  • I would suggest marriage counceling to be sure before you make that step. After all marriage is a lifetime commitment.

  • Never go to bed angry, and don't fight over that which isn't worth fighting about. And, no, money is not worth fighting over.
    My grandpa passed that advice on to me, and it saw he and my grandma through 54 happy years of marriage.
    Congrats to you!

  • Make sure he's the one. Your gut will know this. The truth feels happy. Travel before kids, preferably out of the USA.

  • Don't forget about your marriage. If they start to feel like a room mate then things might be going sour....Protect your marriage, it sounds harsh, but your marriage NEEDS to come before the kids sometimes...in the end, the kids will leave you and you will be left with your hubby again...talk talk talk talk talk, NEVER stop talking and sharing. Have sex, don't nit pick and just love him because he loves you.

  • Don't forget that you are both your own people. Enjoy your individual interests and don't try to change each other. Pick your battles wisely and remember that your words can never be taken back.

  • Marriage is a lifetime commitment, and personally I dont believe in divorce. I dont know about the conseling thing... I never went. My husband and I have known eachother all our lives and were only dating for about two months before we married, and I have never been happier. Make sure it is truely what you want and that you are ready. We have been married for over a year and I wouldnt take it back for the world.... I think there is nothing better than marriage life and the excitment of building a bigger family. Good luck.

  • Keep Having SEX. Even if you are not in the mood, just start and you will get in the mood. Don't use sex against him or as a bargining chip. Do at least one nice thing for him a day. Fuss about the small stuff a little. If you have had a fight sleep! Wake up in the morning with a clear head and then discuss the problem.
