Marriage is sacred, and it’s forever, but not everyone wants it. They want to wait till they have found their better half. They want to take this step with someone they love.

And when couples are madly in love, they decide to make that big commitment to each other. But little did they understand that it’s not all honeymoons and love. They might get irritated, and they might want to run away.

The below quotes perfectly revels what marriage looks like. Hurry and read ’em all before you tie a knot so that you can understand what you are signing up for.

Sometimes, it’s passive-aggressive failure to do the chores.

“If one person takes on too much of the household labor, it can cause a lot of trouble, but if both people are equally disinclined to complete the chores, then maybe it will be the thing that brings them together.”

Normally, I avoid gender stereotypes, but seriously: why do guys do this?

If one person is taking forever to get ready, it’s normal for the other one to get mad. And here the gender rule does not imply. So, here the person is left only with two options. The faster one should either take on more of the prep tasks — like getting kids ready — or they should know their SO well enough to perfectly time things so that they are ready at the same moment.

This is my parents.

“Whenever my sister and I go somewhere with our parents we inevitably end up sharing a very specific eye roll with each other whenever Mum freaks out at Dad about another driver and then they start arguing over it.

My parents have been married 40 years, so this is just how they show their love, I guess.”

And that’s probably the key.

f you want to not only survive your marriage but thrive as a couple, you probably need to embrace each other’s quirks and learn to love them.

If you argue over every small thing, then when the big stuff happens, you won’t have the skills to work through them together.

But seriously, Mum: One day we’re going to buy you horse blinders for road trips.
