It may come as a surprise that many people in a marriage still feel single even after several years. Such a feeling is generally not a good one as it works against what a marriage is all about.
Recognizing that you still feel single in a marriage is the first step towards addressing the issue.
However, many couples feel that divorce is the only solution when this situation occurs.
What Does It Mean Feel Single In Marriage?
You are taking actions, making decisions, and doing things based on your self-interest rather than looking at it from a couple’s point of view.
To put it simply, you think of “I” instead of “We”. While couples are comprised of two individuals who have their own set of goals, the difference between those who think as a couple as opposed to being single is based on putting your self-interest above your marriage.
For example, when you are offered the chance to play poker with the guys, do you quickly say “Yes” and then wonder how you can get this past your spouse, or do you make your decision based on what’s in the best interest of you and your partner?
Many happy marriages have both the husband and wife pursuing their interests, but all decisions are tempered by making them from the point of view of the couple, not the individual.
