One thing is for certain when we are approaching a significant life change: People will dish out loads of advice. Before getting married, I remember advice coming from all angles, both solicited and unsolicited. Don’t get me wrong, I know our loved ones only had our best interest in mind, but it can be overwhelming to receive so much counsel. Of all the advice we heard, there was one strong theme we consistently heard: Marriage is hard.
Sure, marriage takes work and intention, but it is so much more than just hard work. As with most things, experience is the best teacher, so here are some significant things I learned about marriage after celebrating our first anniversary.
