Check out the 7 common myths about relationships that can lead you straight down the road to a breakup:
1. After you get married, your relationship will magically transform.
To be frank, there are some downright dumb expectations of marriage floating around out there. There are also lots of strange and sordid reasons that people get married. The truth is that when you marry someone who you know well, your relationship with them will be a lot like it was BEFORE you tied the knot.
2. If you have a good relationship, you won’t fight.
You and your partner might be peas in a pod, but if you’re being honest with yourself, it’s unlikely that you’ll agree on everything. There will be disagreements. There will be conflict. A good relationship is a lot more about the way you both handle conflict than the presence of conflict. Actually, when someone says that they never, ever disagree with their partner, it tells me more than if they have rip-roaring arguments every night. Negativity happens.
