Being forever content with a spouse requires finding ways to be happy with a different version of the person.
It’s unrealistic to expect your spouse to forever remain the same person you married. People are a work in progress and they are always evolving.
The most common cause of failing relationships is: Change.
Feeling oppressed by change or lack of change; it a tale as old as time. Yet at some point in any long-term relationship, each partner is likely to evolve from the person we fell in love with onto something new – and not always into someone cuter or smarter or more fun.
People can go from rock climber to couch potato, from rebel to middle manager, and from sex craved to sleep obsessed.
Sometimes people feel betrayed by this change. They fell in love with one person, and when that person doesn’t seem familiar anymore, they decide he or she violated the marriage contract.
In life, we must embrace change in ourselves and others. As people grow they tend to see things in new and different ways – not in a visual sense, but in terms of perception and understanding.
IT’S EVOLUTION. TO STAY MARRIED, EMBRACE CHANGE.
