I'm interested in meaningful discussion
After a bunch of spiritual adventures, workshops, books, teachers, healers, and trial and error later... I started writing and blogging about my failed attempts at love, and people loved my authentic approach to story-telling and sharing my experiences about life and love. I now dedicate my time as an advisor and counsellor, working with couples to help them overcome the challenges in their relationships
Actually, marriage sucks!

Life after marriage is more of responsibility than a change.

This is me after so much of experience in two and half years of marriage.

I agree marriage changes life to some extent like promising a friend to meet but turned out late, getting up late n never reach family functions on time. Get blamed by office boss, friends, family, relatives n many other people for turning up late. Completing household chores late night when maid doesn't turn up n so many….. Who knows that I am sleeping more because of mental pressure which my office gave me. Also, work life balance was very very difficult.

But, I chose responsibility over change.

If I had to compare marriage with that of my single life, then it's a change but when I accept and adapt few things after marriage then it's responsibility.
How does one's life change after marriage?

The thing is called adjustment. After marriage, one has to make so many adjustments in your lifestyle, what you eat, what you drink, where you can go, with whom you can talk, your career, your hobbies. Almost each and every thing
When you go out with friends, someone will be waiting for you if you're late. Even just the thought of it sucks.

Yeah, My husband does not like traveling and i love traveling. So we both have to adjust with each other. He does not eat some veggies, so i don’t make them to avoid double effort of making something else for him. Left my career to move with him to another country. Had to leave my social life
We don’t do many things apart, which I think is a huge part of the problem. We’ve only been married for two years and it feels like 20.
Not being able to agree on everything. For some couples it is a lot and for others it is a little bit. But two humans will never totally align on likes, dislikes, value, principles, etc. So there will be compromises and sacrifices on the part of both people
I think marriage sucks because it makes you stuck at home when your friends are still living their lives

It really is a game changer getting married, and I don't think it's something for everybody.
Everything in my life at this point I am no longer excited about and I feel I am too young to check out of my marriage or my life
The age-old phrase “happy wife, happy life” may have some truth to it, but no matter how much you work to make your partner feel satisfied and equal in your relationship, marriage is hard.
I didn't live with my wife before we got married. Big mistake. After we got married, we moved in together and since then, I have had zero alone time.
Your life completely changes when you're married
We fight all of the time about one thing: money. We have joint accounts, so we can track exactly what each other is spending, but it's just obnoxious because then we get mad at each other for secretly spending money on stupid things. Before when we dated, money just seemed easier to figure out, but now that we share finances, it's a constant battle over every single thing we buy or spend money on.
Marriage goes in waves. You've got to be patient. People bail and give up on their marriages way too early. They just don't put the work and the effort into it. You've got to suck up your ego a lot of times, because that can be a big downfall.
