7 Things You May be Doing to Sabotage Your Marriage

We all have baggage.  It may be heavier for some of us than it is for others, but we all have it.  The question is, how do we manage that baggage – and even more importantly – what happens if we don’t get rid of it (or at least learn how to keep it from damaging any part of our lives) before we end up in a committed relationship?

We can go into our relationships with so much baggage that we begin to sabotage something that really has a bright future.  We are not doing it consciously, but nonetheless, it is still happening.  Maybe it’s something we say, maybe it’s a behavior we exhibit, or maybe it’s an expectation we have of our spouse that’s causing the damage.  And the truth is, we might actually think this behavior is either helping things or protecting us, but it’s doing neither.

The good news is that baggage can be dumped, attitudes and behaviors can change, and whatever is sabotaging your relationship can get the boot (if you are willing to give it).  Here are seven things you may be doing to sabotage your relationship. Maybe with a few adjustments your sabotaging days can come to an end.

BMWK Family, is there anything you are doing that may be sabotaging your marriage?

1)   A Lack of Trust

If you don’t trust your spouse, things simply won’t work.  Maybe you feel like trusting someone too much leads to trouble, but not trusting them enough can do the very same thing.

I think autumn is one of the best times of the year to go out on a first date. In the summer, women worry about the humidity causing their hair to frizz and their makeup to melt. In the winter, we fear snowstorms canceling dinner plans or shutting us indoors all weekend. But there’s something romantic about autumn. Maybe it’s the thought of walking through the orange and brown leaves falling from the trees or getting cozy in the corner of a coffee shop sipping pumpkin spiced lattes. Whatever the reason, the season is a perfect time to get to know someone new.

Here are a few awesome autumn dates you’ll fall in love with. What awesome autumn dates have you gone on?

Visit a Pumpkin Patch

I haven't been to a pumpkin patch since I was a kid. This would be a great way to reminiscence about the past and possibly create new memories for the future. Pick a pumpkin and then have a carving contest. Or, bake a pumpkin treat together. If pumpkins aren't your cup of tea, check out an apple orchard.  Photo Credit: MLA Photography
