You've done the wedding planning, said "I do" and now it begins – the journey of a lifetime. Here is a list of 15 things ALL newlyweds need to know.
Hey there! I'm Caroline Henry, a newlywed (going on 3 weeks since the wedding, so I'm basically an expert, right?!) and an employee for The NewlyWed Box. This month's box is all about communication, and let me tell you... I KNOW the struggle. When you first move in together as a married couple, communicating is definitely not as simple as you'd think it'd be. Or at least, that's how it's been for me and my husband, and maybe you can relate.
We read all the books. We talked to ALL the people in ALL the stages of marriage. We did premarital. We asked the questions, we sat through the classes, we did the whole “preparing for marriage” thing.
For many, the first week on the job is full of uncertainties, adjustments and even mistakes. Joining a new sports team or a band is certain to start off with some failed expectations, missed notes and assignments, too. I’ve worked at companies where the first week was awful, but my time there ended up being fulfilling, successful and beneficial for everyone involved. The first week of anything new can be hard!

The day has finally arrived. You walk down the aisle taking in all of the people who have come to witness this momentous occasion. You and your fiancé enthusiastically say “I do!” There is a great celebration and finally you leave. Now, the two of you begin your journey of happily ever after.
