#4: Don’t Try To Change Your Partner
Sometimes people commit with each other in the hopes that they will correct each other as time goes by. Nope, that’s not going to happen. You simply can’t try and change anybody according to your whims and fancies.
I’m not talking about bad habits here. It’s great if you want your husband to quit smoking or any other bad habit, but don’t marry someone if you want to change him beyond that.
In addition, remember that you can’t force your partner to change himself/herself. Your partner might even concede and do things according to your requirements, but before you know it, it might take a toll on him and affect your relationship.
Amongst the relationship rules, it is imperative to understand that it’s not your job to fix the other person. Yes, lifestyles and habits of some people do not match the ideal but ultimately, it is all perceptive. What might be a crappy lifestyle for one might be envious for another.
Letting the other person know about how he/she is not up to the mark is just disgraceful. Whilst in a relationship, couples need to respect each other and make sure that no one gets to feel like they are being controlled or driven. If one partner feels like the other is dominating or is being too adamant, then it’s a quick recipe for disaster.
You wouldn’t like it if your partner tried to tell you what to do constantly, would you? So, remember that you can’t change someone, but you can always communicate with your partner and tell him/her as to what suits you the best. Similarly, you can also understand what your partner needs and think about the best possible way for you to live happily.
