MARRIAGE can be a lot of work, but one woman makes it easier with her self-proclaimed “maintenance” tendencies.
TikToker Laura Fragoso divided in a video specifically why her strict tendencies are working in her marriage.
She confessed to being an “incredibly vulnerable woman,” but most people wouldn’t guess.
Fragoso said she and her husband don’t exchange gifts on special occasions, they keep separate bank accounts, and they often meet up with friends and travel without each other.
According to her, people think of her as a “chill woman,” but she’s actually the opposite, she said.
“What you don’t see is that my husband and I literally have a spreadsheet where we have outlined our roles and responsibilities for our home,” she explained.
She went on to list what she and her husband do in their marriage to make it work, like sharing a calendar, scheduling date nights and weekly retrospectives, and going to marriage counseling.
The two also place great importance on communication and even took a conflict resolution class to improve their communication skills.
“Why? Because we have a lot to work through,” said Fragoso.
“We are both firstborns with Type A personalities.
“He comes from divorced parents, I from immigrant parents and we have to deal with many cultural differences.”
Fragoso said goodbye by explaining why she and her husband are so strict in their marriage.
“We live in a time when divorce rates are through the roof and good intentions aren’t good enough.
“You have to put in a lot of work and you have to be very high maintenance and we’re really proud of that.”
One now Wife told how she and her husband live in different apartments and why they are both happy with the arrangement.
In addition, another woman explained why the open relationship between her and her husband worked for them over the last 12 years.
