In your first month of marriage, you’ll probably have a lot of thoughts going through your head. Things like what you should or should not do, but you probably won't give much thought to what you should avoid. So while you’re enjoying time with your new partner, here are 3 things you should avoid.
It’s tempting to start calling your friends and family for dinner or a party to see your new home. But it’s best to start by focusing on figuring out the boundaries of your marriage, and where your family and friends fit before inviting them over. It’s important to build a strong support system, but it’s healthier to nurture your partnership first by spending quality time while exploring your new life, without any interference
Avoid Making Major Life DecisionsYou probably don’t want to get yourself into another major life decision, especially that you’re just coming out of one of the biggest decisions of your life. We all know it feels like it’s the perfect time to start planning your future and home together, but try not to commit to another major decision before settling down. For example, don’t do any major renovations like retiling the floors or painting the walls, you’ll want your honeymoon phase to live through the first weeks of marriage and moving things around will surely break the Zen.
Avoid Having The Baby TalkYou and your spouse are probably on the same page when it comes to children. You both probably had a plan on this specific topic, so it’s best to not revisit it during the first month of marriage. It could create lots of pressure and will tie both of you to a goal-oriented feeling, which will limit your excitement and journey of getting to know each other. Start having new experiences as a couple before drowning into the responsibilities that come with getting married.
