Can marriage ruin a perfectly good relationship? That’s the question we set out to answer, as millenials are increasingly putting off marriage and having children later in life.


“I see couples who were ‘solid’ at the beginning of their relationship and then get married but end up struggling and feeling that marriage ruined their relationship or that they are with the wrong person just a few years in,” therapist Liz Higgins told us. “In my clinical experience, the seven-year itch has begun to look more like the three-year one."


But what is it about marriage that changes a relationship — sometimes for the worse? We found out.

In case you missed it:

 

If you needed another reason to rag on Valentine’s Day, we found it for you: “Valentighting” is a dating trend in which people are dumping their significant others right before the Hallmark holiday in order to avoid buying a gift or taking the relationship to the next level. You may have spent hours agonizing over the best gift for your S.O. (what screams, “I like you, but I don’t want you to meet my family just yet?”) only to find yourself date-less when February 14 rolls around. Not cool.

If you’re married, you don’t have to deal with “Valentighting” — but that doesn’t mean Valentine’s Day is all it’s cracked up to be. If Feb. 14 meant fancy dinner reservations and red roses before marriage and kids, now it’s more like dashing to the drug store for a card at the last minute when there are approximately three options left.
