Every Married Couple Go Through These Stages In Marriage

 This article is part of a series in collaboration with Bonobology.


Marriage is a heavily loaded term that comes with a list of DOs and DON’Ts. This relationship is typically expected to last till death does the couple apart. When a companionship as long term as this is in play, one is bound to find a pattern in it. It is a popular belief in philosophy that collective conscience and collective memory play a huge role in our daily lives. We collectively act out our roles in the society and marriage is another such event. The duo play out certain roles in the marriage and together cross one milestone after another. Going on their first road trip to managing finance as a couple, starting out as a family of two to moving on to having children, they do it all with the satisfaction of being a team.


Let us find out the 5 stages of a married couple’s life.


The honeymoon

Can’t keep eyes, hands, thoughts off you.




Two years into marriage

Getting to know each other’s idiosyncrasies.




Babies! Here they come

No romance, no sleep, no late night parties – game over!
