Some people believe that the first year of marriage is a nightmare, whereas others believe that it will be the best year of your life. The matter of opinion changes because of perspective. Marriage doesn’t have to change your relationship. People don’t magically change. Attitudes such as learning a bit of equality and working hard to maintain your relationship are key points to a successful marriage.
- It’s important to discuss your life as a married couple before you actually get married.
- Alone time is okay, just do it on the same night.
- Don’t let disagreements turn into full-blown fights. Argue like grown ups.
