Buzzfeed asked people to share the things they wished they had known before they got married, and the responses are too real! Here are some of our favorite answers:
"That it's OK to not always like each other. But you have to choose to love them every day, even when you don't likethem very much."
"I didn't realize how difficult dealing with in-laws would be. I had to learn how to communicate with a family that works very differently than mine does."
"That I would immediately be pressured to have kids by everyone. I couldn't even have a stomachache without being asked if I was pregnant."
"That there might be some post-wedding blues. My husband and I had already been living together before we got married, and we didn't have children right away. So, for a while, it felt like there was nothing to look forward to."
"That graciously and quietly picking up some slack when your partner forgets to close the closet door or wash the dishes goes a long way to keep the peace."
"That my spouse isn't a mindreader. Just because how you feel is obvious to you doesn't mean it's obvious to them. Tell them what you need them to know."
"That marriage is fighting about ridiculous things like both of you knowing the milk in the fridge is expired and neither of you throwing it out."
