The 5 Most Common Mistakes People Make In Marriages

Naturally, people make mistakes. However, some mistakes can be detrimental to your marriage. Here are five of the most common mistakes that people make in marriage and why they must be avoided.
A lacking sexual relationship. Not having enough sex may not seem like much of an issue to some married people. However, the mere fact that intimacy is created through sexual intercourse in a way that cannot be achieved outside of marriage indicates a marriage needs it to thrive. Sexual intercourse brings a couple together on an incredibly deep level because both partners are able to express vulnerability to one another. Without a sufficient amount of sexual intercourse between a husband and wife, a distance will be created which may eventually lead to extramarital affairs.
The inability to trust one another. All too often, people make a habit out of telling little white lies. It is important that you keep all forms of lying out of your marriage. Even if you are not doing anything really wrong, the smallest of lies can make your spouse feel that they are not privy to all aspects of your life, festering distrust.
R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Respect means different things to different people, but it ultimately comes down to how you treat the one that you love. If you show respect for your husband or wife, you let him or her know that you value their opinion. You are always considerate of your spouse’s feelings and thoughts, never making important decisions that affect you both without discussing it with him or her first. You can also express respect for your spouse in the bedroom. A lack of respect can lead to resentment, creating distance in a marriage.
A lack of appreciation. People naturally need to feel appreciated. Husbands and wives do a great deal for one another on a daily basis, even if it is just going to work every day to put food on the table. Tell your partner how much you appreciate him or her on a regular basis, always saying “Thank You” when they do something for you.
Excessive criticism. You must accept the fact that you did not marry your husband or wife because they are perfect. All humans have flaws. Do not stand over your spouse’s shoulder, calling out every little mistake that he or she makes. It will not kill you to eat food that is a little burned from time to time, nor will you die if you have to put the seat down yourself.
