You Work Harder At It
I remember when I was single and dating having a man wasn’t the end all be all that some women made it out to be. Sure, I had no problem having a boyfriend – I think I even thrive when I’m in a relationship. But I also enjoyed my own company and liked being single too, so when a guy acted a fool or said something I didn’t like…or I simply got bored…it was easy for me to just bounce. I could keep it as serious or casual as I wanted, and if after 6 months I was ready to take a step back or just end a relationship altogether, I could. But when you’re married, you can’t leave just because he said something you didn’t like. Now, if I get bored, I have to find a way to keep that spark going. Complacency is not an option, unless I want a dull, boring, lifeless marriage.
