when they met you, and knew what style is yours. Now that you’re together, doesn’t mean you have to change who you are, how you dress or how you express yourself.
Do Weird Sex Acts
If you want to try it, go ahead. Experimenting is great, but should be done with a lot of communication. If you find that you really don’t like doing something, speak up.
There’s compromise in every relationship. But there is also the sanctity of personal choice, expression and being. There are things you can compromise, and there are things you shouldn’t have to. What do you think of the list above? What else would you add, as a “no touch” point?
