EP21: 4 Things to Keep in Mind Before Getting Married
Last week, Therapy Jeff and Sarah focused on breaking up. This week, they're talking about staying together. Specifically, they're talking about marriage. Sarah asks Jeff to break down his "Four Things a Relationship Therapist Wants You to Keep in Mind Before Getting Married" video. First, they're talking about the fact that when you say yes to one person, you are, in a way, saying no to the possibility of anyone else. Second, Jeff reminds us that when you settle down, you're settling for a person who can't possibly meet all your needs (and you shouldn't expect them to). Third, you're going to get triggered by your spouse, but the important thing to remember is that's not necessarily a bad thing. Fourth, when you get married, you're going to have conflict with your spouse. So be prepared to take a break and get some space. These are all realities of being in a long term relationship that might seem negative at first glance, but they all provide opportunities to learn more about yourself, your partner, and the relationship you're building together. And that's a good thing.
We want to hear from you! Let us know what's on your mind:
