Before marriage, many women lead very independent lives.
They work, pay their bills, have their own responsibilities and don’t have to ask for anyone’s approval.
They have no curfew, they don’t have to tell anyone where they’re going or with who.
That sort of independence is welcome in a single woman’s life. The problem lies when single women get married but retain the same lifestyle they had when single.
This was hard for me too, because I had always been very independent.
Adapting to this new lifestyle in which we must change drastically isn’t easy, but recognizing that the change is necessary is a good start.
When we get married, this sort of independence should not continue, otherwise, it will bring forth big problems.
Even if my husband isn’t home and I have to go out, I always call and tell him where I am or where I’m going.
Dare- Task 36
“Analyze your attitude and see if this sort of Independence has been the reason behind problems between you and your husband. If so, change this situation.”
