Transitions in Marriage
This week in class we learned a lot about how to start our marriage off to a good start, and how we can remain unified and completely in love and involved in our spouse's life. President Spencer W. Kimball taught: “Two people coming from different backgrounds learn soon after the ceremony is performed that stark reality must be faced. There is no longer a life of fantasy or of make-believe; we must come out of the clouds and put our feet firmly on the earth. Responsibility must be assumed and new duties must be accepted. Some personal freedoms must be relinquished, and many adjustments, unselfish adjustments, must be made” I think it is really important to learn early on that you and your spouse will see things differently, but that you need to allow them to express themselves, and take into account their ideas.
