What advice would you give someone you know when they are getting married?
I like to be totally HONEST with them so they don't have unrealistic expectations.
Because the HONEST truth is that marriage takes work if it is going to last.
And like the plaque on my wall says...So this isn't HOME SWEET HOME, ADJUST.
You both have to be willing to compromise and meet in the middle.
That is the ONLY WAY that you both can stand strong together to withstand anything that may come your way.
Any relationship whether it is with your spouse, your boss, your coworkers, your friends, your family, your neighbors or even your pet, requires some level of give and take.
Every healthy and happy relationship takes UNIQUE people to make the necessary ADJUSTMENTS.
