There will be money issues
The first year is usually the trial and error period. You’re both still trying to figure out how you’re going to make it work. Finances are always a touchy subject, even for couples who’ve been married for many years, so don’t beat yourself about it if you don’t get it right the first time.
It won’t change your relationship
How many times have you heard other couples say marriage changes your relationship? You’ve probably lost count and it terrifies you, right? The truth of the matter is that you as individuals change as well. If you were used to sharing chores continue doing so even when now you’re husband and wife, it’ll keep the spark alive.
You learn how to pick your battles
This is something to perfect very early in your marriage and get it out of the way as quickly as you can. If you don’t you might get to the point of wanting to strangle one another way to soon. As opposed to when you were dating, you won’t fight over not taking out the bin, there are much more important issues to be addressed.
You’ll have the best sex
Contrary to popular belief, marriage doesn’t mean the end of a great sex life. In the first year, you can’t help it, all you want is to be with your partner, the rest of the world can wait. Once kids are in the picture, your sex life might change, hence it’s never a good idea to neglect it as the years go on.
