You’ve been told your whole life to play nice and share. When it comes to marriage, sometimes you have to play a little dirty.
Everyone wants you to do something, and because you’re a nurturer, you tend to say yes. Every. Single. Time. From helping a friend move to volunteering at your kid’s school, you face lots of demands on your precious 24 hours. Say yes when you can, but say no when it interferes with your couple time. Guard your priority of making your time with your hubby the most important part of your day.
Men and women, even married people, are becoming increasingly independent. While it’s healthy to have some independence in your relationship, be sure to question whether each decision is best for the marriage, not for either individual.
