For Better Or Worse? The Trials and Challenges of Married Life

The Challenges of Married Life

Do you still remember your marriage vows?

“For better, for worse…”

“In sickness and in health…”

“For richer, for poorer?

Marriage is not a walk in the park. This list covers most of the common issues, but your situation is different and the key point here is to face the hardship—whatever kind of problem it is—together with your husband.

These promises presuppose tough times. My husband and I went into our marriage with our eyes open, so there’s really no excuse for not bringing everything we have to the table when things.

Hardships of Married Life

These are the common hardships in marriage. As a married couple, you have to work together and get through these.

1. The Financial Struggle.

The stress associated with money issues can be overwhelming. But, in the end, it’s only money. Bear in mind that money has no power over your commitment to your marriage.

2. Immaturity.

Great relationships are supposed to get stronger and mature over time. If you still relate to one-another the same way you did when you first married, then it’s past time for your relationship to progress. Get involved in a couples group. You, as a couple has to invest in your marriage as if your life depends on it—because it really does.

3. Depression.

Everyone goes through “the blues” at times in our lives. It would help if you go the extra mile, about putting the needs of your spouse ahead of your own. Look to God for your source of inspiration and joyfulness, be a conduit of that joy to your spouse.

4. Lack of Connection.

Sometimes it happens the first year. Sometimes it takes a few years or more. Regardless of where we are on the time spectrum, boredom can easily occur. Not feeling special about the relationship is an issue for everyone. But it doesn’t have to be. Our obligation is to be intentional about the relationship. Your spouse didn’t fall for you in the first place without any effort on your part—so why not commit now?
