Red Flags in Marriage
Marriage is beautiful. Spending your life with your significant other is something that could make your life wonderful. Sure, small and silly problems might arise and affect you both, but that’s normal. Sometimes, however, there are some indicators and clues that show that your relationship that need to be questioned, as they might cause all sorts of trouble for both of you in the future. Karaz’s Mira lists some of flags you need to pay attention to.
A marriage, or relationship, can turn into a dictatorship. You might end up only doing the things they want or only hanging around with their friends at the place they choose. They might get jealous of your relationships with family and friends and try to control who you associate with and thus limiting your world. Try to find a balance in your relationship.
Lack of Communication
Communication is highly important in situation where honesty and openness are needed for the relationship. Being distant, leaving you hanging, or trying to deal with every situation on their own is not a good sign, and it means that you both need to talk about your relationship.
Feelings of Insecurity
You might feel that you don’t know where the relationship is going, and instead of building your relationship on your experience as a couple, you end up feeling anxious or uncomfortable towards the future of your marriage. Talk to your partner – as both of you need to contribute in order to clear things out.
If you don’t trust your partner, then there’s something wrong. You might be curious about your significant other, but taking doubt to a level that is not comfortable for you or your spouse can be dangerous for the relationship and your mental health.
This is a no brainer, and even though we shouldn’t have to say it, we will: Abuse in any form, whether physical, verbal, psychological or emotional should not be tolerated. It’s not a red flag, it’s a huge flashing banner telling you to keep your distance, and not to look back.
