It is true that your favorite pal to hang out with is your wife. But, sometimes you have to go out without her. If you want to go to a fitness center, and that too during early hours of the day, do it. Even though she is the most significant person in your life, give some time to be yourself.

2. Explore a New Place Alone or With your Friends

If you are a kind of globetrotter, go along with your friends to several destinations you have never seen. There is no need to take your partner along with you  when you do a daring deed. Adventure is something  which you do to gladden your heart.

3. Don't hold Yourself Back from Realizing your Dreams

It doesn't mean that you are perfidious to your partner. You are bringing back the experiences of before getting into the relationship. It is just to prevent from losing yourself.

5. Enjoy Being Alone

Having a better half doesn't mean that you have to be with that person all the time. If you are a person who loves spending time with yourself alone, get inside your room, lock the door and do meditation . You can even order something from a nearby hotel and gobble up the french fries or pizza alone. I also agree with you if you tell me that we have to be alone to be cheerful.

6. You have a Right to Wear Anything you Like

Being someone's right doesn't mean that you should wear a loose-fitting dress because of the reason that your husband doesn't like you wearing that. There is nothing wrong in allowing men to see and enjoy your curves or cleavage, but they are prohibited from touching it for sure.

7. Don't Lose Friends just Because They are Men

Friends is a general term and you can have a relationship with your friend, but only a healthy one! Just because your husband doesn't like you to have a friend who is a boy doesn't come in the way of your friendship.
