I'm getting married very soon. In a little less than 8 days. Are there any tips or advice that you can offer for the new transition of our lives together.

-- Don't lose your sense of individuality. Couples don't have to do absolutely everything together; give each other a little space.
-- Nagging is not loving.
-- Don't try to change each other. It won't work. Accept each other for who you are.
-- Money isn't the number one killer of relationships. Resentment is.
-- The opposite of love isn't hatred. It's indifference.
-- Even the best relationships have their occasional tough times; there's no such thing as a perfect relationship.3
