6 Relationship Myths That Need Busting

Different people have different concepts when it comes to defining a healthy relationship. Some people follow the age old trajectory of dating – engagement – marriage and kids. Others don’t agree with this belief and feel that “traditional” views are too restrictive. Whatever be the case, as long as both parties have a similar view on how to approach life, and are able to respect each other, there is a very good chance that they will have a happy relationship.

However, there are a number of myths which have been perpetuated about happy relationships that many people readily believe. These myths are not true at all and could create unrealistic expectations, causing problems down the road. Let’s have a look at 6 of the most common relationship myths….

Myth #1
They Have the Same Interests
Even though sharing some interests can be fantastic, most relationships flourish only when there is some activity that you enjoy, which your partner might not. Spending time apart is almost as important as spending time together, for a thriving relationship. Having separate interests could also allow you and your partner to teach each other new and interesting things. If you feel that you have nothing in common with your companion, you should consider doing something together on a regular basis, such as a weekly trip to a museum or a cooking class.

Myth #2
They Don’t Fight
When two people are in a relationship, they will find themselves in the middle of a spat sooner or later. Fighting is completely normal and it shows that you are voicing your opinion and trying to resolve something that irritates you. However, if you find that you are fighting all the time, it might be time to reassess your relationship.

Myth #3
They Love Each Other’s Friends & Family
It is unreasonable to expect one person to love all of another’s friends and relatives. However, people in a healthy relationship do make it a point to treat family members or friends they don’t like with respect. If you feel that someone is legitimately irritating, talk openly with your partner about it, instead of giving that person the cold shoulder.

Myth #4
They Love to Live Together All The Time
Many people believe that two people in love have to be together at all times. This is nothing more than a myth because both the partners require time away from each other to do things they enjoy. It is also very important because both should socialize with their friends and do things they like because their partners may not necessarily be into what they like.

Myth #5
They Follow a Typical Life Pattern
A typical relationship involves dating, moving in, engagement, marriage, children, etc., in that order. While this pattern is wonderful, and suits a large number of people, not all relationships work the same way. The trick is to make sure that you and your partner agree on the important bits instead of following what you’ve been told. Otherwise, life could be miserable in the long run. We have to do it because everyone does it is not the right mantra.

Myth #6
They Don’t Have to Work on the Relationship
One of the biggest relationship myths out there is that “perfect” couples don’t work on their relationship at all, and that everything seems nice because they just are or that things fall into place on their own. Nothing could be further from the truth. Every good relationship requires some form of sacrifice and compromise. That doesn’t mean that you have to change yourself completely or constantly apologize for your actions. The idea is to figure out what makes you better both as an individual and a couple.
