Stop Regretting Divorce

Marriage would seem wonderfully endearing to the single particular person who has by no means married, and possibly to the divorced man or woman who hankers for some thing to arrest their longing for companionship or sexual release, but marriage for nearly all of us is quite a challenging work at times. (And I can say this even as a representative of my wife!). We carry so considerably of ourselves into our marriages – which is each a great and a negative point.

We bring in expectations of being ‘met’ by our partners: that they will satisfy us sexually, not devote too a lot funds, not seek to handle us, that they will want to invest time with us. We also carry in expectations of what our partners need to deliver to us: their virtues of diligence and moderation and sanctity and kindness – to name just 4. We are disappointed when they don’t measure up to our previously unconscious expectations – that have now turn out to be conscious due to our encroaching annoyance.

There are basically three key ingredients to compromise each person gives a little, each person gets as many needs met as possible, and each person works for the good of the relationship, not their own desires.

It would be nice to know if there was a simple process or formula you could use to find the right partner. Unfortunately there isn’t, but many people seem to rush into marriage.

For a marriage to work you need to spend time and attention on it. It is no different to running a business or growing plants; they all require nurturing to blossom and grow.

Most people don’t get married believing that insurmountable conflicts with their spouse are going to arise over the course of their relationships. Consequently, this often means that when issue resulting in conflict do arise, they take couple by surprise and can lead to disillusionment – or worse.

You would not consciously think and choose to do these things; they would all immediately and automatically happen because the hindbrain kicked into activity and went to work to make sure you survive.

Jealousy, Most people would agree that a certain amount of jealousy can add passion and sizzle to a relationship – after all who wants an indifferent spouse? However, too much jealousy (or irrational or “controlling” jealousy) can cause major conflicts in your marriage if it gets to the point that one spouse begins to feel alienated or that one’s partner simply mistrusts the other.

Therefore when something happens “now” that is similar to something that happened years ago as a child, the Old Brain (that controls emotion and reactivity) connects to the prior experience as information about the present event, but does not experience the old experience as “old.” The emotion that was present then is brought into the present experience and we experience the combined emotion of then and now.

Instead, you should understand that happiness in your relationship comes from how you deal with incompatibility.

Seek the knowledge of those who can help you move in the right direction, especially when you feel you are alone in your efforts.

Here is one principle my wife and I have practiced ever since our courting days. Never go to bed with unresolved conflicts. Even if you have to stay up all night to talk things through, do it if it can restore peace between you both. Then you can both sleep in peace. I know it is not always possible but this is a good practice and you should work towards it as far as possible.

But marriage lasts too long, the encounters become constant, and in close quarters for anyone to sustain a public persona. Personalities eventually give way to an INNER SELF which is much deeper and stronger.
