Being married does not mean that you are going to spend all your life with your partner. It also means that you get to live with a new family, new home and new people. As a wife, you leave your old home and live in a new one. It takes a lot to do that. If the new family is good, understanding, helping and adjusting, chances are high that the person will be happy with his or her married life. Some families are not accepting and good as in laws, which bring disaster in a new member’s life.

A person before getting married spends all his life either alone or with some partner. Basically, it lives an independent life where he can do anything that makes him feel good or anything he likes to do. After getting married, if a person’s personal space is invaded by his partner or by any other family member, he can be unhappy with his decision of getting married. Also, if the person is confined within certain boundaries and limits, is told to stop doing things that he mostly do because it makes him feel good, his happiness can be questionable. However, being too much authoritative and not letting your partner any kind of autonomy and trying to control all of your partner’s actions, keeping a detailed track of your partner’s activities and not having a concrete trust on him can cause not only your married life to end but it will also affect your partner’s metal status to a large extend and your partner may form some opinions about marriage which can be unchangeable and it will bring some seriously undesirable changes in him too.

Personal space

Give your partner his or her personal space and let your partner enjoy with other people other than your or your family. If you give your partner his or her personal time and let them enjoy their own time with their own friend’s group and family. It will not make them feel bounded or confined. Giving your partner the right amount of freedom and let them choose their own lifestyle is a good act of leading a healthy married life.
