I have changed a lot since my marriage.Before marriage I used to hang out with friends , booze almost 4-5 days a week & used to smoke 20-25 cigarretes a day.After my marriage just because of my wife I have changed all my habits.Now its 1-2 days with my friends that too in the evening , booze only on saturdays & 2-3 cigarettes a day. Even after marriage for about an year I used to be like what I mentioned earlier.My wife was not hurt if I used to hang out with friends but got very upset with my booze & cigarette habits.If I booze & come she would not eat & sleep at all.It made me realize how much she loves me.From then on I changed my habit as I have mentioned above & now we are happy.I am trying to quit smoking but unable to.In the near future I will defenitely quit.This much I have changed because of my wife. How about you?Any changes for the sake of your partner?

Yes, I have changed a lot for my partner. I used to spend more time with my friends before, that I gave up for my partner.Many petty things I have changed for the sake of my partner.

I'm glad that you've got a great wife and you must love her very much indeed. My husband used to smoke and booze like you . But after meeting me i asked him not to drink and smoke any more he did quit all these things. Well i don't quite change any habits for him because i'm a person grown up in a very strict family so i don't have many bad habits . We are now happy as you do . Thanks.

I hate being change buy anybody, but sometimes because of being obedient I always follow him, it's because of respect. I can't help it. But I try not to change for him. I want to change for myself not for other people not even for my partner.

of course, i think all of us want to change so that we will have good relationship with our partner. cause we always want to feel loved and make our partner loved more by changing our bad habits or anything that gets in the way of our relationship.

Getting married is the hard decision made to each partner just to make the relation working.In my case, i change my all from the time i got married but a lot of patience i do to the better result for there are some case in my part that i hardly changed it immediately but to take it step by step for my family. It is not about my personal needs is important, i need to be change just because it is necessary just to save my family.

Good that you are sensitive to your wife's feelings. Maybe some people change when they get married or as they age but not my husband. His love for the booze and his friends will travel to the next world. He doesn't seems to change and I don't see it coming from him in future either. How sad!

You change your habit smoking, which is good, keep in mind that you change your bad habit is for yourself, not for your wife, because she thinks that it is for your health, oh talking about me .. well i think i don't have bad habits to change, so i stick like the way i am Have a nice day krupesh

Hi Krupesh, You are really a good husband. I can not think of anything I changed for my partner, and never hear he complain :) But my husband do change some habit, he used to be lazy, after marriage and have baby, he is getting diligent. But no matter how, he just can not get rid of smoking.

there are some habits that i really need to change. Like getting late when we want to meet some friends of ours or if we have a date. i really changed it and if we have a date i wake up early to get ready for the day. but there are some habits of mine that i guess he already accepted. as the saying goes "love me for what i am".

Sure, I have tried to change myself because of my husband. I think the couples shall try to adjust to each other so that there will have more in common. Such as my husband and I have different taste for food, music and so on. But sometimes I will especially eat or listen to something that he likes and he does the same, too. I love China

I believe that when you get married both people make some changes for their partners. Both me and my husband have made some changes to make the other happy. and the longer that you are together those changes do not seem that important any more.
