Relationship Advice

It seems ironic that planning a wedding should take a toll on your relationship, but trust us, it happens. Marriage brings up serious questions about the future, children, living together, and other changes that you and your new spouse will encounter as you build your life together. But don't worry! Every newly married couple goes through this transition stage, and our advice and suggestions will help make the process go as smoothly as possible. While you are planning, you might have questions like, "What do I do if my fiance wants to invite his ex to our wedding?" or "How can we know for sure if we are right for each other?" No matter what the situation, you'll find answers to the most popular relationship issues that come up while planning a wedding. You'll also find advice for after the wedding, from getting health insurance as a married couple to how to change your name and how to deal with the question of when to have a baby. If you can't find the answer you are looking for, feel free to submit your question (you just might see the answer on our site!), or check out TheNest.com for even more newlywed and relationship advice.
