is the first year of marriage really that difficult?

I was reading an article this morning that said the 1st year is usually a rocky year for newlyweds.. is that true? What if you have been living with this person before you got married? or Does it only apply to those who are going to be livinig together for the 1st time?

IMO, I think it only applies to those who are going to be living together for the very first time.  I have been living with my DF for about 8 months right now (getting married next year) and i honestly don't think I will be seeing a difference other than we will be husband and wife ! What are your thoughts? I am curious to see!

For us it was I wont lie. I was also pregnant and extremely hormonal. Like crazy bitch mode 24-7 lol. I cried and got mad so easily. We have been married for 8 years and have three kids. My first pregnancy was the only one where I was a psycho lol.

Really? That is interesting, I have heard different stories about different times. Some say 1st others say 5th. I suppose it depends on the couple.

We lived together before getting married and first year was definitely the hardest for us but it may have been more related to some major life changes that were going on rather than having just gotten married.

Mine was deployed the first year. The first year he was actually home for was difficult because we had to learn to live together again.

For example, buying a house or having a baby?
