There's certainly no shortage of marriage advice to go around.
Even before tying the knot, couples are bombarded with unsolicited nuggets of wisdom from friends, strangers and especially that rogue aunty.
And while some may be genuinely helpful, others are unrealistic or just straight up... wrong.
Watch: Things people at weddings never say. Post continues below.
So we decided to ask the Mamamia community to share their worst pieces of marriage advice they've ever been told. And boy, were there some doozies.
Here's what they had to say.
1. "'Make time for a date night once a fortnight.' We're both working full time with active socials lives and have a toddler and another one on the way, it's absolutely unrealistic."
2. "'Never go to bed angry.' Sometimes a break and distance from the argument can be far more productive than going round and round in circles. Especially if you're like my partner and I who are both very headstrong."
3. "'The first year of marriage is the hardest.' Not really. We had a baby a year before we got married, that was pretty hard. And now we have three and that's pretty hard. The year after we were married was pretty straight forward, actually."
4. "That you are always going to want to snuggle - hint, you won't but it doesn't mean you aren't still in love."
5. "'You've got to stay together for the kids.' If I followed this advice, I wouldn't be in the happy marriage I am now and the mum to two more kids."
6. "That you should marry a man. I love the men in my life but getting married to a woman was the right choice for me."
7. "I've heard from several older women that I should 'stay attractive for my husband'... I wasn't sure how to respond in all honesty. If I need to 'stay attractive' then so does he."
8."At my actual wedding reception while I was going around greeting guests, my great aunty pulled me aside and gave me a speech about name advice. I hyphenated my name with my husband's, and I don't go by Mrs, I go by Dr. And she decided to pass on the advice to stop doing that because women should really like to identify as a married woman, and by having silly titles and last names you'll never really feel like his wife. So she told me to get over myself and just spend 'a year or so' doing my thing before switching back to Mrs and taking his surname."
