Advice for the first year of marriage
- Don’t take life so seriously. As Charles Franklin said, “no one gets out of this life alive, so leave a footprint of your choice […]. Life is a process, not a goal. Live it now, or you will miss it!”
- Always make time for each other. Making time for your significant other is important as a married couple. Even though you will undoubtedly be busy due to work and other life obligations, prioritize your partner above everything else.
- Create your own traditions. The best part of being married is starting your own traditions that you can continue with your family for years to come. Celebrating your own traditions will also bring you closer as a family.
- Focus on being better, not being right. Sure, it’s great to be right, but it’s better to avoid being egotistical. Of course, there are times when it’s important to be right – but one should pick their battles.
