Here are three facts that most couples don’t know when they get married:
1. A relationship goes through predictable stages
In the first stage the relationship is usually easy and exciting. However, in the second stage it is inevitable for couples to go through a period of conflict and disagreement. The more prepared you are as a couple the easier it is to navigate this phase.
2. A successful relationship requires certain skills and knowledge
You probably know that in order to be successful in your career you need to gain knowledge and skills. The same applies to your relationship. A successful relationship is something that you do, not something that you have and most couples need to learn the tools to make it happen.
3. You have to be aligned around important life values.
Love is not enough! Each one of us has certain values and expectations from our relationship that are absolutely important to us. For a successful future, couples need to have the same core values and vision of the future.
