The ways in which we live and love change as time goes on, shaping and shifting alongside trends and societal expectations. From living alone as a single woman rather than living with your parents until marriage to splitting roles and responsibilities equally rather than conforming to traditional gender roles, relationships have evolved a lot in the past decades. The best part about modern relationships is the ability to blend older traditions with newer ones to find a balance that works for your unique relationship. No matter which traditions you celebrate, they are a great way for couples to create lasting memories and make a relationship more meaningful.

Check out the informational graphic below which showcases ways that relationship traditions have evolved from the single phase to dating, engaged and married phases as well. One theme that shines throughout all phases of a relationship is staying true to yourself and going for what you want.

It carries through to the “dating” section by suggesting to have open conversations about moving in together rather than waiting around to be asked, and the shop for an engagement ring together ,where the suggestion is to shop for an engagement ring together rather than leaving the task up to one person. In the marriage section, all of the suggestions follow this theme, from making decisions together, sharing roles and responsibilities rather than following traditional gender roles, and contributing equally in meaningful ways.?
