    Don’t be afraid if your parents had a failed marriage because every marriage is different and it doesn't mean yours will fail. But it does mean that you did not have a good example in that area, and you probably picked up some bad habits from your parents, so it may require extra effort from you to make your marriage work.

    Keep the lines of communication and discussion open. For example, you can discuss whether to have a baby or not, and when. Make compromises if you see the issue differently. The more important the issue is, the more you need to work towards mutual agreement, a win-win resolution, rather than a 50/50 "compromise".


  • List the problems you have.
  • Discuss what you worry about with your companion.
  • You two have to face the music and don’t forget communication is really important to you.


  • You should not avoid arguments in your relationship. Disagreement is healthy in small doses. Communication is important, and it’s a good way to solve the problems. Remember that your relationship is infinitely more important than what you are disagreeing over.
