Post-wedding depression


In the first weeks after the wedding, some newlyweds begin to experience not joy, but boredom or even sadness. The fact is that couples spend months, if not years, planning a wedding. When the holiday and honeymoon are behind, they are forced to return to their daily routine. And it's not very inspiring.


Share the news and small victories with each other - these small events will consist of the lion's share of your life together. Learn to appreciate them, and you can build a strong marriage.



Lack of personal time and space

"My husband is my best friend." There is nothing wrong with this regard unless you turn into Siamese twins and isolate yourself from your former surroundings. Then the merger can come out sideways.


Despite the fact that your life has begun an amazing period and want to share this time only with a husband or wife, remember: you are still a separate person. Don't forget about your friends and hobbies that brought you joy before the wedding.



Frustrated parents


A new family is also a new relationship with other families, parents. And at first, these relationships can be strained: parents will be offended that you are giving them little time, or jealous that you meet with another couple of parents more often.


Make all decisions, including where and with whom to spend holidays and weekends, together with your spouse. In the early stages, it is very important to support each other and strengthen their new family. Relatives may be disappointed in your choice for a while. But in the end, they will be impressed with how you fulfill each other's obligations.



Fresh sex

Sex after the wedding exists, but may not bring such joy as before. Probably because before marriage, his goal is to strengthen the bond between partners, and then, as a rule, - to create a child. In this case, sex becomes like work and does not cause the previous storm of feelings.


Remember that sex, whatever purpose it pursues, is associated with pleasure, yours and your partner. Also, remember that pleasure can be a separate goal of your intimate life.




Endless Criticism


Living together in a new status is a challenge for a couple. You'll be rubbing yourself, you'll probably run into misunderstandings and irritations. This is normal - the main thing is that the relationship does not turn into an exchange of reproaches.

It also happens that there is no open confrontation, but one of the spouses is stressed. And that's a problem, too.


In the first year you set the tone for your marriage. Therefore, despite all the differences, try to be more empathetic towards each other. Then in the future you will be able to cope with both criticism and other difficulties.
