The idea that love is all a relationship needs to flourish sure does sound nice, but it’s usually not the case. It takes a lot more than just love to make a marriage last. If The Beatles wrote, “All you need is love … and financial security, a shared interest in having kids, and common religious beliefs,” maybe fewer marriages would end in divorce. But we’ll never know. What we do know is you shouldn’t feel like a total failure if your marriage isn’t working out.
Some people are so blinded by love, they forget to have meaningful discussions about big issues they’ll face down the road. So, if you said “I do” just a bit too soon, some of these points may sound familiar. Here are 13 signs you got married too soon.
1. You thought marriage would fix your problems
Just as having kids won’t fix problems that already exist in your marriage, getting hitched in the first place certainly won’t fix any underlying relationship issues, either. FamilyShare mentions marriage won’t solve problems, such as feeling lonely and being unhappy. If you got married because you thought it’d solve your personal or relationship issues, it won’t be long before you realize it was too soon.
