Human being are very complex in nature. No one can ever have a perfect, or a comprehensive knowledge about someone else, without being told. So never assume your partner know everything about you, nor know what to do in most situations.
That is why communication is inevitable in every relationship. You must create time to open up both your good and your bad side to each other.
I have heard people say; “He(or she) should have known that I don’t like this”. My questions have been; “Did you tell him(or her) you don’t like it? If you didn’t tell him(or her), how do you expect him or her to know? Most of us just build our relationship onassumptions. No! A relationship(or marriage) built on assumptions is just like a building without foundation.
Never expect success from such a relationship.Communication is the foundation of every successful relationship (or marriage). It help both parties involved to know exactly how to relate with each other, without any problem. One can be able to stand in for the other when one of them is unavailable.
Though, you cannot know everything about each other in a sweep, but every time together should be a time to know more about each other.
A young lady assumed her husband likes purple colour, so she bought him apurple-coloured shirt. The husband never wore the shirt. So, she showed her displeasure, it aroused great contention in the family, that it took the grace of GOD to resolve. This is simply because she assumed her man would like purple colour, and the man also assumed his woman should know the colour he would like(how will she know?). Little issues like that have broken relationships and marriages all because of assumptions.
In conclusion; ASSUMPTION IS THE LOWEST DEGREE OF INTELLIGENCE. IF YOU WANT A DURABLE RELATIONSHIP(OR MARRIAGE), NEVER ASSUME YOUR PARTNER WILL KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU. TELL EACH OTHER EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYTHING…BE WISE…!!!
