At the start of every marriage, couples are very excited about building a life together and discovering more of each other. They find their similar beliefs and compatible qualities amazing and interesting. They are full of romance and love with each other. Unfortunately, nothing stays the same, a once happy and full of life marriage can become problematic. Sometimes the marriage can become boring that couples became more like friends than lovers. Are you falling out of love with your spouse? Here are some reasons why couples fall out of love.
Couples forget the good times. After the honeymoon stage and reality sets in, couples are now faced with the reality of married life. They focus more on raising the family, paying bills and their individual careers. They are caught up with the responsibilities and demands of married life that they cannot remember the good times anymore. To prevent falling out of love with your spouse, take a break and spend time together to remind yourself of the good times your marriage once had. This is also a good opportunity to rekindle the passion and love in your marriage.
Couples argue a lot and always want to win. It is normal for couples not see each other eye-to-eye all the time. It is not the absence of arguments that makes the relationship stronger but it is how you handle arguments. If you or your spouse always want to be right, the marriage will suffer and eventually fall apart. If you are falling out of love with your spouse due to unending arguments, give in once in a while and let your spouse have his or her way. Winning is not getting what you want while hurting your spouse. You should remember that you are arguing with your spouse and not with an enemy so saving your relationship is more important than being right.
Couples forget the good qualities they love about each other. Due to everyday challenges of married life, couples tend to forget what qualities they love about each other. Those good qualities are sometimes clouded with everyday issues and responsibilities of married life. A person may somehow change if faced with too many challenges and stress everyday but his or her core is still the same and the good qualities you once love about your spouse are still there. Try to focus on those good qualities. The more you dwell on your spouse’s good qualities, the more you will realize how lucky you are with your spouse.
Couples stopped being romantic. When the marriage is new, couples are still sweet, thoughtful and romantic to each other. As time goes by, the romance starts to fade until they become more like roommates than lovers. Do not stop romancing your spouse. Make him or her feel desired and adored. Chocolates, flowers, love notes, holding hands, cuddling and kissing are not only for dating couples but also for those who are already married. Keeping the romance alive in your marriage could prevent couples from falling out of love.
Couples stopped fulfilling each other’s needs. Are you falling out of love with your spouse because you feel that your needs are not being met in your marriage? When one or both spouses feel that his or her needs are not being met in their marriage, it leads to frustrations and the feeling of frustration harbors negative feelings and behaviors like anger, resentment and withdrawal. To stop falling out of love with your spouse, start dating again and spend quality time with your spouse. Put your spouse’s needs above your own needs. By pleasing your spouse first, it will eventually lead to the fulfillment of your own needs.
If couples can fall out of love, they can learn to fall back in love again.
