Oh the newlywed phase. It's like a year long honeymoon filled with passion, lust, and shiny new wedding presents. Or at least that's what it's supposed to be, right? That first year of marriage is also a time where you and your partner are figuring out what being married really means to your relationship. Even if you've been a couple for years and even cohabited before walking down the aisle, the first year of marriage is a learning curve for everyone. There will be arguments and fights that all newlyweds have, but it's how you as a couple handle those fights that can ensures wedded bliss for years to come. At the very least, it can help ensure you and your husband can squash those little fights before they become very big fights.
My favorite piece of advice on how to have a long and happy marriage is to make sure neither one of you wants to get divorced on the same day. So how do you do that during the ups and down of that first year of marriage? A good place to start is knowing what most newlyweds fight about and the best way to stop those fights.
