If you ask any married couple, they will tell you that they can have conversations with their significant others about anything and everything under the sun. But, do you think that is genuinely true? In your lives, you may have come across many couples who like steering away from discussing certain subjects with each other. While everyone is entitled to their own secrets, there are some topics that every couple does need to have honest conversations about. Here, we bring you some of those topics:
1. The Financial Dilemmas
You may have been expecting this one on the list, so let’s address the elephant in the room first. Among most married couples, there is always one person who is more financially responsible than the other. But, it is super important that you stay on the same page about finances with your partner. This may include things like- “how do you allocate your finances?” or “what can be a feasible savings goal for the both of us?”. Of course, all these questions cover this topic broadly. But, the key rule is to let your partner know if something bothers you when it comes to the “money” department.
At times, couples can avoid expressing their feelings to each other. Be it to avoid unnecessary fights or due to the fear of hurting sentiments, you may not want to tell your significant other that something they did hurt you. But, if your partner’s action hurts you, it’s crucial that you communicate. He/she may not even be aware of the fact that you felt bad. By letting him/her know, you give them a chance to explain their side of the story. Also, by letting know of the issues that matter to you, you’ll be giving him/her the opportunity to redeem themselves.
3. The Bedroom Matters
The earlier you start talking about your “bedroom” life, the easier it is going to be. But, you can start doing so at any point in time. You will gradually reach a stage where talking about intimacy is not going to be uncomfortable anymore. This will allow you to have an open discussion about lovemaking, where you can share your thoughts about everything- the good, the bad, and even the ugly.
4. The Funny Stuff
Somewhere along the way, as responsibilities hit couples, they forget to laugh with each other. In fact, laughter seems like a distraction that takes you away from the long to-do list of responsibilities. And, even more so when you don the hat of parents. In a very sneaky way, it tends to disintegrate the relationship. So, try and live in the moment. Cherish and revel in the little moments that you share with your family.
5. The Future Goals
Young couples don’t really face a problem having such conversations. In fact, it is very much a part of you in the beginning. However, as you get used to your daily routine with time, such conversations become more and more sparse. So, while you have to live in the moment, you do need to have a vision for your future together.
You may not think of it as a big deal. For many couples, this conversation may not come up ever before marriage. Either there are couples who are on the same page when it comes to spiritual beliefs or there are others who never talk about this just to avoid a passionate agreement that ends in the same way. But, it is never too late to have this conversation. You can always have a chat and try to reach a middle ground if you can.
7. The Embarrassing Stuff
In a way, this can also fall under the “funny” category. But, then there are times that the embarrassing stuff can also be serious. This is the time when you can open up a dialogue with your partner. And, he/she may give you a new perspective or the strength to combat what’s bothering you. Or, you both may just end up sharing a laugh with each other later on!
