Marriage is Awesome

Getting married is one of the most wonderful and terrifying experiences we can have in our life. Finding that perfect partner to share all your future dreams and adventures with is magical, but it definitely comes with its own set of challenges. Some of which you never even expect.

Challenges in Marriage

When you decide to share your life with someone and get married, the romance of it all can distract you from the practical things you’ll need to figure out. Like, how will you manage your money?

The road hasn’t always been easy, but with solid communication and a lot of patience we’ve made it through to the other side, and are working together to create the marriage and life we dream of.
