  • No matter how much his faults bother you, try to think of at least one GOOD thing to say to him every day. At the end of every day, as him how his day went, and never go to bed angry at eachother... try to resolve whatever issue you may have before you go to bed.

    With little ones in the picture, it's hard to find YOU time. Make sure you get enough alone time (without him or the kids) and make sure he gets enough alone time too, and then make sure you get enough alone time together without the little one.

    And make sure he does his share of the house work...if you are SAHM, don't let him get away with murder, make him pick up after himself at least a little bit.

    Remember that the vows you take are sacred. You should mean them with all your heart and soul before you speak them. Good luck, I wish you many happy years together. :D

  • talk about money!! !the only fights my husband and i have are over money, whos spending what, its too little its too much (to spend) blah blah blah the list goes on. don't be afraid to talk about it b/c if you don't than it blows up into something huge. and tell each other you love each other every day, that can start to fall by the wayside after a couple of years b/c its a given, compliments too start to fall so make sure you try to compliment each other as much as you did before....

  • Don't be a jealous person. ALWAYS be honest. And ALWAYS communicate with eachother. I have seen so many friends and fam members create such unhappiness in there lives by NOT being open with eachother. It makes a world of difference. Good luck, and congrats!!

  • I would say that the 2nd yr is harder than the first. the first yr you'Re still playing nice, and trying to be romantic. in that 2nd yr, you both let your guards down, so then that's when it get s a little tougher

  • Marriage takes work, but it comes with huge rewards! Don't go to be mad. Always say 'I love you', even when you are mad. Know that you can't change him, but you can change together. Good luck! I'm happy for you!!

  • Never lose your sense of humor. Those that laugh together (not at each other) stay together.

  • in the words of dr. phil...a marriage is not 50/50 it's 100/100. you are not his better half, and he not your's. 1 & 1 make 2.
    i have seen my parents fight once, neither of them can even remember what it was about. all anyone remembers is that my dad throw the newspaper up in the air and he went fishing.
    because, you pick your battles. if you don't want to fight about your husband not putting his cup in the sink, then don't. if you don't think it's not worth a fight, then it's probably not.
    start sentences with 'i feel' instead of 'everytime you....' everytime that i want him to appoligize first i always say 'i just feel____whenever you___, i cant help it, that's just how i feel' he appoligizes, then i do.
    men are simple beings. they want to get laid regularly, fed regularly and someone to tell them that they are needed.
