Look beyond your wedding plans...what do you see? Hopefully, a blissfully happy future with your best friend in the world, including plenty of love, romance, hot nights (or mornings) and sweet nothings. But a successful marriage doesn’t just happen—it takes commitment, communication, and staying true to all of those promises you made in your wedding vows.

The bright spot in your spouse's day? Coming home to you after a hectic workday, of course! You both probably spend the majority of your time working, managing the household, or dealing with other mundane (but necessary) tasks, so it's crucial to make each other laugh and enjoy life together. Be silly, crack inside jokes, plan adventurous dates, share each other's sporting or pop culture interests and try new activities (even if you're terrible at them). Also—this is very important—be fun when you're around his friends and family, too. A fun spouse lights up the room, reminding him how lucky he is to have you.
