These are the top 10 events that bring a husband and wife closer together during their married life. They are arranged chronologically from the writer’s experience and are mainly events and not activities.
The Intro: Married Life
More people end up getting married in the world, and throughout married life, couples experience the best and worse of times. They are as unpredictable as a first-time roller-coaster ride and may affect the bond between couples. Below are 10 events in a couple’s lifetime that they most likely will experience and strengthen their bond. Note that these are mainly events and not activities, and these have been arranged chronologically based on my own experience with my wife. We are six years married, have gone through some of the events below and foresee the other events coming to our life together.
Moving In Day
This usually is tiring and exciting. It is where tastes mix and decisions, arrangements and negotiations are made. In the end, the apartment or house reflects the both of you, and you will always look back at this as Day One of married life.
Success and Achievements
Promotions, the establishment of a profitable business, that chosen stock rising, winning the championship, lottery or literally climbing a high mountain brings out the feeling of elation and the very first person one will surely look for and celebrate with is one’s husband or wife.
Planning, the coming, arrival and taking care of the baby surely builds the bond further between couples. Here, they are immersed in new activities that involve the two of them with the baby. The baby is a living being representing the likes and features of the couple. The baby also plants in their heads that they should be together.
Beach-front villa, new car, giant-screen TV, his and hers Rolexes, own house, a painting bought only for $10 but is worth $100,000 in the market, this list goes on forever in this consumer-driven environment we have nowadays. Like Success and Achievements, this gives couples a feeling of euphoria. This likewise generally follows Success and Achievements too, and hopefully, will not lead to Going Broke and Separated, which is not in this list, of course.
External Menace or Intimidation from Others
Rude relatives, neighbours, bosses or any other third party that confronts couples verbally or even physically brings forth their unity. Cavemen belonged to tribes and retaliate against other tribes that attack them. This is still the same in present-time even down to the basic partnership between a husband and wife. When there is a third party threat of any kind, expect the development of a tag-team. The caveman still dwells in each of us.
