Do We Take Each Other For Granted? by @SingleCGirl
While finding the time recently to browse the Internet, looking for something to write about. While reading some other blogs, a question came to me:
In a relationship, do we take each other for granted?
One of the blogs I came across was a man talking about the ways he blew his marriage. He talked about the little things, like holding hands, making yourself look good for your wife/husband, kissing each other daily and not resenting each other for the little things, like spending money and things each other may say. I found this very interesting.
I know that once two people get into a committed relationship many get into a pattern, a routine when it comes to their lives. Then we get to the point where we expect each other to do things because we put each other in certain roles. We then assume each other must be happy in those roles because people will openly talk about being unhappy right? Well actually no. Most of us don’t like to talk about being unhappy in our lives, well at least for the most part. We would rather let the people around us believe that we are happy to avoid those questions of why we are unhappy.
I know that once two people get into a committed relationship many get into a pattern, a routine when it comes to their lives. Also, in long term committed relationship you get to the point where that spark is not there as much as it use to be. Our lives get busy, full of work, kids and after school activities. We sometimes forget that we are in a relationship and what that means. We pass each other at the door as one of us is coming home while the other one is leaving. We forget about the little things, just as the blog I read said. And this is where we take each other for granted and think that our relationship is okay. We don’t talk about our roles in the relationship, we don’t talk about the last time we had a moment alone with each other. We give each other the “we will talk about it one day, when we have time”, but if you keep being busy with work, the kids and everything that life bring. That conversation will never happen.
Do we take each other for granted? Well, yes. When we start to take each other for granted our relationships will start to fall apart and fail. Remembering the little things such as a kiss, holding hands or even looking good for your partner can help. Not putting each other in roles and assuming that they are happy, opening up communication with talking and not yelling will help too. I know a lot of couples that have date nights every Wednesday and on certain evenings they have planned sex. Okay yes not very spontaneous, but hey it still works!
