Things They Don't Tell You About Marriage

  • Most of your fights will be about things that are completely ridiculous. The last fight Kristen and I had was about onions. I kid you not.

  • Keeping a "date night" is very important. But near impossible to maintain.

  • Nap while you can. Because once the kids come along...not so much with the naps.

  • Be careful of arrogant married people who'll try to force you to do your life the same way they do theirs. (There are more of these people than you think...)

  • Sometimes the smart thing to do is just keep your mouth shut.

  • Brag on your spouse. Be sincere and take every opportunity to praise your beloved.

  • Your spouse isn't you. Seems easy, but it truly is one of the hardest things to learn!

  • Know your gifts. Know your weaknesses. And know them well.
