Women who deal with trust issues tend to wrongly think that marriage and babies will make their partners more committed. Having a baby may actually create new issues on top of the ones you’re already dealing with.
To improve your bond, you have to look at what’s happening inside the relationship rather than looking to outside forces to fix it
In the beginning of a relationship, you’re both putting your best foot forward. But eventually your flaws start to show, and your partner has to learn how to deal with them.
Recognizing that all relationships take work will keep you from feeling disappointed later on.
All couples have differences, and fighting is not a sign that you’re with the wrong person. It’s healthy to debate issues and accept that there will be disagreement.
What’s important is being diplomatic during arguments, and not judging or being critical of your partner. Speaking the truth without blame and judgment will establish trust and strengthen your bond.
Although looking for someone who has the qualities you lack brings some benefits, it’s also a big plus to have similarities in your personal history, as well as interests in common.
Coming from a similar background will make it easier for you and your partner to relate to one another.
