Do you have to always make your partner happy in your marriage?
When two people are married they feel a need to satisfy the needs of the other one. The constant need to make the other one happy is often in conversation. What do you think?
No. In fact it might, in certain circumstances, be required to make them unhappy. If a certain behavior is causing harm to the other then you have to step in and help. That causes friction. But it is right. How about when one is over spending do to an addiction to shopping - even on line?
This may be satisfying a need but it ain't about making them happy.
Nice to hear from you Devika, I trust all is well.
No, I don't think one has to always make their partner happy.
However couples "in love" tend to want their partner to (be happy). They hate to see them miserable or unhappy.
The reality is there will always be something you don't see eye to eye on or disagree about. In those moments you have to agree to disagree if it's a core belief.
Otherwise if it's not a "deal breaker" seek to find a way to compromise. No one gets "everything" they want!
Not at all. Even to try would be futile waste of time, since ' happy-ness' is strictly personal emotional state, based on instant option. ( Though deepest in love, two people are always two individuals.) We live contented with what we have, who we are, trying to create the best of given circumstances.
It is not possible for one person to fill your every emotional need from friendship to love to companionship to entertainment. This is why men and women should have friends, not just try to be everything to their partner.
