They say the first year of marriage is the hardest. Maybe that's true — because you learn so much about each other during those first 12 months, and often a lot of stuff you didn't include in your marriage vows. Whether you’re living with someone for the first time and just now finding out how long they actually spend in the bathroom or just joining bank accounts and discovering their secret fast-food habit (aka why they always smell faintly of french fries after work), the first year of marriage is definitely a roller coaster ride.

Marriage can be amazing but also super, super gross.
You get to learn every single thing about a person. All the tiny little details that never even crossed your mind. Sometimes much, much more than you wanted to know.
