Just Married

All those details you spent months agonising over miraculously came together: you said your vows, had your party, and somehow, here you are—married!

Cake, flowers and dress are all exciting, but there's more at stake than one day. Your wedding is a day; a marriage is a lifetime. You don't just want to be married, you want to be happily married. Think about the next 50 years. Put at least the same amount of time and effort that you are using to plan your wedding into planning your marriage.

By the time we reach our next wedding anniversary, most of us know how to handle the ups and downs of marriage. Sure, in going through our marriage life may have a few hiccups along the way, but we also will learn to negotiate holidays with the in-laws, wrangle tantrum-throwing kids, and talk each other through blown transmissions and career crossroads.

It looks like we're in for a whole new set of marital challenges. That's because, on the whole, most of us like being married, and so do our spouses. And while there are certain challenges inherent in waking up next to the same person for thousands mornings in a row, many so-called "inevitable" marriage pitfalls. 

Note: To my wife "InsyaAllah, we well go through it together"
