What advice would you give?

Greetings, blogosphere.  Many thanks for the kind words in my last post.  For a great laugh today, check out JBTC's mini cheese heads for her cats.

Although KB is almost 3 months old, juggling part time teaching, the house, and every day life has been a challenge.  I would love to blog more (thanks to the poster who alerted me to the iPo.d Blogger app) but posts are hard to formulate when KB wakes up from her short naps.  To our great surprise and delight, KB has been sleeping 6-7 hours every night since 6 weeks old.  Woo-hoo!  For the record, I did the same thing as a baby (I was BF exclusively).  Thank God she inherited that.

So, on to my question.  This weekend my hubby and I will help present at a marriage prep weekend.  You can count on some great comments from me during the s.exu.ality talk about infertility.  But I'm wondering...what advice to you wish someone would have told you about marriage/family/etc. before you got married?  Please share and I will relay your pearls of wisdom to the wide-eyed engaged couples. ;)

KB and I are in search of spring weather.  It's hiding somewhere.

Start 'em young! :)

Marriage is something you need to work at. I'm pretty sure I had heard the words before, but never quite GOT it. Maybe there's a better way to put it, but I had always assumed marriage just "was," when really, there is not MARRIAGE if you are not invested in working at it daily.

Sometimes that is easy, and sometimes that is hard. But it's necessary.

A great book to recommend is "the Temperament God Gave You" I think that's the title. It is totally changing how my husband and I interact and argue.

I would say to pray for your marriage every day, and that it's something to work for, not take for granted. On the sub/infertility side, just make them aware that there's a chance it might not happen on their own timeline. I was very naive about that.
