For several couples, from the 1st month up to the 1st year can be the most trying period of their marriage. See Surprises to expect in your first year of marriage:
1. The real extent of interdependence: That adjustment from being independent to having someone as a partner can very overwhelming for some couples.
2. Managing expectations: Lots of couples go into marriages with several expectations. At times, these expectations are met, some other times, they are not.
3. Lifestyle differences: The truth is, newlyweds can not expect to be alike from the very first day. It is up to the man and woman to understand. Love is always about compromises.
