Myth #1: Living together is bad for the relationship
According to research, a couple who shares an address before marriage has better chances of having a happy marriage than a couple who doesn’t. What you need to be sure of, however, is that moving in together is a step for bigger things ahead, and not just a way to save rent money.
Myth #2: You should never go to bed angry
Human beings, by nature, cannot do much logical reasoning while they’re angry. So if you want to solve your fight with your guy five minutes after you have fought, chances are you will end up fighting more. The best thing to do is sleep on it, but decide to resolve the issue the next day, when both of you are calm and collected.
Myth #3: Sex, if not spontaneous, is not hot!
How can sex be spontaneous every single time in a long-standing relationship? In fact, most of the toe-curling, sheet-gripping sex happens when it is planned in advance. Imagine scented candles, sexy lingerie, silken sheets and lilting music. All of this can only be orchestrated, which, believe it or not, makes sex steamier.
Myth #4: Avoid discussing money before marriage
Agreed. Talking about money with your significant other can be a tad embarrassing. But you need to figure out if both of you are on the same page financially, especially if you are thinking of getting hitched. Even if you’re not, you must discuss whether you will take turns to pay the full bill or go dutch when you go out.
Myth #5: If you really love him, you will know exactly what he needs
It is generally assumed that if you love a person, you ought to know every single thing about him, even what he’s thinking and feeling. Sometimes, we assume that we know everything about our partner’s innermost feelings. More often than not, this is not true, and all of us need to keep the lines of communication open at all times.
