Ask any married couple and they'll tell you there's no such thing as a "perfect marriage".
Even those in seemingly happy and healthy marriages are still going to have times when their relationship is put to the test. (Shopping for groceries being one).
The good news is, there are plenty of couples who have made their marriages work for the long-term. And they've learnt some pretty important lessons along the way.
Watch: Things people at weddings never say. Post continues below.
To find out the best pieces of marriage advice, we asked women in the Mamamia community to share what they wish they knew before tying the knot.
Here what they had to say:
1. "The saying that you don't just marry the man, you marry the family... it's true... it will eventually be true if it does not feel like that in the beginning! Make sure you know if your partner's family and your values match up."
2. "There is nothing wrong with going to bed angry. I’d rather go to bed cranky and discuss it in the morning when we both have clear heads, instead of trying to solve it at 10pm when we’re both worked up and likely to say something we don’t really mean."
