Furthermore, it’s important to not criticize your partner out in the world. The general rule of thumb is that you don’t tell people something about your partner that you haven’t already shared with your partner.
When I was married, I talked to my friends WAY more about the problems in my marriage than I did with my husband. This didn’t do our relationship any good because we weren’t communicating and giving our relationship a chance to improve. And when we were together, I treated my husband with contempt because I no longer respected him.
I am no longer married.
So, make sure you treat each other with respect, both inside and outside the relationship.
