#2 – You’ve been practicing.
If you work on establishing boundaries before marriage, when you actually get married you will have been practicing those boundaries, learning what works and what doesn’t. You will have established behaviors and practices that work for both of you, that keep you happier together.
So, when the wedding is over and the birdseed has been thrown, you can feel confident that you can ride off into the sunset together, knowing what is important to both of you and that you both can do the work!
#3 – You are a team.
After marriage comes extended family and babies. Having established boundaries will help you stay strong as a couple while facing these challenges.
Extended families are wonderful and sometimes not so much. Traditions that have been established in one family sometimes don’t work in other families. Mother-in-laws mean well but can be interfering. Babies completely rock your world in so many ways.
If you have a truly strong bond that is the result of the boundaries that you have established, you will have a much better chance of riding out those challenges together.
Establishing boundaries before marriage is a key part building a strong bond between the two of you.
I know that we all think that we have found our soul mate and best friend and that nothing can possibly come between us but the reality is is that marriage is long and hard and it takes work.
If you know what to expect from, and of, each other before you are married then you will have a much better chance of truly being happy.
