There are too many double standards in relationships that can ruin a good thing. Being aware of them can help you avoid your relationship’s demise.
Will we ever be able to rid the world of double standards in relationships? Probably not. But you can learn about them and why they’re horrible to have – especially if you want your relationship to last a lifetime.
People aren’t really blind to the fact that guys can do stuff girls can’t and vice versa. We’re all usually privy to these toxicities in our relationships but we don’t often do anything about them. And those who ignore them altogether usually don’t end up with a happily ever after.
If you’re complicit, you’re part of the problem
We can blame whatever we want when our relationship goes bad but if you aren’t pointing the finger at yourself, you’re not doing yourself any favors. A lot of the time, issues in relationships can be traced back to double standards.
You both have them and then get upset that they’re even there to begin with. It’s not fair to argue over something that can be prevented in the first place. But not doing anything about them and being complicit means you’re contributing to the issues that will break up your relationships.
