Marriage is a serious vow and commitment made by a couple to spend the rest of their lives together. By taking part in this journey called marriage, the lives of the people around you can change just as much as your own. For some, the opinion about your significant other can hold serious weight.
What happens when the person you love and will be married to, is not to the liking of your close family members and friends? Do you stop loving them or do you move forward? A lot of people have difficulties in their marriage because different opinions from outside sources leak and intrude the establishment of the couple. This usually stems from not being able to let go of those who are close to you and holding in what they want or feel is best for you at a higher level than what you want for yourself. By partaking in this chain of reactions, it can be very difficult for you to move forward with the woman or man of your dreams. When you do not take in the idea of what you want and what you seek, you will never be happy.
For several people, family is such an important part in life because it is filled with your loved ones and those you really care for. Without family, many believe you don’t have anything, especially because it signifies so much; support system, love, laughter, strong wiliness, structure and much more. So the opinion of those close to you (family or friends) tends to matter more than your own.
There is nothing wrong with evaluating the opinion of others in your life especially when they are seeking your best interest but be cognizant and don’t forget what makes you happy. Balance is the strong objective when combining marriage and those who love you (family and friends.) To love both parties at an equal level may be challenging times but it is the best way to keep great relationships with those who mean the most to you.
