There are many myths about relationships, and the biggest problem with especially popular myths is that they undermine the couple's happiness.
When you think that a relationship should correspond to a certain pattern, and yours does not match, it causes disappointment. Disappointment is a ticking time-bomb, which can destroy a relationship.
That is why it is important to destroy common misconceptions about your relationship with a partner. Check out 5 myths about successful, long-lasting relationships that many people believe.
#Myth number 1. Relationships develop by themselves
If one of your friends or acquaintances holds such a belief, they make think relationships are like a lottery ticket, which is not. You need to commit to relationships.
#Myth number 2. The common values and views of the spouses are optional
The creators of romantic films and books diligently convince us that the main thing in the relationship is the love that has appeared in them, and the difference in age, social status, worldview, religious views and other serious issues is not so important. While this belief is deeply rooted in our culture, it is not true.
#Myth number 3. If he does not bring flowers, he doesn't love you enough.
In couples where women do not expect constant proof of love from their spouses, relations are much more harmonious. What does it take to build a happy marriage? Do not wait until your spouse brings you all the blessings of the world on a silver platter. Try to make him happy and do not expect anything in return. The less you demand from your spouse, the more he will give you.
#Myth 4: The child makes the relationship stronger.
Studies have shown that, in fact, happiness in relationships decreases with the appearance of each child. This does not mean that you start to love each other less or that you can not bond with a child.
