Married people reveal what changes in relationships after marriage on Reddit

It's been said relationships tend to go downhill after couples say 'I do,' but is marriage really a game changer as they say?

Married couples have taken to Reddit to reveal how much relationships actually change once they've tied the knot.

The forum asked: 'Married people, what's changed from when you were dating to now?'

Men and women opened up with a range of answers from the searingly honest: 'Dated for two years. Been married for four. Sex has changed, he doesn't have sex with me as much anymore. We don't go out much on dates. When we do, it's awkward as hell'.

While others were happy to admit a wedding ring had left them relishing time away from their other halves.

You just become comfortable in the relationship and no one works at it, but you won't leave because your scared of being alone.

I married a man after knowing him for 3 months. Next September we will have been married 20 years. Things aren't always perfect but I wouldn't change a thing.

I've been married 5 wonderful years.... 28 actually, but 5 were wonderful.
My wife and I only fight about 2 things: sex and money..I think she charges me too much!
Seriously, marriage is tough. I've been trying hard all those years and now wonder what I might have missed. My wife expects too much and takes way too much for granted. Sadly, I'm ready to throw in the towel.

I don't know anyone who is happily married. It seems that people only get married because they don't want to be alone and then complain about their spouse.

My common law husband died after 20 years.
I have been alone for 10
I'm fine.

Marriage becomes ownership. No one wants to be owned, do they?
