Expect the unexpected when getting to “I do.”
Marriage isn’t for everyone. However, if you’re thinking that it might be for you, it’s good to understand the risks involved.
Marriage is a business (and if you don’t think it’s a business, try getting a divorce.)
Everything worth doing has some risk involved. Here are three marriage risks you might not have thought of if you’re thinking about getting married.
1. You’re going to grow.
Everyone talks about wanting to grow but here’s the thing: We can’t grow alone; we have to be reflected.
We like entertaining the idea of getting married to someone. It will bring out the best and the worst in you.
The best in you will cause you to stretch and take on the cares and feelings of another person. The worst in you will resent these same cares and feelings and find it to be an invasion of your self-interest.
Growth is painful, but you don’t get there by standing on the sidelines. The mere act of entertaining the idea of marrying someone is an instant catalyst for change.
