At a recent bridal shower, I was asked to give one piece of advice to the happy couple that they could carry with them through the next 40 or 50 years. So here it is:
Marriage is hard work.
Okay, so it's not the most romantic or sexy advice but I should get points for honesty. Because living with another person, loving them when there's only two dollars in the bank and the car payment is due or the baby has kept you up all night(again) or the dog has made used your chair as his own personal fire hydrant can almost be impossible at times. But it's in these moments that a marriage is made; a forever love.
Question: What piece of advice would you give a newly-wed couple?
