What We Wish We'd Known Before Getting Married from Things I Wish I'd Known Before We Got Married by Gary Chapman.(9/9)

  1. You can go to bed angry, and sometimes you should. It can help to step away from an argument if things are especially heated.
  2. Your spouse cannot be your everything. Don't rely upon them for all your social interactions. This is a no-duh sort of lesson, but one that's easier to follow if you make an effort to have a life outside of your relationship.
  3. If you're feeling heated, it can help to sit down and talk to each other about how you're each feeling. Most important, remember to listen. Understanding the stress your partner is under can help you understand and forgive the behavior you found so agita-inducing.
  4. Sharing a bed (and a living space, for that matter) is hard. Until it isn't.
  5. Men take it personally if you're not in the mood for sex. Work hard to make it a priority, even if you're exhausted/stressed/disinterested.
  6. Men are romantic... in their own way. You may not receive surprise candy buttons, but if you pay attention, you'll start realizing that they do a lot for you when you're not looking. Notice this, and let it give you the warm fuzzies.
  7. Marriage is about compromise, as independent as you are, and as frustrating as that is.
