You may know already, and it’s possible that you don’t; but here are three ways your lifestyle changes when you tie the knot, according to experts:

1. You become less outgoing

When people become married, they tend to become less outgoing and somehow become the type to stay more at home.

A recent German study, in which researchers looked at personality changes among nearly 15,000 people over a period of four years shows this.

Jule Specht at the University of Münster and her colleagues found that wedded participants showed decreases in the traits of extroversion and openness to experience as compared with the others who were yet unmarried and ‘free’ to do as they please.

In 2017, a team of Dutch psychologists led by Tila Pronk at Tilburg University claimed that that two of the most important marital traits are self-control and forgiveness.

Having the ability to bite your tongue, hold back your words and restrain for saying hurtful things even when you really have it at the tip of your tongue… it is one of the biggest features married people often find themselves learning unconsciously.
