Understanding Expectations

It's not that you fight that matters, but how you fight

Everybody enters marriage with expectations. These expectations are hidden rules that form our reality of how a marriage should function. These expectations are usually unconscious (hidden) rules that we expect our partner to comply with.

If our partner breaks these hidden rules then we feel disappointed and unloved. Conversely, we feel especially loved and validated when our partner does specific behaviors that resonate with your expectations

Unconscious role expectations have been hard-wired in us based on our upbringing (family of origin primarily), the media, friends, books we read, the church, etc.

Since our partner is not a mind-reader, they must be made aware of what these unconscious expectations are. This awareness is most effectively accomplished through effective communication.

Test your ability to effectively discuss expectations.

Along with your partner, Commence a discussion on the following "hidden rules'.

These are some common questions that formulate the unconscious expectations of most people 

There will always be unconscious expectations or hidden rules in a marriage. Your ability to have a successful marriage is determined by your ability to discuss and navigate these expectations effectively.

QUESTIONS TO DISCUSS:

There are two kinds of people in a relationship. There are the Disasters and the Masters of relationship. The MASTER OF RELATIONSHIP is always seeking for an opportunity to repair, heal and strengthen the relationship.

Ask your partner. Do you possess the disposition to be a Master of relationship- To repair the relationship when needed? DISCUSS! 

 
* What kind of parent will you be? Will you be a passive father? Will you assist with the discipline of the children?
* Who will work? 
 
* Will you assist with the house chores?
* How many children do you want?
* How much may I spend without your approval?
* Will you be obsessed about how long I speak to a friend?

* Whose family will we be spending Thanksgiving/ Christmas with this year?
* How is the relationship with your mom, and dad?
* How do you deal with conflict? Do you shout and yell at the slightest misunderstanding or annoyance?
* Will you threaten to leave me if I refuse to be sexually intimate with you before marriage? Will you force me into sexual activity against your will?

Life is a

One-time gift

Understand it &

Live it

 

Are you equally yoked?

One way to minimize the likelihood of undue stress and pain is to ensure that you are not unequally yoked

Never marry a person who does not share the same beliefs as you.
