Meeting, dating, laughing, playing, and getting to know a person is fun. Both of you are discovering and exploring a new person and beginning a relationship. But relationships are hard work. They require time, effort and focus from both parties.

If the relationship has struggled while dating, those problems will be magnified in marriage.
Even in the best of relationships, marriage is difficult. Focus on establishing a good, solid relationship before entering into marriage. Then the new struggles of wedlock will be met by two people grounded and committed to each other. If your marriage was supposed to help the rocky relationship, you are probably dealing with extreme stress.
Here’s the secret: Bad relationships and difficult conversations get worse after marriage! Here’s what you must do: Discuss those things that each of you struggle with and tackle the issues one at a time.
My advice: If the dating is difficult and full of strife, don’t marry.
