The Importance of Adapting within Marriage

The Importance of Adapting within Marriage

Posted 2014-07-09 by Mihaela Schwartzfollow
A lot of things have changed about the way marriage is seen within the contemporary society. Some are for the best, some are for the worst. However, marriage continues to require a lot of adaptation skills and sometimes, compromises. While this might sound negative to some people, it is nevertheless, true. The simple fact that you live every day with the same person already says something about the importance of adapting to one another within the couple. There are several areas within which the two persons’ adapting skills are essential to their well-being and to the success of their relationship.


Daily routines

This topic touches almost all the aspects of a married couple’s life, from daily schedule, to meal times and various habits that a person might have. For instance, you might be a night owl, but your spouse is not. This does not mean, necessarily, that one of you has to switch to the other’s program. If you cannot find a solution for the two of you to go together to bed and wake up at about the same time, there are other ways of solving the issue. You can do the things that you love doing together at a time of the day both of you are up and available. Although it might seem difficult to stay up at night while the other one is sleeping for quite some time already, with mutual respect, things can be solved out.



Most couples have at least one meal together and this is usually dinner with active people. This normally involves eating the same food. But, what can you do when your preferences are irreconcilable? First of all, with a bit of open-mindedness, you can try each other’s preferences and see if there is a way to adapt to them. Then, if there is no such solution, cook for both of you and try new thing out. You might find some dishes both of you enjoy.


Sexual life

This is the part where you probably need the most adapting power and skills throughout your life. You may have already discovered what the other one likes to do in bed, but always remember that marriage is for the long run. Therefore, you will need something to spice things up from time to time. Moreover, people go through different periods in life and external events can have an effect upon somebody’s sexual appetite and mood.

Whether it is about food, daily schedule, the location for the next holiday or even sex, adaptation is always the key for a fulfilling relationship and a successful marriage.
