A happy marriage is about memories of togetherness, forgiveness of mistakes and promise not to give up on each other.
When in marriage, we tend to think that we can consult our partners about everything. It’s not a bad thing but it’s important to learn how to make your own decisions and be responsible. If you have been consulting your husband on your career path, friends and the likes, don’t let him make the final decision for you.
These are the four main decisions that a wife should make on her own independent of her hubby’s take:
- Career path- There are some men who think that they own their wives that it’s their jurisdiction to choose for their wives what career paths to follow. Don’t let your husband choose your career. He does not have an understanding of what’s best for you and what your passion is. It is you to make your dreams a reality by pursuing them and believing in them. When your husband sees that, he will definitely be proud and will support and guide you.
- How you should spend your money- It feels good when a woman is earning money she has worked hard for and it does not hurt to share it with your man, for whatever reasons. However, when it comes to how and when to spend it, that solely depends on you and your priorities and he does not have a voice over it. There is no need of asking your husband how you should spend your money not unless you need his financial guidance.
- Which circle of friends you should hang out with- As a grown adult, you have the right to choose who you want to hang out with. The list can have a drinking friend, shopping friend, gossip girlfriend, rave friend and so on but as long as you are aware of what you are up to, he has no obligation to meddle. Your husband should let you have a good time and should only come in maybe when you get influenced negatively.
- Getting body modifications- This is when you want to get a tattoo, stick on nails, boob job, braces and all those additions that you feel will make you more comfortable with yourself. Your husband can give his opinion about it but not decide for you if you need to get this or that. At the end of the day, it’s your body.
