At the beginning of the relationship both partners feel crazy in love. We see only the best sides of each other. After a while, we take off the pink glasses and begin to see everything quite differently. Nobody's perfect, including your favorite man! That’s how our journey into the world of compromises begins.
Being in a serious relationship is hard work. Both partners have to make some compromises. You can ask each other about daily things, and these are also considered compromises. However, there are bigger compromises, which should not be taken lightly. Your man may ask you to give up favorite things, and that may force you to question staying in the relationship.
Sometimes standing your ground is better than giving in. That is why we have listed 10 compromises you should not make with your man. Let’s check them out!
#1. Dreams and Goals
You should never give up following your dreams and goals. Your partner must support you, and not ask you to give up your dreams and goals!
This is who you are in your soul. Your partner should respect your major life priorities like family, health, and career. He must be a better person, not only for you, but with you.
Maybe you’ve always wanted a big family with three kids and a life in the suburbs, but your partner doesn’t support this lifestyle. You shouldn’t give up life priorities! The best thing to do is stop prolonging the inevitable end of the relationship.
#4. Family and Friends
If your partner tries to keep you from seeing family and friends, it means that you should think about it! It’s not normal. Every person needs family and friendship, and you are not an exception!
Your partner shouldn’t make you feel bad! Don’t accept verbal abuse in your relationship. Unhealthy communication can be seriously damaging to your self-esteem.
#6. Sex Life
If you have some sexual problems at the beginning of the relationship, you should both pay attention to this problem. Sexual issues that aren’t addressed early on can lead to even less sex and possible infidelity later.
Don’t let your man flirt with other women. Flirting is a sign your partner needs someone else to fulfill some of his needs.
#8. The type of relationship
Stand on your ground, and do not let your partner invite third parties into your relationship! This decision can cause big problems and jealousy!
If you need communication and your partner can not give it to you, this is trouble! If he prefers to ignore you, the truth is that you are not a priority for him.
#10. Financial Security
If your partner is taking from you financially, and not contributing to expenses, there is nothing to compromise here. He must stop! If it feels like you are constantly footing the bill and he’s mooching off of you, it’s best to keep your accounts and finances separate and plan very inexpensive dates until he gets his finances together.
