3 Tips For Men To Keep Their Lifestyle After Marriage

If you are engaged and plan to be married soon, one of the things that may be at the top of your mind is the ways in which your life may change after marriage. Although some small changes may occur, they most likely will not be as drastic as you may think and there is probably nothing to worry about. 

However, if you live a very manly lifestyle and are marrying a woman who is into more girly things, you probably can’t help but wonder about the lifestyle changes that may be ahead of you. 

You don’t have to change yourself for someone who loves you, though! Here are 3 helpful tips for keeping your lifestyle after you say “I do.” 

Be Open And Honest With Your New Spouse

Don’t hold anything back from your new spouse – you are married, after all! Let them know how important it is to you that you continue to have the opportunity to partake in things that you love and that you want to hold onto your individuality and the things that make you, you! A loving partner will understand this without issue, so it’s up to you to make sure to start the conversation. 

Make Compromises

Most spouses will be a lot more likely to allow you to do the types of things you want to do, whether it be going out for beers with coworkers, hacking concrete structures, or working on your car – as long as you make compromises with them and do the things they want to do sometimes. 

An example of such a compromise would be if you agree to go to a baby shower with your wife when you don’t really want to, she has to agree to allow you to spend the weekend doing woodwork in your shop without interruption. 

These types of compromises are necessary in any marriage and especially so if you intend to keep the lifestyle you know and love. 

Stay True To Yourself

Just because you are married now doesn’t mean your beliefs, values, personality, or preferences need to change in any way. Remember, your spouse married you because they love you for who you are. Staying true to yourself is one of the best things you can do to care for yourself, keep your marriage happy, and maintain your independence. 

Listen to your heart and do what you think is best. If this means doing something your spouse disagrees with, just go back to the first tip on this list and make sure you talk to them about it! 

Keeping your lifestyle intact after marriage may take a little bit of work, but it’s not impossible and will be worth it in the end as long as both you and your spouse end up happy! Hopefully these tips help you to get there.
