Just a thought..

When I was younger, my motto was to never submit to my partner and if I do get married I will still have it my way - 3 relationships after, I am now 33 and with a husband. I never thought that I'd be submissive as I am right now but I couldn't be any happier. I realized that as a wife you are not entirely giving up your rights for someone to feel good about himself but knowing when to be firm and when to not be. I realized that men tend to be gentler and sweeter when they are heard. And they are actually better husbands when they know that you're not going to throw anything at them when they make a mistake. I'm happy I've given up my stubbornness in place of love because I can talk to my husband like a friend and he to me. we haven't argued about anything big; it has become a habit for both of us to sit down and talk about things and plan things together. I never knew marriage can be this good. I'm proud and happy I found someone who made me feel comfortable and at ease.

it's a common thing these days but there's this thing I often keep in mind and that is to be realistic. It is okay to have expectations and standards; its what keeps your relationship afloat. But when it comes down to reality - being practical instead of having higher expectations is the key :) but I hope yours will go well anyway. thanks for your response!
