    Can married life change a man?

    Most men when single are different in behavior.  For example, they will talk and be friendly to close friends Once married they become isolated and forget they have had those friends. Did you lose a male friend due to  him  getting married?

    I think marriage changes our priorities more than our personalities.  My partner and I have a lot of friends that we don't interact with as much because we are raising a family, caring for a household, paying bills etc.  It's not that they are isolated or forget they have friends, it's that they have other priorities that come first.

    Absolutely, married life do change a man, and this is due to his wife who'll completely invade his new life.

      I think both partners invade each others lives and change in  different ways. Thank you

      The point is that married life brings a big change in anyone's life.

    Can married life change a man?.....DDE, .By it's very nature, marriage changes both men and women, their priorities, responsibilities, behavior, habits.....
    Saying those 2 little words, "I DO," causes an avalanche of "change"  in our daily lives and our perspectives on everything we previously viewed through the eyes of a single individual.

    Let's just say.....If we each have chosen the near-ideal mate.....change is a necessity and in most all cases, inevitable.

    You don't necessarily have to believe this here and now based upon some opinions.  Just check this theory out with any marriage counselor or divorce Attorney......smile......Great question.

    I think it's quite common for a married man to bond and be more active in his wife's circle of family and friends.
    If a woman or man for that matter had a "platonic friendship" with someone of the opposite sex they're not likely to have nearly as much "one on one" time with each other or talk on the phone as often.
    Love usually trumps platonic friendships.
    Most people if given an ultimatum to cut back from seeing or dealing with a "platonic friend" by the person they are madly "in love" with they most likely will let that friendship die on the vine. Not many husbands would want their wives going out to lunch, movies, or talking on the phone for hours with other men. The same is true of women whose husbands have (female) friends.
    Platonic friends spending less time together is to be expected for the most part even if it's unintentional after one enters into a relationship or gets married. Marriage is the bonding of two lives to make one family. If you're still doing all the things you did when you were single and dedicating the same amount of time to friends and family there is a possibility you may be short changing your spouse and "immediate family". A man's (priorities) does change after getting married.

    I have found most people do not change. They can change when they want to but we can't change someone else. Sometimes they will change in response to us changing, but often we try to make them change and that does not work. That has been my experience.

    Married life can change a man because he is no longer alone. Now he has to be part of a team. Its no longer just me, me and me. Its now us, us and us. What do we eat? Where do we go? How many kids do we want? Where do we live?
