Talk to us. I want to get married, but I am afraid of losing my friends. I know of many people who have lost their friends after being married.
Please explain to me why people, especially women, lose their friends after marriage? One is silver, the other gold. They fade. It happens. Careers, lives, interests, and goals change. When you get married, your focus changes. It is no longer all about you, but about you two as a couple, and eventually about the children as well if you become parents.
You will find that you may drift apart from your current friends if they remain single because your interests no longer are the same. All of us have just 24 hours a day. If we are also working or attending school, we find that after spending time with our husbands, cleaning, and cooking, etc. At the same time, we can develop rich friendships with other couples, and that is important. We all need people who share our same interests to be a part of our lives. Your true friends will stick around because your relationship is based on each other, not your common interests.
It will make your relationship stronger in the long run.
Guys need to have guy friends, and women thrive on having girlfriends they can confide in. Married couples will have different interests and should encourage each other to pursue them. It is a matter of prioritizing life to include the things that are really important.
Of course, to plan one thing into your life usually means less time for other things. Make sure that the things on your schedule are really important for your life goals. You will be fine. You will find ways to balance your time with friends during your courtship with your future husband. If you have close friends who have not only survived the process but grown closer to you through it, make them your bridesmaids!
They will most likely be around for a long time. If you need to talk with someone about how to juggle friends and marriage, our free, confidential online mentors would be happy to help you sort it out. Just use the "Connect" tab below.
