It is a sweet feeling to love and be loved even though sometimes relationships can be very confusing.
There are times when relationships need a lot of togetherness. And at some other times, it needs space to grow.Knowing how to give space in a relationship, and yet stay together, is an art that every couple needs to learn.
Gilbert loves his wife very much, but he gets irritated every time she wants to accompany him to every football match, even when he insists that it is a boys’ day out. This has brought a rift in his marriage and his wife has refused to accept to stay home and take care of their small child, while he is enjoying himself out there with his friends. This man has no space to do anything because his wife is always hovering wherever he is.
This is not a universal problem though it has become common; I know for a fact that once a woman becomes a mother, everything else ceases its importance but the child. We are now seeing a new breed of young working class women who are running their marriages in bars because they think what a man can do, they can do better.
I stand to be corrected. I might be called an old-fashioned woman, but really, what is a young woman with a small baby at home doing in a bar every evening following a man everywhere? Is it not enough when your partner needs his space to spend some time alone with his boys?
Funny as it might sound, this is a disease suffered mostly by women. Rarely would a man follow his wife to the salon or any of her rendezvous with her girlfriends.What is this then that young women today do not understand that a man needs to be a man?
For example, when two people are kissing, they are definitely not going to be locked in a kiss forever; someone is bound to come up for air. That is why love needs space to grow.
To have a perfect relationship with your partner, you and your partner need to understand how to give each other space.
Your partner may be screaming for space in a relationship, even if they don’t say it out loud. Does your partner enjoying doing things by themselves, or do they prefer doing something together – with you? That could reveal a lot about your partner’s personality and how independent they are.
Knowing how to give space may be extremely difficult, especially at the beginning. But considering the stakes and what you may stand to lose, you should train yourself to become adept at this art. If this is not rightly balanced out, one person becomes uncaring or unemotional and the other person becomes needy or clingy in love.
By learning how to give space in a relationship, you’d learn to keep the excitement alive by becoming a better individual with your own special qualities and memories. And as long as you have something new to share with your partner, your relationship will stay happy and exciting.
Being close to each other and spending time is important, but to come closer and become better individuals, you have to understand that relationships need space to grow and blossom.
