“The beginning of a marriage is beautiful. The partnership is still growing and you both are learning more about each other every day.

Remember that patience is a virtue, and disagreement is nothing out of the norm.

Do not let your spouse leave for the day upset. Be gentle and patient in the morning. The best one can do is to soothe the soul. By the end of the day when he returns, he will want to understand and talk with you.

During disagreements, your partner may not listen at first. But instead of finding the differences in each other, it is always best to be patient and to hear the other’s side. Once you both have a clear head, you will each be more accepting and willing to listen.

Marriage is about learning together, and accepting challenges with the hopes to bettering yourselves as partners.”
