I find it incredibly wonderful that two people can grow with each other, and despite the passage of time that makes their attractive quirks now seem like annoying habits, they develop a fondness for each other, and an unparallelled understanding of each other that is impossible without togetherness over a long span of time. Participating in a new activity that interests the both of you is one way. Unless you give it an open chance, it's not going to flourish.
This is natural and probably will last the rest of your marriage, or forever (the bad news).
The good news—with conscious communication and planning, a successful marriage means that conflict is inevitable (it has absolutely no reflection on whether or not you are in a marriage that will last), but how you repair your conflict is much more important.
Sometimes this is different for each partner, and if it is not significantly discussed in a very explicit way, it can lead to misunderstandings." She continues: "There is no magic time frame when a couple should date before the engagement, but the rule for any happy and successful marriage is to realize this—all couples go through a 'romantic love' phase.
This lasts anywhere from 2 days to 26 months, and then the couple will enter into the power struggle or the conflict phase of their relationship.
