People Change in Relationships

Jasbina Ahluwalia

So you have a perspective from that wide range. I think that’s very helpful.

In preparation for this interview, I asked Parijat beforehand to share with me some of the most common issues that MySahana encounters with respect to marital issues.

I’d like to share with our listeners a few of the issues Parijat identified one by one. Then I will ask Parijat to share with our listeners some of the best ways to resolve each of these issues.

The first issue that I’d like to ask Parijat to address is, “Why did my partner change after we got married?”

People Change in Relationships: Woman’s Complaint

That’s one that we get really often from the 50 to 60 year-old men and women. It’s mostly women, but both men and women have contacted us.

People change. Everybody changes.

If you notice that your partner has changed, you can be sure that you have changed as well.

People Change in Relationships: Age and Experience

With all kinds of life events that happen and just by getting older, we tend to shift who we are as people.

I think any time in life overall, whether you just started dating somebody, if you’ve been married a few years or you’ve been married for numerous decades, it’s always a great idea to check in with each other.

People Change in Relationships, Maintain Conversation

You can ask, “How do you feel about things? What are your opinions about things?”

Make sure that you’re always on the same page. We’re all evolving all the time.
