4 signs you are in an immature relationship

11 August 2015, 16:12 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - I have seen a couple of things in my prime years and relationships between husband and wife or boyfriend and girlfriend have always held a slight fascination for me. Maybe it is because I am yet to understand commitment. In my knowledge, commitment to the wrong things in life equals being miserable. Commitment to the wrong person also equals misery yet that is what this people in marriages and relationships do. From a young age, I just never aligned myself to sticking with miser, I rebel against it. Especially when I can change it.

On the other hand, it also fascinated me because I wanted to be in one. Just so, I can have someone to annoy. It is slightly amusing when one minute you are having a conversation over locking the door, and it soon escalates to why someone is always late in the night and then it goes to sleeping arrangements. From 0-100 real quick, no plot. Just two people who end up not making sense because they ended up together. Relating to the opposite sex, and on a personal level can be very amusing if you do not overthink it.

Being in a relationship, or being married does not mean you are mature. Just look around you and you will understand what I mean.

Fake breakups

You two have been together for years but the slightest sign of a bad situation and you both call it quits. Only to ruin it after a month or a week by getting back together. It is a never ending cycle for the both of you. Your way of solving anything is getting away from the other person and forgetting about it. Only to have something else to argue about next time. It is even worse when the two of you are married and the kids have to keep shuttling in that confusion. In that time, you might have also been seeing other people because you were allegedly separated and could do what you want.

Getting back at the other one

Have you ever seen that relationship where one person doss this and the other has to ‘revenge’. Then when they are done, they are back at it. Relationships are about wanting the best for your partner but these one skipped that class. They are out to sabotage each other. In family, finances, in their work, you name it and they will find a way to ruin it.

Lack of communication

It can ever be stressed enough the importance of communication in any relationship/ marriage. When they say marry your best friend, they basically mean marry someone whom you can be open with. We all know some of our best friends would make lousy partners, so they do not literally mean that. Immature couple, cannot talk to each other even about simple things, they just end up hitting a brick wall. They just bicker, bicker and bicker.

You cannot come to a decision together

In efforts to make this work you decide that this person handles this and the other that. No one interferes with the other ones decisions. You only come to realize how trickier it is when you have a family and it is no longer the two of you. When you both try to come together to discuss anything it just creates tension because you cannot think together.
