6 Common Mistakes in a Relationship – Part 2

November 15th, 2009 ·

Do You Prioritize Your Relationship?


Part Two – we’re back! With our favorite:

Common Mistake #4: Lack of romance

When we are first together as couples, we tend to be romantic. We ring up just to say ‘I love you’. We leave notes for each other to find. Unfortunately, real life can get in the way of romance, and we can find that we’ve lost the romantic habit without even realizing it.

Always kiss your partner before leaving the house. Hold hands when you watch television. Give each other compliments. Make sure you get out for a ‘date’ once a week – even if you have children and have to get a babysitter.

Common Mistake #5: Different attitudes to money

Sex and religion used to be the most difficult subjects for couples to tackle. Now, it seems to be money. So have a big ‘money conversation’ early on and often in a relationship to establish how various expenditures are going to be met.

It helps to have a joint account for all big outgoings like mortgages. But keep personal accounts so that what’s left after household expenses is yours to spend as you wish.

Talk about financial anxieties or irritations before they become major problems and they will be less likely to damage your relationship.

Common Mistake #6: Fear of Change

Sometimes our relationship fears make us afraid our partner will change; other times we fear he or she won’t at all. Even good changes can be hard to deal with. When familiar habits and routines are changed, we feel a sense of unease because we have adjustments to make, new routines to create. 

Panic buttonTalking honestly about changes is the best way to deal with this common relationship problem. Discussing relationship fears, hopes, motivations, and practical issues will make changes blend in with the daily routine in a much smoother way. Even fighting about your feelings is better than repressing or stuffing them down.
