What advice would you give to newly-weds. "Don't get married" I hear some of you shout! "Don't be so cynical" I shout back (I actually whisper as I've got a sore throat)!
I've been married twice myself. My love life would've made a good fly on the wall documentary but I'm delighted to say that my hubs is by far the best thing that ever happened too me (and he didn't have an affair after five years either)!
My advice to newly-weds or those who are moving in together is-
•Wash the pots together
Then one person isn't left to do it all on there own feeling bitter and wondering how to make dog food pie for their partner.
Also this brings the opportunity for some fun with the bubbles!
Those of you with dishwashers are missing out.
One of you will find it very hard to sleep and will become even more angry when there partner is in the land of nod as soon as their head hits the pillow, snoring as loud as they can "just to piss you off". While the other one lays awake looking on the Internet on their mobile/cell phone for the ingredients for dog food pie.
Also, it's fun to make up at bedtime! (nudge,nudge)
• Stop the jealousy.
Jealousy is an awful emotion that most people (not all) grow out of as they mature when they realise it's pointless.
Think of it this way, we all look, maybe even flirt but that doesn't mean we love our partners any less. That works both ways.
If the one you love is going to have an affair then jealousy won't stop them, in fact it's more likely to push them away.
Also, remember that they wouldn't be making this commitment unless they loved you.
Maybe it's time you loved yourself!
• Respect each other.
If you're annoyed with something they've done then tell them. Don't go title tattling to your friends.
Also, this is a way of getting to know each other and why they do that thing that annoys the hell out of you. Not dog food pies required!
You have to have fun together, life can be a serious business which needs lightening up. Find your sense of humour and use it. It's a good feeling when you make your other half really laugh out loud, and listen, you're laughing too.
Also, have you heard that saying "laugh them into bed". Enough said!
Well, there you have it, that's my advice, take it or leave it!
Just to let you know, I make my hubs laugh loads!(wink wink)
Also I've never ever made dog food pie!
So, what advice would you give to newly-weds?
