Some people believe that rules are made to be broken. However, when it comes to relationships, we tend to follow a certain set of rules, such as not going to bed angry or finding compromises whenever we argue, because we want to keep our relationships going. However, you would be surprised to know that breaking certain rules can make your bonds stronger and even healthier.
Also, you need to keep in mind that if certain rules are applicable to some couples, it doesn’t mean that the same rules will work for you. Some relationship rules, instead of making you happier, make you anxious and worried.
Thus, below are listed 4 relationship rules which you should try to break in order to have a stronger bond with your partner.
- Never go to bed angry. Arguing before bedtime is never a good idea. If you know that you will reach a compromise, go for it, but if you know that your opinions still differ, you can decide to talk about that matter the next morning when both of you are calmer and more relaxed. Also, you will have more time to think about the issue and come up with better solutions.
- Healthy couples don’t argue. Out of all rules, this one should definitely be broken. Although people believe that those couples are happy which don’t argue, in fact only those couples who express their views and communicate are the happiest ones. Couples are made of two people with different outlooks on life, thus, arguing is inevitable and you shouldn’t avoid it.
- You have to do everything together. Another wrong rule is that people who are in love should do everything together. They should have the same friends and enjoy the same activities. However, in such a way people forget their lives outside their relationship. They become too dependent on each other and they don’t even have time to miss each other.
- White lies keep your partner happy. We all have told white lies to our other halves because we didn’t want to hurt them or because we knew it would make them happy. However, you have to be careful about it as telling one white lie can soon result into telling more and more lies, which will breed dishonesty in your relationship.
