NO matter how long they dated, the first 5 years is always a major hurdle.
Little wonder they say, if you can go through the first 5 years, you can through the next and maybe more.
Here are 5 common or rather frequent areas where couple have issues, resolve them, and have new ones until they adapt a lot more.
1. Managing Personal Spaces:
learning to accommodate each other in the new shared spaces. it is not easy but very possible.
2. Managing In-laws and emergent demands and boundaries
There is an new and larger family, interest and opinions to manage. handle with patience and care yet be firm.
3. Managing Finances:

4. Managing New Baby:

5. Managing Late Work Hours:

They may look simple but they are as important as the air the couple breathe in the house.
