Your wedding day is meant to be the happiest day of your life. It’s the day you’ve spent the last few years dreaming about, and everything is going to be perfect. You’re marrying your very own Prince Charming, and you’re gonna spend the rest of your life with him. Bliss!

The thing is that marriage doesn’t come gift-wrapped. It comes in kit form, which means that you and your husband have to work at things. And in a marriage there are often just as many lows as there are highs. As much as we’d rather keep a marriage drama-free, the reality is that this is just not always possible.

Get your marriage off to an awesome start by avoiding these 10 mistakes:

It means different things to different people. Personally, I interpret it this way: If you focus on the bad stuff in life, your life will be negative. If you focus on the good stuff, your life will be much more positive.

It sounds so simple. Yet so many newly wed couples fall into the trap of getting annoyed by their partners failings. It’s kinda natural. Often, when we get married we are also living with our partner for the first time, and as such we are only just getting to know his real habits.

But instead of focusing on his penchant for lying in on a Sunday morning until noon or having a few beers after work when we want him home, why not focus on his good qualities a bit more?

Mistake 2: Neglecting Kind Gestures

When you first dated him, you couldn’t stop showering him with kindness.
