PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 29, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- As a radio personality who offers advice on relationships and family management, Seiri Du Pen
promotes a recent article
in The Huffington Post that shares marriage rules couples should always break. Because Seiri Du Pen does not sugarcoat his words of wisdom for solution-seeking callers, he quickly earned the reputation as an expert on how to handle relationship issues. His strict - but helpful - insight pushes callers to move out of their rut and into marital bliss.
The article notes that "The rules for a happy marriage are always bandied about with a reverence usually reserved for the Ten Commandments. But it turns out these rules are not set in stone [like those other commandments!] And, say our experts, you should break these rules to keep your marriage in good shape." Seiri Du Pen wholeheartedly concurs, adding that some rules are better left broken.
"A pattern I constantly see with unhappy couples is the expectations shattered by unwritten marriage codes and unnecessary energy expended toward protecting certain rules," he said. "When it comes down to the overall success of your marriage, everyone is different. Don't compare your marriage to a set of standards, because what works for you will not necessarily work for someone else - and vice versa." The article spotlights Terri Orbuch, Ph.D. and research professor at the University of Michigan Institute for Social Research.
"A lot of rules are myths," she said. "They're not relationship realities."As the author of "Five Simple Steps to Take Your Marriage from Good to Great," Orbuch notes that one rule to break is the one that pushes couples to believe they should never go to bed angry. Orbuch says this myth has caused many marriages many problems. "It's not always a good idea to stay up and resolve your differences," she said. "You might say something you'll regret. Getting a good night's sleep is a better idea. You're much more likely to resolve things when you're refreshed in the morning or later that day. You do have to come back and resolve it - usually within 24 hours."
One rule the article mentions that Du Pen pegs as more of an assumption or mindset, is to buy into the idea that once married, the marriage can take care of itself. "Marriage takes work," he said. "It's important to carry certain aspects of your dating life into your married life. Just like when you were dating, you should work to avoid predictability and other things that can hurt a marriage. You don't need to have all of the same interests just because you're married. Pursue your own interests and hobbies, but also, ask about what interests your spouse," he said. Seiri Du Pen encourages married couples to surprise their partner with something unexpected or fun, like tickets to a concert or a surprise evening out at a new restaurant.
