After the notecards have been sent and you’re resolved into life as married couple, you’re probably still basking in the shine of married happiness. But does that feel-good feel have an expiry date?
When love, passion and feelings for each other running high, a lot of couples think their relationship will continue forever. After experiencing the honeymoon phase, marital satisfaction spikes right around their wedding, and declines in a couple of years, when many couples reported feeling “extremely unhappy” in their marriages. The phenomenon is real, but luckily, it doesn’t affect every bond and marital happiness may decrease in this phase.
For females, the loss of fulfillment was expected by a little bit lower-than-average emotions of fulfillment during the involvement. Among men, those who revealed signs of depressive disorders, alcohol addiction, or romantic associate assault at the start of their connection were more likely to experience discontentment over time.
